National Treasures

Learn about the stories—and even intrigues—of some of the most precious art pieces in the Philippines.

National Treasures

Our signature tour of the Philippine National Museum of Fine Arts! A tour for art and history lovers alike, the National Treasures tour will let you experience Philippine history and culture through art like never before. Explore every masterful brushstroke and learn about the stories—and even intrigues—of some of the most precious art pieces in the Philippines.

This program will immerse you in tales of the Philippines’ vast artistic heritage as you weave yourselves into the stories of our national art treasures.

This tour largely focuses on the works of the National Artists of the Philippines with a particular emphasis on the tumultuous life of the incomparable Juan Luna y Novicio himself. Through his amazing masterpieces, we will trace his life and career beginning from his meteoric rise to stardom in the saloons of high society in 19th century Paris to his equally swift fall from grace after he kills his wife and mother-in-law in a fit of murderous rage and passion.

It’s a tragedy filled with love, life, laughter, and scandal for good measure. Book a tour today and find out more!
