The Metropolitan Museum of Manila maintains permanent and temporary exhibitions of pre-colonial, modern and contemporary Philippine art. It aims to make art accessible to all via its multi-disciplinary approach in content and design, its interactive stations and educational programs.

Also featured is the era of Spanish colonization that produced religious images and objects by the country’s most illustrious artists, some who garnered international recognition at the turn of the 20th century in Europe such as painters Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo and Juan Luna.

An expansive main gallery showcases international art and thematically curated temporary exhibitions. The second floor galleries will soon exhibit a permanent collection of paintings, sculptures and prints representing turn of the 21st century and the best in contemporary Philippine art.

Featured in this post is the Met Open 2014, a temporary benefit exhibition, which ran from September 20-October 4, 2014.

Tapas exhibit!

For P100 we got access to their new Tapas exhibit, their Russian exhibit, and the contemporary Filipino art section. Too bad their basement exhibit was still closed. I think that area is where the gold pots are or something.

Nevertheless it was a refreshing experience for me and my grandma since we're just usually shopping at malls, not that that's a bad thing. 128514

But seriously, I hope people can still find the time to appreciate our local art scene. They have beautiful collections from the Bangko Sentral and private collectors.

The museum itself was clean and roomy. The spacious halls were well-ventilated and the staff were nice and alert. Bathrooms were clean as well.

And please, DON'T TOUCH THE ART! 128548

Adios! 128109

It was International Museum Day and most of the museums around the Metro opened its doors for free. And god forbid we went crazy on which museum to visit since we only have few hours to spare. So we decided to go another museum I always wanted to go to! Metropolitan Museum. It houses different artworks from the Classic up to Modern and Contemporary. Beneath the museum was the Museo of the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and it has all the antique and primeval gold and items. 128515128515128515128515128515128515128515128515

Yesterday, mom, I and Jas L went to the MET museum since there was part of the gallery that was until Oct 4.

When getting inside the place, it was beautiful !! You can see different arts in different forms. These are the type of artworks I believe this generation will appreciate. Also, looking at the other pictures, there are some hidden meanings just as we compared it to the ones in Pinto Art Museum.

Entrance fee costs 100. It is not bad when you actually think about it. I believe people in this generation should visit this museum for them to appreciate art. For sure im coming back 128076
