What if you could go around to tour the Philippines in just 2 hours? An interactive Lakbay Museo in Pasay City elevates the museum experience for those who would love to have adventures without having to spend a lot on travel.
Inspired by the Nayong Pilipino cultural theme park, Lakbay Museo offers a vibrant venue for people who want to learn and experience the best in the Philippines, with a twist.
Lakbay Museum showcases Filipino culture, making it a good venue for learning and to experience the Pinoy way of life outside Manila. The museum allows everyone to touch, feel, and even taste the things the Philippines can offer.
Good News Pilipinas came up with this list of some of the interesting things to see inside the interactive Lakbay Museo.

There are cultural performances throughout the day inside Lakbay Museo. The audience will get to enjoy the beauty of the Filipino folk dances – from the Cordilleras in the north to the Moros and Lumads in the south. Viewers will learn how diverse Filipino culture is by watching these traditional performances.
FOOD AND GOODIES
What is unique about Lakbay Museo compared to other museums in the country is that it offers food and goodies inside the interactive halls. Those who wish to taste local delicacies or to take home some goodies for their loved ones have several items to choose from. Different stalls inside the museums sell Filipino products good for merienda or pasalubong
Plus, every ticket includes 12 chips that can be used in case you want to buy goodies in their “palengke” which cost from 1 to 4 chips each.
Lakbay Museo showcases the beauty and bounty of Philippine waters. If you are interested in marine biodiversity, you would surely enjoy this section with its finely curated display.
It also calls visitors to take care of the Philippine seas with an installation showing underwater scenes of Western Visayas littered with plastic bottles.
Aside from promoting the Filipino culture and the Philippines, the interactive museum raises environmental awareness by maximizing the use of recycled materials into most of its displays such as plastic bottles, old tires, rubber slippers, and other waste products.
Visitors would enjoy checking the dried fish, tinapa and other market products without worrying about the smell since they are just life-like replicas made of recycled materials.
With its picture-perfect setup, Lakbay Museo would be a perfect backdrop for Millennials and the Generation Z who love posting on Instagram.
Apart from its cultural promotion and pro-environment commitment, Lakbay Museo also supports Filipino workers, local artisans, out-of-school youth and local entrepreneurs.
Lakbay Museo is located at the ground floor of S Maison at Conrad Manila in Pasay City. The interactive museum will open to the public on July 12. Regular tickets cost Php 799 for walk-ins. Book online to get Php 100 discount.
