The National Museum of the Philippines has committed to keep the lights on at the facades of its four buildings at night upon the request of Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso.

In a letter addressed to the Mayor, National Museum Director General Jeremy Barns said that he has already issued an order to “immediately implement” Domagoso’s request.

Domagoso asked Barns to light up the facades of National Museum of Fine Arts, National Museum of Anthropology, National Museum of National History, and National Planetarium from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. every night.

“The National Museum is indeed one with the City Government in doing all that we can to promote our country’s capital city, and we are proud to be your literal neighbor in this effort,” Barns said.

“We will now commit to establishing a system where this will be facilitated as ‘automatically’ as possible between the stated times,” Barns added.
