THE CCP MUSEUM
The Museo ng Kalinangang Pilipino is an integrated humanities museum established in 1988. It gathers together the works of Filipino traditional artists and preserves Filipino artistic traditions; studies and interprets these to provide a deeper understanding of Filipino national culture evolving with and for the people; and strengthens the people’s awareness of the integral, dynamic role of creativity and artistic expression in national life and culture.
A permanent exhibit entitled “Diwa: Buhay, Ritwal at Sining” showcases significant Filipino artistic traditions and explores the development of Philippine art and aesthetics in the socio-cultural context. Another important permanent exhibit is the CCP Collection of Traditional Asian Musical Instruments from the Philippines, Japan, Indonesia, India, Thailand, China and Korea. The CCP Museum also presents special changing exhibitions, provides curatorial assistance, and organizes workshops on indigenous art forms.
The Museo ng Kalinangang Pilipino is currently being re-developed and will be-launched in 2019 in time for the CCP's 50th Anniversary
