The Nayong Pilipino Foundation (NPF) will soon launch its permanent collection of ethnographic artifacts through its virtual museum.

NPF is the latest cultural hub to announce its temporary shift to virtual exhibition following the travel restrictions imposed in the country due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases. 

In a statement, NPF said that it will make use of its social media platforms to showcase the ethnographic artifacts currently displayed at its Cultural Park and Creative Hub in Parañaque City.

“We hope to use these online platforms to engage the public and to start critical dialogues regarding the objects’ history and the contexts of their acquisition,” it said.

Since the lockdown, the National Museum of the Philippines, as well as other private museums and creative hubs, have transitioned to virtual exhibitions since leisure travel, including museum visits, are still prohibited by the national government.
