Our local museums and art galleries are getting a lot of attention these past years; Millennials rekindling their field trip days? Maybe. Heightened appreciation for art and history? Hopefully. But the real tea is a lot of  museums and art galleries are now seen as Instagram-friendly. And that’s not bad at all, so as long as everyone follows the museum etiquette.


Today’s social media-driven society has also paved way to unique places that demand not only to be visited, but to be photographed, too. And Manila is filled with those! Here are museums and galleries to visit to give life to your feed:


The Dessert Museum


Conrad Hotel Manila, Mall of Asia Complex Pasay
Monday to Sunday (10 a.m. to 10 p.m.)


If you’re looking for a specific color scheme for your posts, The Dessert Museum is probably the place to get you started with your ‘curating’ journey. The place is filled with pastels as well as sweets treats to match. Get your feed a taste of sweet-themed aesthetic!

Art in Island


175 15th Ave. Cubao, Quezon City

3D art museums such as Art In Island can definitely give you unique photos for your IG feed. The place is filled with illusions and art that challenge your creativity and perspective.

The Book Museum Cum Ethnology Center


127, SE Dao, Marikina
Mondays to Sundays (9 p.m. to 5 p.m.)


This one's for the hardcore book lovers. The Book Museum Cum Ethnology Center holds some of the world’s rarest book artifacts and some from our own. For this location, you could pose inside the museum itself with its white shelves as your background. (don’t just pose though, read and appreciate books)

Upside Down Museum


Boom Na Boom Grounds CCP Complex, Roxas Blvd, Pasay
Tuesdays to Sundays (11 a.m. to 9 p.m.)


Upside Down Museum is another 3D museum that lets you interact and play around with the displays. If you can’t get those double-taps right side up maybe doing the opposite can!

Yexel’s Toy Museum


52 Sampaguita Rd, Las Pinas
Wednesdays (closed on Thursday) to Sundays (12 p.m. to 7 p.m.)


Whether you’re young, adulting or old enough to know better the charm of toys wouldn’t leave you especially if gathered in one big museum. Yexel’s Toy Museum is a four-story building that houses palm size toy collections to life-sized ones. If you’d ask us we’d pose and hang around the Iron Throne and Valar Morghulis everyone.

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar


Brgy. Ibaba, Bagac, Bataan 2107
Mondays to Sundays


If you seek to go back in time then this open-air museum and heritage park in Bagac, Bataan might suit you. Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar features a collection of houses dated back in the Spanish-colonial era reassembled and restored. Las Casas also just transported its charm in Quezon city should you need a quick movie-esque experience, you might need to make a reservation though.

Pinto Art Museum


1 Sierra Madre St, Grand Heights Rd., Antipolo City
Tuesdays to Sundays (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.)


If you're going to Pinto Art Museum for the photos, you're missing half the experience. The place is filled with contemporary and out-of-the-box arts that artistically make sense. While no photo should be left unposted and undeciphered, no art should also be left unappreciated when taken at Pinto Art Museum.

Be it may a rekindled love for museums or doing it just “for the ‘gram’” this only proves that art and history are not just for the books no longer. Let’s support our local museums in any way we can. Happy Museums and Galleries Month!
