The National Museum of the Philippines (NMP) brings to Bohol the travelling exhibition, “Conserving the Natural History of the Visayas Region”.

The temporary exhibition was made possible through the Mobile Museum Boxes Project, a collaborative project of the NMP, Forest Foundation Philippines and the Western Visayas Association of Museums.

The project features a travelling exhibition kit mounted in boxes. This allows for the exhibition to be set-up quickly and easily in different venues outside the walls of a conventional museum.

The boxes contain collections of specimens and artifacts equipped with information to provide an object-based educational opportunity to new audiences.

The Mobile Museum Boxes Project aims to extend the museum’s reach, bringing collections and producing new exhibitions in various places to enhance the knowledge and awareness of the viewers.

The exhibition showcases twelve (12) boxes of five (5) categories: terrestrial plants, terrestrial animals, aquatic organisms, forest products and geology.

The Mobile Museum Boxes exhibition can be viewed at Gallery 5, on the 2nd floor of the National Museum Bohol (former Bohol Provincial Capitol Building).

The exhibition will open on November 4, 2021, in time for the celebration of President Carlos P. Garcia’s 125th Birth Anniversary.

The exhibition will run until Dec. 31, 2021 and will move to Iloilo in January 2022.

Aside from the temporary exhibition, the #NationalMuseumBohol has permanent exhibitions, particularly the Natural History of Bohol Gallery Exhibition which features Bohol’s unique geology, flora and fauna; the Pagbanhaw Gallery Exhibition which highlights the story of Christianity in Bohol, it’s built heritage, the destruction caused by the 2013 Bohol Earthquake and the restoration, reconstruction and conservation of these heritage structures along with its priceless collections under the helm of the the National Museum of the Philippines.

The National Museum Bohol is open to the public Tuesdays to Sundays, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 nn. and 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. For more information, you may check the National Museum Bohol facebook page or call us at 09190779851 or (038) 501-9166.
