A Day at the National Museum of Natural History + Underwater World via #LGOLEDWallpaperTV
I became a museum girl when I started exploring places. Back when I was in school, I only see a museum day or museum trip as a sidetrip to explore other things outside school (those were the days when parents were so strict)
I am always up for adventures, but I am okay for slow walks around alleys of artifacts and national treasures. I always find it fascinating how museums preserve history and tell stories of one’s place and its people.
I got the chance to visit the newly renovated National Museum of Natural History in Rizal Park, in Manila. I have been meaning to visit the place since it was re-opened in May after its renovation. But you know how we tend to dismiss the idea of visiting (touristy) places near us.
Here are some photos I took during my solo tour. The National Museum of Natural History is closed on a Monday, but we got an exclusive access and invitation to tour the museum before the launch event by LG Philippines event.

You can look but do not touch
This reminds me of the Bone Museum we visited in Davao
This is my favorite room in the museum
Lolong is the longest crocodile held in captivity
Love this gallery too!
I love how the stunning interiors and architectures of the newly renovated National Museum of Natural History. The Museum includes 10 galleries featuring plants, animals and fungi that are only seen in our country.
