It provides a good general overview of the people and culture of the Philippines. Plus it's free, central, quiet and has great AC.

I liked the exhibits of the musical instruments of the indigenous people.

You may likely have this museum all to yourself, which was fine by me. There's plenty to see and contemplate here, including ancient pottery/funeral urns discovered many years ago in a cave. Who made them is still virtually unknown. Other exhibits and artifacts include a room devoted to rice and its cultivation (I had no idea there were so many varieties, but as a staple crop, it's essential), native art, elements of a Spanish galleon and an island-hopping boat made without nails. It's free and easily accessible. I enjoy museums because they can provide context for unfamiliar places. This one did just that.

Enjoy the museum. There's no entrance fee. You need to have your bags check in at their counter. This is up to 4th floor. Each room is air conditioned

This is one of 3 museums close to Rizal Park. One is labelled the "National Museum" which is the national art gallery, the other is the Museum of Natural Science, and this, I gather is now called the National Museum of Anthropology. I spend over 3 hours inside. Admission is free to all 3 museums thanks to President Dutarte. 3 floors of exhibits mostly ethnological. So informative. The Philippines have such a rich and varied cultural history and this museum helps so much in showcasing this. A must-see.

Tidy, interesting, free museum. Would recommend to others. Floors are a bit to clean you glide across the floor
