The National Museum is tasked with the preservation, conservation and protection of movable and immovable cultural properties for the safekeeping and for the enjoyment by present and future generations. To accomplish this, the National Museum offers publications, exhibitions, library services, seminar/workshops, and others.
The National Museum has three major goals covering diverse fields of knowledge through various educational, scientific and cultural programs and projects. As an educational institution, the National Museum disseminates scientific and technical knowledge in more understandable and practical forms through lectures, exhibitions, interviews and publications for students and the general public. As a scientific organization, it conducts basic research programs combining integrated laboratory and field work in anthropology, archaeology, botany and zoology. It maintains reference collections on these disciplines to promote scientific studies in the Philippines. As a cultural center, the National Museum has taken the lead in the study and preservation of the nation’s rich artistic, historic, and cultural heritage.
