The National Museum of Natural History is the third building which completes the National Museum Complex in Manila along with the National Museum of Fine Arts and the National Museum of Anthropology. The new museum will showcase the country’s rich biodiversity and wide variety of flora and fauna, interactive activities and models, life-size replica of “Lolong the crocodile”, and many more.

Admission would be free of charge to all visitors as the National Museum of the Philippines declared in 2016 that entrance to its museums nationwide would be permanently free “…in order to build upon significant spikes in viewership, especially among younger Filipinos”.

Here are some things we could all look forward to see in May:
