The Grand Tour of the National Museum with John Silva

Sometimes a painting needs a dash of insight

Works of art are appreciated by their own merits. But Oftentimes a painting or a sculpture has a story that adds to its worth. Or a brushstroke, almost imperceptible, that needs pointing out, and
expanding a painting's dimension.

John L. Silva's renowned three-hour tour of the National Museum's paintings and sculpture collection incorporates history, interpretation, and even a little humor.

Get to know the Philippines from as far back as 40,000 years ago through its fascinating archeological artifacts from stone-age tools to exquisite textiles.

Understanding the country today with its colonial period collection from Spanish ware to American architectural influence on the two buildings housing the National Museum.

All tours begin at the rear entrance of the Museum of the Filipino People (formerly the Finance Building) located on Finance Road and fronting Rizal Park. Tour covers two buildings and over 20 galleries.

Come and discover a fascinating Philippine past. It will astound you.
