RIZALizing the Future

3 & 4/F Galleries
Opening June 3

Have we lived up to the vision our National Hero, Jose Rizal,
set out for us? In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Rizal's birth and the 100th anniversary of the Yuchengco Group of Companies (YGC), the museum presents the major exhibit RIZALizing the Future.

Opening June 3, the exhibit looks at Rizal's reach through time, as seen in our culture and landscape. RIZALizing also challenges visitors to imbibe and carry on Rizal's spirit. The exhibit draws on varied Rizaliana collections, and includes letters, photographs, and artifacts. RIZALizing the Future will run until October 29.
