Manila Clock Tower Museum open on weekends starting March 2

The Clock Tower Museum inside the Manila City Hall is now open on weekends so the public “can also enjoy our museum even on Saturdays and Sundays,” accoeding to Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna.

Jose Ma. Belmonte, project head of the Manila Clock Tower Museum, said visitors are welcome from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesdays to Sundays. The museum features the colorful history of Manila as well as modern art galleries with changing art exhibits.

The nearly 100-feet Manila Clock Tower, which was completed in 1930, was designed by Filipino neoclassical artist and architect Antonio Toledo. The rehabilitated clock tower was formally opened to the public in October 2022.

Just recently, the museum was picked as the Golden Leaf Presidential Awardee of the Philippine Leaf Awards Tertulia at Parangal 2024, an award that acknowledges integrity, creativity and excellence in Philippine live entertainment, performing arts, fashion and festivals. The Leaf awards will be handed out March 8 at the Manila Metropolitan Theater.

In November last year, the museum was hailed by the National Commission of Culture and the Arts as the grand winner in the Museums and Galleries Month 2023 Audio/Visual Presentation Museum Competition.
