If you’re looking for something interesting to visit, The National Planetarium, which is maintained by the The National Museum of the Philippines, is offering free admission for the entire month of May in celebration of National Heritage Month.
It’s definitely worth to making the trip to the busy heart of Manila, as the Planetarium has recently been upgraded with new facilities, including a new hybrid projector which combines its original projector with one that’s digital.
In an interview with CNN Philippines, Central Museum Visitor Operations Division Chief Ma. Belen Pabuan shares that the installation of the new projector will give visitors more intricate and detailed shows.
“Because it was already combined with the manual, so meron siyang feature na mas detailed yung stars—unlike yung digital lang hindi masyadong detailed yung pointed stars.”
Starting, you can now enjoy shows such as Journey to a Billion suns, A Planet for Goldilocks, and Hayabusa.
The National Planetarium is open from Tuesdays to Sundays. For inquiries, call (02) 527-7889.
