What's your excuse for not visiting a museum lately?

In case you haven’t heard yet, going to the museum can actually be therapeutic. That’s on top of the fact that being exposed to this kind of things broadens our perspectives, and enriches our knowledge of our very own histories.
In fact, access to places displaying our rich culture is short of becoming a human right. It can be argued that since museums are technically educational spaces, then access to such should be free for all under Article XIV of the constitution.
And the good news is, most of our history museums, in fact, offer free admissions. A recent post by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines on Facebook lists down 26 of such located all over the country which you can go to from Tuesday to Sunday, 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m.
