Another Museum, another adventure! Remember I posted about Mind Museum just last month? This time we went to Yuchengco Museum. It’s quite exciting to do this once in a while. Yunchengco Museum, the name suggests who owns this structure. The Yuchengcos are one of the most influential families here in the Philippines and I was not surprised how they are linked to the country’s history. From the time of the Spaniards up to the present, their name has been in the limelight as one of the richest families in the country. They are even connected to our national hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal.
Anyhoo, Pao and I had a quick escape here after we had our photo shoot at the Ayala triangle. (If you have noticed I have the same outfit from this post, --- it was taken the same day.) The place is wonderful. Its galleries are on different levels and you have to take a semicircular staircase to get to the next floor (you may use the elevator too). During our visit, what caught my attention is the works by Salvador Juban, Botong’s apprentice which is the levitating stones. It’s magical! Other exhibits are paintings, sculptures and furniture by our local designers and artists. *sigh I thought we took enough photos (-.-), but were not able to take photos of paintings and other artworks because we were too busy wandering around the place. I suggest you should see it yourself.
