    Trixia Salonga

    Hi! I'm Trixia and welcome to my slice of life. I'm not your average blogger, I'm a hybrid of multi-dimensional shoujo, a rare breed of legal loli and a unique original producer of ideas and inspiration. My path goes on the other side of the road which is less traveled, where thrill and excitement rests. This blog holds my inner thoughts, experiences, opinions and out-of-the-ordinary theories which I keep as a journal of my life's highlights. Contact me at reshadaseamaiden@gmail.com for collaboration



    Lately, I have a hang-over of the greatest fight in the north of GOT and being invited over to a museum full of history was by far the best feeling to appreciate that we have past similar to theirs, less the dragons, I guess.

    The coolest part of our history is that our very own countrymen, Filipinos which were referred as Indios at that time, have carved their own interpretations of God, The Holy Family, the saints which in their coming from their own creativity preserved a timeline wherein Catholicism was introduced.

    Entrance Fee:

    Free for 6 months starting May 2, 2019

    Location:

    Corner Arzobispo and Anda Streets, Intramuros, Manila (beside the Arzobispado de Manila)

    Operating hours:

    Tuesdays to Fridays, 9:00 am - 5:00pm
    Fully Airconditioned with restrooms

    We were near the site as early as 9:00 am because we had to cover a shoot hours before and waited till the opening of the museum.

    It was a short walk from Manila Cathedral where we passed by, from where I first saw it was from the side, still unpainted, which I thought was the entrance but there actual entrance on the other side.



    First Floor highlights

    Once inside, we were greeted by the carved statue and a signing table on the side. The first floor doors open up and a bright room with all the historical pieces are displayed.

    The museum's current in-house exhibition presents the story of evangelization of the Philippines from the Perspective of the Filipinos.





    1). Imagenes / Indigena and Imaculate Conception room

    At my back are the carved depictions of women with inspirations from virgin mary.

    When the Spaniards came, they were in shock with Indio women because they were bare-breasted and they had no manners, so they set up a model for the women to emulate, and the best role model is none other than Immaculate Conception or the Virgin Mary.




    2. The Religious Order

    These carved wooden statues from different interpretations of God and saints.









    3. The Patronato Real and the Establishment of Parishes


    Laid at the floor are pieces which helped Filipinos learn how to combine each piece some which are used for altars.








    A water reservoir during the Spanish era preserved.


    An undiscovered area which is a mystery to the public. Just look at how eery that look like.

    Second Floor Highlights

    4. The Indio response


    What I like the second floor is that there were stunning displays which clearly used by the churches, shiny pieces that seem to tantalize and dozens of carving interpretations of God and The Holy family.
    The museum is located in two important reconstructions inside the walled city:

    The San Ignacio Church and The Mission House of the Society of Jesus


    5. Religious Colonial Paintings and
    6. Establishment of a Parish and Sacred Vessels.

    A magnificent display of the Eucharist and Virgin Mary, the intrinsic designs that gives of baroque vibe can still be appreciated even with a silver medium.

    These Sacred Vessels does give that GOT feels but these silversmiths were made by firstly Chinese, then eventually Filipinos learned to do them.



    Third Floor highlights

    The third floor consists of a cute miniature replica of Churches and Spanish houses. If you'll check closely some are made with the tiniest detail, if you love miniatures, this is one floor that you'd like to visit.



    If you move further to the side they have a room which has a projector showing films about the museum.


    Also on the third floor, you'll see small bones of animals and porcelain Chinese pieces full of history and the one souvenir and future plans for a historical mall and cafe about to emerge. They also have a map of Intramuros and so.


    You've got to check this future mall and cafe, they plan it to harmonize with the historical pieces in their accent. So it's like a mall museum cafe!

    I've enjoyed every bit of history that I've seen in fact it reminded me of my purpose and inspiration. If you've visited Intramuros, come check the place out!
