International Museum Day @ Yuchengco Museum

May 18 is International Museum Day. For the past couple of years, we haven’t been able to visit any museums on this day but this year, we took advantage of the free entrance in celebration to this day.

We went to Yuchengco Museum in Makati City. We have been to Yuchengco a few years back but the children were quite young and don’t remember much from that trip.

From our recent trip, I learned that it is important to take our children to museums from time to time, even if it is the same museum. Here are some reasons:

  1. The perception of the children changes through the years. The way they think and appreciate art and history differs depending on their age.
  2. Museums give our children a glimpse of the past and give them opportunities to reflect on the past and the present and how the future could look like.
  3. Museum trips present an opportunity for our children to know that there is more to life than themselves. In our self-absorbed world, it is crucial to let our children know that they are a part of a big world and all that is happening around us.

    Here are some photos of our favorite paintings from the gallery.

There are many more museums that we should visit as a family and I am looking forward to more field trips with the family!
