Heads up museum goers! This newest attraction in Intramuros might be just for you and for your family!

It's called Centro de Turismo Intramuros and according to Darlene Cay's Balintanghali report on Monday, the interactive museum will open its door to the public for free on Independence Day, June 12.

“The intention is to go back to our roots, learn the history of Intramuros,” Atty. Joan Padilla, the Executive Director of the Intramuros Administration said.

Upon entering, visitors will be welcomed by the stunning sculpture of renowned Filipino visual artist Leeroy New, which features the artistic representation of the Galleon, the ship which was used during the Galleon Trade in Manila.

The museum also features old artifacts and religious icons. Visitors can scan the QR code provided in every artifact in the museum and watch educational videos about history while touring around, but for better understanding of Philippine history, a guided tour is also available to the visitors.

Located in the old San Ignacio Church, which was destroyed during World War II, Centro will be open every from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

After their Centro tour, visitors can also stop by the nearby Museo de Intramuros (P75) which was a part of the old convent of the Jesuits. There, visitors will be able to see some of the original structure of the convent, various artifacts, paintings, and collection of religious icons.
