Vargas Museum

Of all buildings in UP Diliman, you'd be surprised that the Vargas Museum would be the only building with *no* pictures in this blog. Why? You'd have to go there and see for yourself.

So if you are, I suggest you go on a Wednesday, where entrance is free. Although even if you do visit on *payable* Museum Hours (Tuesdays to Sundays, 9 AM to 4 PM), prices range from PhP 15 - 20.

The highest floor on this building, the third floor, happens to be the most boring as well. The staff literally had to stop me from going up (being topnotcher, intuition dictates me to climb every staircase). What's there? Library (typical) and Archives. Offices for technical and artistic support. A sitting room.

When I went to the basement (counterintuition of the topnotcher), I chit-chatted with a personnel. She told me sometimes, they hold art exhibits on the third floor, and it was off season. The nice seasonal gallery was on the Edge (first floor), featuring the Art of Nelfa Querubin, a beautiful collection of patterned, inscribed, fired and glazed art that literally rocks. The collection will be here up until the 15th of February, so if you don't have a Valentine, just re-institute your love for art. (charot)
