  • Tour the Presidential Museum Virtually on Google Arts & Culture
  • After opening the doors of the Presidential Museum and Library (PML) to visitors at no cost, the Palace has recently extended the access to the whole world through Google Arts & Culture online.

    We’ve tried it, and it was a worthwhile tour.

    Through the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO), PML collaborated with Google to let people from anywhere in the country and around the world access the Palace’s invaluable exhibits, artifacts, and architecture through an online immersive exhibition. This is a part of President Rodrigo Duterte’s mandate to make Malacañan Palace accessible to everyone.

    Through Google Arts & Culture, online visitors can read about the history of Malacañan Palace and, in a Google Street View style, explore two curated exhibits that highlight valuable items and other memorabilia from the past administrations up to the current one.

    You can also zoom in and take a closer look at certain displays.

    The “Malacañang as Prize, Pulpit, and Stage” exhibit presents the Palace as more than just the official residence of the President of the Philippines.

    The “Relics of Power: Remembering the Philippine Presidents” exhibit lets you see through historical artifacts and artworks the legacies of the country’s past and current presidents.

    Wherever you are, you can virtually visit the Malacañang Presidential Museum and Library through the Google Arts & Culture site or via the mobile app available for Android and iOS.
