October is Museums and Galleries Month!
History should not repeat itself and should always be remembered. Museums and galleries serve as the home of memories that will narrate stories and events from the past. They are a dedicated space for the works of many artists, inventions of our scientists, discoveries and findings of archeologists, and specimens such as fossils and artifacts from antiquity.
In our country, the University of Santo Tomas Museum was considered the oldest existing museum in the Philippines, was formally established in 1869, to comply with the 1865 Reglamento de Segunda Ensenanza that required all first-class colleges to have a Museo de Historia Natural. Initially located in Intramuros, the UST Museum was later transferred to its present site at the paraninfo of the UST Main Building, built in 1928 in the Sampaloc district of Manila.
Moreover, The Institute for Climate Change and Environmental Management (ICCEM) of Central Luzon State University also has a museum. A natural history and biodiversity museum dedicated to different ecosystems in the Philippines. In celebration of #MGM2022, the institute will re-launch the newly renovated The ICCEM Museum (TIM) in the 4th quarter of 2022.
This year' #MGM2022 theme "Embracing Uncertainty: Showcasing Solidarity, Hope, and Recovery" honors the resilience and resourcefulness of the Filipino in overcoming the global pandemic as it moves forward to a new normal.
