The National Museum Planetarium is one of many divisions of the National Museum of the Philippines. Located in Ermita, Manila, this division is one of my favorites among all museums I have visited in the Country. You’ll know why when we get to the next pages 🙂

There are other museum divisions near the Planetarium, namely: National Museum of Anthropology (open), National Museum of Natural History (open), and National Museum of Art (open).

There are many routes and roads to the Planetarium, but perhaps the most popular and easiest is by using the Light Rail Transit (LRT). Whether you’re from Monumento or Baclaran, just alight at United Nations Avenue Station and walk your way to the Museum. Below is a map you can use for directions.

It’s just 1km away from the train station, and I suggest you wear sunglasses or use an umbrella when visiting from morning to mid afternoon. The heat in Manila during summer season at times becomes unbearable. Don’t forget to drink lots of water before heading out!

    1. Please do re-visit! The Planetarium is fully renovated inside with new comfortable seats and a better projector 🙂

      Hope you can share with me your experience when you go back. Thanks!

    Perfect treat for myself on my birthday! I always dream to go there since I was a kid. Big thanks to your blog, I’m urged to file a vacation leave and go there on Friday, August 18! 🙂
