International Museum Day! Check out These No Admission Fee Art Galleries

In dictionaries, Museums are defined as “places of study, buildings where objects of historical, scientific or artistic interest are kept, preserved and exhibited.”

Filipinos love any forms of artwork may it be performing arts, literature, painting, etc. However most museums have not-budget-friendly admission fee. The main reason why Pinoys are in doubt of a fun-learning experience inside an art gallery.
