Revisited and Examined [May 2011]
This is NOT a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.
A long overdue post, photo blog session with Ranelle Dial and little Drei, using a compact digital camera. 🙂
Note that in 2011 this website is still under deiville.info (in 2012 I re-branded it to DeiVille.com) hence all the images from this blog post with (dot)info watermarks are all owned by yours truly.
About National Museum
“The National Museum of the Philippines is the official repository established in 1901 as a natural history and ethnography museum of the Philippines. It is located next to Rizal Park and near Intramuros in Manila. Its main building was designed in 1918 by an American architect Daniel Burnham. Today, that building, the former home of the Congress of the Philippines, holds the National Art Gallery, natural sciences and other support divisions.
The adjacent building in the Agrifina Circle of Rizal Park, formerly housing the Department of Finance, houses the Anthropology and Archaeology Divisions and is known as the Museum of the Filipino People.” – friendly Wiki
