  • The Museum of the Filipino people is placed on three floors. White neoclassical façade of the building is accessed by climbing the stairs overlooking the South side of Rizal park. Admission is free and you have to leave the bags in the cloakroom but you can take pictures. On the main floor are exposed some of the thousands of artifacts recovered from the ship San Diego, sunk in the year 1600 during a battle between the Spanish and the Dutch. Unlike the ship Wasa, which in Stockholm has been brought back to the surface, for the San Diego has not yet been possible to recover the hull. The exhibits are interesting and show the Interior of a ship of that kind. On the upper floors there are exhibits of handicrafts of the various ethnic groups of the Philippines. Then textiles, musical instruments, wood carvings, baskets and clothes. Interesting the room dedicated to the winners of an award given to those shown to have recovered some musical or craftsmanship.
