Lakbay Museo is a newly-opened interactive museum in Pasay City that offers Instagram-worthy displays and interactive stations that showcase the best of the Philippines. To date, it has 14 unique experiences for 14 different destinations that offer visitors the chance to feel as though they traveled to Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao’s colorful history and rich culinary heritage.

Filipinos and foreigners can visit these museums for FREE; however, visitors would have to pay if they want to watch the planetarium shows (Php50 for regular viewers, Php30 for students, and Php40 for PWD and senior citizens.) The best time to visit these museums is during weekdays where it’s less crowded.
Once you arrive at Lakbay Museo, you can dress up in authentic hand-woven designs and fabrics. Afterward, there will be three ways to “enter” the museum: take a jeep, a Vinta (traditional outrigger boat from Mindanao), or an airplane that shows how you can travel around the Philippines — essentially, by water, land, and air.
The National Museum Complex is located along Kalaw Street in Manila. The easiest way to go here if you prefer to commute is by riding the LRT line-1 train. Just alight at UN Avenue station since it is the nearest train station; after that, you’ll just have to walk a few minutes from there to reach the National Museum.
There are several ways to enjoy the sights of Intramuros — whether you just walk within the cobblestone streets, join an interactive Intramuros tour (or a tour with a famous personality: Carlos Celdran), ride a kalesa (horse-drawn carriage) or try the newest Bambike Ecotours.
