Free Entrance to the National Museum of the Philippines

The National Museum of the Philippines is  entrance - free for the whole month of October because of the celebration of Museum and Galleries Month.  This includes all the 14 branches and their flagship museums in Manila:  the National Art Gallery (former Old Legislative Building), Museum of the Filipino People (former Old Finance Building), and National Planetarium. During regular days the entrance fee visiting here costs P150.00 for adults.  When I went there earlier this year, I am enthralled to see Juan Luna's paintings especially the "Spoliarium" and also a lot of wrecks from sunken ships. But I notice there are a lot of vacant slots in the museum that could have been used to add more stuff of historical value and also a touch of modern technology I think will make it more appealing to the younger audience not just the old - and old fashioned.
