The three sites are now open from Tuesday to Sunday every 9 a.m.-12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the afternoon.

Since The National Museum of the Philippines established strict health protocols, only those who are aged 15 to 65 years old are allowed to enter the premises so don’t forget to bring a valid I.D. when going to the museum.
Visitors should also wear face shields and face masks at all times while practicing social distancing. Upon entering, temperatures will be checked and a health declaration form should be filled up by the visitor.
Currently, the National Planetarium remains closed to the public.
