National Art Gallery

87 Comments
One of the things that I've listed in my summer 2016 list is to visit Philippines' National Museum. It's not really far from where I live because it only takes one bus and taxi ride to get there. My cousins and I were planning to go here like since last year (hahaha!) but whenever everything is planned already something crazy happens thus, leading to change of plans. Thankfully, this plan came into a reality one Sunday morning and just like that, the whole National Museum tour thing happened! 
I've always loved art in all forms- may it be music, paintings, architectures, photography and literature. After we roamed the whole museum, all I can say is that "How I wish I was blessed with artistic talents." I was amazed by the little details this grand National Gallery has- every corner, every ceiling, every room was beautiful and historical. I admire every painting and sculpture displayed but most especially my fellow countrymen behind these artworks. I never imagined that there were lots of  beautiful pieces this place has to offer and I appreciate everything that I saw. My favorites are the Spolarium which greeted us when we entered the gallery, the grand Old Session Hall, Gallery V containing the works that honor Jose Rizal, MFP Hall and the majestic spiral staircases. It seemed like I was attending a live History class during the whole tour. We only went to one building out of four but I felt that I've seen enough already. Allotting some hours to visit this museum wouldn't hurt so if you're around the area I suggest you to visit it and experience history first-hand. I'm leaving it all here. I hope you'll enjoy and be inspired by these pictures that I captured. :)

PS. For those who are asking, I have a snapchat account but I don't update it.
