CEBU CITY, Philippines – Museums help nurture the identity of a nation.

It acts as a custodian of culture as it also helps in the preservation of the works of arts and artifacts of life that come from different periods in our country’s history.

Last Friday, July 28, 2023, Cebuanos witnessed the inauguration of the 18th regional museum of the National Museum of the Philippines (NMP) at the old Customs House located near Plaza Independencia in Cebu City.

In the gathering, NMP Board of Trustees Chairman Andoni Aboitiz said that the historical building would serve as a “temple” not just for the Cebuanos but for the rest of the Filipinos.

Aboitiz meant temples of learning, priceless art, one’s past, ideas, and soul.

He said that NM Cebu was a place were locals and guests could learn about the rich culture and history of Cebu and the Philippines.
