Museo ning Ángeles

Facade of Museo Ning Angeles in Pampanga

Angeles City in the province of Pampanga, has a very rich culture and tradition. All of the symbols of the Kapampangan lifestyle is housed under one roof, Museo Ning Angeles or Angeles City Museum. The museum was built in 1999 in the former town hall that was originally built in 1922. The Kuliat Foundation Inc. manages the city museum and their "absolute purpose is to preserve the history, culture and tradition of Angeles City".

It also serves as a venue for exhibits, art classes, concerts and traditional celebrations. In 2012, the National Museum of the Philippines declared Museo Ning Angeles as an "Important Cultural Property of the Philippines".

 

Charms of Angeles

The main exhibit of the museum showcases the evolution of the city and its people. It is called Balikdan (meaning "to look back"). One will see the famous and notable personalities (Angeles City Hall of Fame), works of local artists, rare photographs of Angeles City during the Philippine-American War and memorabilia of Mount Pinatubo's 1991 eruption.

Being the "Culinary Capital of the Philippines", the city museum has a Culinarium inside. It is a exhibit that features the Kapampangan's expertise and love for food. Another permanent exhibit is the dioramas. These dioramas showcase the classic clothing of the Filipinos (Grand Dame of Philippine Fashion) and various lifestyle scenes in a Kapampangan's life.

 

Funded by the People, for the People

Kuliat Foundation Inc., is a non-profit organization, managing Museo Ning Angeles. To be able to keep the museum alive and running, the group sources its income from entrance fees, monthly donor contribution and grants. Added profit is also obtained from the museum's souvenir shop and cafe.

Every October, the city museum also hosts a street party called Tigtigan Terakan keng Dalan (meaning Music and Dancing on the Streets) which adds to their income as well.
