THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES
PLANETARIUM

Rizal Park between the Japanese Garden and Chinese Garden on Padre Burgos Avenue, Ermita
Written By Aubrey Whymark 2010-2017
I visited the National Museum Planetarium in 2010. I think I am long overdue a second visit as the planetarium has recently been renovated, re-opening in 2017. Located in the Rizal Park Complex at Padre Burgos St., Manila, the Planetarium has a small tektite display with tektites from different parts of Luzon, Borneo and Australia donated by Prof. Henry Otley Beyer of the Anthropology Division in the University of the Philippines.

No photography is allowed, but here you go!

The National Museum Planetarium opened in 1975. It has recently undergone a major renovation and re-opened on March 24, 2017.
