Lakbay Museo : Travel Around Philippines in Two Hours!!!

Last month, my birthday month, I brought my family to a memorable and exciting experience. I chose to visit a museum because I believe its importance, which is to "strengthen the foundation of the family". It's also an ideal place to learn and explore the country's cultural and natural heritage.

Good thing! There is Lakbay Museo in the metro, which offers a unique concept and experience.



» Lakbay Museo «

Lakbay Museo is a newly opened Philippine-themed interactive museum, which offers 14 unique Filipino experiences in 11 destinations within Philippines. Owned by the makers of Dessert Museum Manila and Happy Beach Cebu, they put an attraction that caters Filipino heritage, festivals and exhibits from Luzon to Visayas and to Mindanao in just 2 hours.



» Booking Procedure «

You can book this attraction online (on their website), which costs Php 699 for weekday rate and Php 799 for weekend rate. You can also drop by and walk-in, which costs Php 799. It is also available online via Klook and Metrodeal, which costs both Php 599. And also in Travelbook, which costs Php 595.

Take note that children ages 0 to 2 may enter free of charge. The facility is also wheelchair and stroller accessible.



The admission ticket comes with 12 chips, which you can use to buy different goodies or food inside the museum. You can also purchase additional chips on site for a certain price.

After you redeem the admission ticket with chips, you will be given a Filipino sarong, which you will wear in the whole duration of your visit. 



To enter the main facility, you have to give 3 tokens and choose between the three portals: pass through a jeepney, slide from an aeroplane  or step into a vinta.

After sliding from an aeroplane, we also took photo-ops inside the jeepney because it's one of the main attractions.



As we arrived inside, there's a mini village with sari-sari stores around the corners selling Filipino products all around the Philippines.




After the photo-ops, we head straight to the one of the highlights: the Filipino cultural show! The staffs performed Filipino traditional dances wearing indigenous attires, which took around 15-20 minutes. They would invite guests to dance with them, which I also participated in a short while.



After the performances, we stroll around the area featuring Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

» Overall «

I love their unique concept, which promotes Filipino tradition and culture. I also awe about their vision to raise environmental awareness. We noticed that most of the displays were from recycled materials.

It's also a great bonding for families and child-at-heart. I recommend it to everyone.
