National Museum PH Presents Día de Los Muertos Exhibition This November
It’s not too late to celebrate the Day of the Dead as the National Museum of the Philippines, in collaboration with the Embassy of the Republic of Mexico, invites you to Día de Los Muertos: Traditional Mexican Ofrenda and Photo Exhibition.
Opening on November 6 to 17, 2019 at the National Museum of Fine Arts, the exhibit will feature installations showing interesting facts about the Mexican holiday Día de Los Muertos or the Day of the Dead.
The Day of the Dead is a widely celebrated holiday throughout Mexico held every 1st of November for more than 3,000 years now. It is recognized all over the world because of its festive heritage.
In fact, it is quite similar to how Filipinos celebrate Undas or All Saints’ Day.
At the #NationalMuseumPH, we understand that returning from a long weekend can be quite a challenge. To take the edge…
Aside from the exhibit, a delightful program will also take place during the event, wherein guests will learn a thing or two about the similarities of Filipino’s Undas tradition and Mexican’s Día de Los Muertos.
