National Museum of the Philippines. Source: Rappler, 07 August 2018

via Rappler, 07 August 2018: The Philippine senate has voted on its third unanimously to pass a law strengthening the National Museum as the ‘keeper of Filipino Heritage’. The bill still has several administrative steps to complete, including approval by the president before it becomes law.

If the bill becomes law, the National Museum will be tasked with acquiring documents as well as preserving, exhibiting, and fostering research of artworks, cultural, and historical artifacts that represent Filipino heritage and the country’s natural history.

The law will also allow the National Museum to retain and use all income derived from all its operations nationwide and overseas. This will grant it more flexibility in generating and spending its income to fund redevelopment.
