Reopening its Doors to the Public

After almost two months of closure, the National Museum of the Philippines-Bicol (NMP-Bicol) reopens its doors to the public on August 8.

The museum in Albay, Legazpi, showcases furnished indoor and outdoor exhibitions that display the unique geological landscapes and history of Bicol—all to elevate and enhance your knowledge and appreciation of the region and its wonders.

Exhibitions of earthly and telluric beauty

Indoor Display

The indoor display, Bicolandia: Land of Volcanoes, includes four permanent galleries with artistic collections of botanical, zoological, and geological specimens representing the region’s unique natural history.

It features important geological structures from the active volcano Mt. Mayon, landforms, rocks, fossils, plants, and animals. The exhibit showcases the local volcanoes so visitors and children can learn more about how these lava mountains were created.

Outdoor Exhibition

On the other hand, the outdoor exhibition features a rock garden of volcanic rocks, a butterfly garden, a nursery of endemic plants in Bicol, and a viewing deck for stargazing at night with an alternative view of the Mayon volcano.

With the butterfly garden’s propagation operations, the visitors’ appreciation of nature will undoubtedly be deeper.

The museum is open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays to Sundays. Admission is free, and walk-ins are accepted. You can reach out to them through the museum’s social media and send them a private message before your visit.

NMP-Bicol is one of the 18 NMP-run museums outside the National Capital Region (NCR). On June 9, 2023, NMP-Bicol temporarily closed its indoor and outdoor exhibitions due to the unrest of Mayon Volcano, but is now available to local and foreign tourists visiting Albay to experience the natural history museum with indoor and outdoor exhibitions about the natural heritage of Bicol.
