Philippine Army Museum | Things to do in Taguig City-Metro Manila

Philippine Army Museum Philippine Army Museum Philippine Army Museum Philippine Army Museum Philippine Army Museum Philippine Army Museum
Six imposing army trucks and tanks stand sentinel outside the Philippine Army Museum. Along with a range of artilleries, the open-air exhibit is a striking prelude to the two-storey museum inside. The museum keeps seven small galleries, the highlight of which is the Diorama gallery on the second floor.

The Diorama gallery is a life-sized representation of five of the most important events that shaped the Philippine Army's history. The five scenes are depicted in realistic wooden figures, staged in winding hallways that are spare, compact, and dark in some sections, lending an air of a military outpost. The dioramas chronicle milestones in the nation's struggle for freedom against foreign colonizers--from enlistment to the Sandatahan during the Katipunan, to the Liberation of Manila in 1945.

Founded in 1976, the Philippine Army Museum aims to record and preserve the history of the Philippine Army and its achievements. 
Open: Weekdays, 9am - 12pm, 1:30pm - 4pm; Weekends, by appointment. Closed during holidays.
Address: Philippine Army Headquarters, Gate 2, Lawton Ave., Fort Bonifacio , Taguig City, Metro Manila
Fee: P20.00
