January 31, 2018

Senator Loren Legarda enjoins the public to watch the fifth episode of Dayaw Season 4 – Vessels of Culture, showcasing Philippine museums as “vessels” of Filipino history, culture, and arts.

Episode 5 titled, “A Treasure Trove of Museums,” will feature various museums in the metro, such as the National Museum, Ayala Museum, Lopez Museum, San Agustin Museum, and the much-anticipated Museo de Intramuros; as well as in the provinces, such as the Museo Ilocos Norte and the Taoid Museum both in Laoag, and the Bencab Museum and the Museo Kordilyera in Baguio.

It will be aired on Thursday, February 1, 6:30pm, on the ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC), with livestreaming on and on ANC’s Facebook page.

“Museums are vessels in such a way that they house our historical, scientific, artistic, and cultural artifacts and treasures for everyone to appreciate, study, and understand. They are repositories of the people’s skills, talents, knowledge, and ways of life in the past that we need to preserve and pass on to future generations. Museums are the best place to start for anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge and interest on our history, culture, and arts,” Legarda said.

“The fifth episode of Dayaw features this significant role of our museums, as vessels, in documenting our past, while informing and educating our future. Let us witness and experience the story of our nation, unraveled and told through our museums,” she added.
