It’s happening sooner than we expected—our own Museum of Natural History will be opening its doors in mid-2017 in the former Department of Tourism Building within the vicinity of Rizal Park in Manila. This museum, which will house the Philippines’ flora and fauna, will be operated by the National Museum of the Philippines. The museum was awarded P1 billion for the conversion of the Neoclassic DOT building, which was built in 1930s-1941 by architect Antonio Toledo as the original Department of Agriculture building. 

The Museum of Natural History will finally complete the trio of museums run by the National Museum of the Philippines, which includes the National Gallery of Art in the former Senate building, and the Museum of the Filipino People in the former Finance building, all near Agrifina Circle in Manila.
