caretakers ever since. Their culture revolves around rice and during harvest days they call it tungul or a day of rest. All of these mentioned are the ones that remained notable for me and made an impact as we go through the museum. Those are the few things that are memorable for me during my visit. In general, I found the museum very creative and interesting as every visitor would be amazed about how the history was depicted through the use of art and that the museum were also able to deliver the events through storytelling in such an understandable manner. PROMINENT PRIMARY SOURCES The primary sources that have been used were mainly documents, and artifacts. Also, journals and letters, published books and autobiographies. There were exhibits in the museum which displayed the works of Rizal such as Noli Me Tangere, in which the characters were briefly introduced and explained. Also, in one of the exhibits the visitors could see Rizal’s mannequin moving slightly as if he was realistically writing on his paper his letter. As for the artifacts, the setup of the museum was almost exactly the same as the setup in the early times and it was based on how the people of Rizal’s time carry their clothes on, as well as the furniture and other materials that were used. On the other hand, the façade of some of the building was also included in the museum. Not only the buildings but also the manner their houses during the time was built. Autobiographies were used to determine the way of life of the national hero and other people involved in the historical figures. On some of the exhibits, I noticed that there were newspapers that were being read by the people while they were dining, and paintings that were displayed. Additionally, there were structures of houses that were in the exhibit which have also helped the people of today determine and imagine the kind of houses there were during the Spanish colonization. Some of the sources I kind of noticed were the use of audio and video recordings. From the very beginning of the museum tour up until the end, there were audio records that were being played along as we go on the walk through. Video recordings were also included as one of the sources of the information showcased at the museum.

EVALUATION As for the strengths of the museum, compared to the other museum, it is much more interesting and informative. It is because it has a lot of three-dimensional representations which would help the visitors to understand more what really had happened in the Philippines during the Spanish Colonial era. Not only the mannequins were available as representations, but also furniture, paintings, etc. The museum is rich in visual aids that it would not be boring for the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
