In the run up to the 120th year of the National Museum of the Philippines (NMP) and while we continue to celebrate the Civil Service Month, our new website is going to be launched on September 27 at 10 am. This will provide better access to our collections, exhibitions, and services – an important consideration in the time of the pandemic.
The new website hopes to strengthen the relationship of the museum with its communities, especially those who have limited access to our facilities brought about by closure due to health protocols or physical limitations. We intend it to be a reliable online information resource site that can serve the needs and interest of fellow government employees, and its varied audiences, locally, nationally, and globally.
Some of its salient features are views to exhibitions in video format or 360 virtual tours, highlights to collections in our care, news and events, job opportunities in our museum and downloadable forms.
After years of planning, developing, and designing a new website that is content-driven, visually appealing, and interface-friendly, the Museum deems it timely to launch a more compelling website to the public. The global health crisis carried imposing challenges and changes in the way cultural institutions perform. For the NMP, these challenges provided an opportunity to step back and figure out how best we can communicate to museum audiences.
The new website is set to be launched online on September 27, 2021, Monday, at 10:00 am via Zoom Application and YouTube livestream. To join the launch, kindly fill up this NMP Google Form. Please indicate your name and media institution/outfit and/or company.
