San Agustin Museum


On the day weekend that the Sto. Niño de Cebu stayed in Manila, my parents and I visited San Agustin Church to get a glimpse of the Sto. Niño.  Unfortunately, we arrived too late as the Sto. Niño de Cebu is making it's tour to Pasig unto Laguna.

So, I decided to visit and take a look inside the San Agustin Museum.  It's been a long, long time since I wanted and craved to go inside the Museum being a frequent visitor of Intramuros with my dad.

It was a hot afternoon and I went in after lunch.  You could tell it was way too hot as I emerged from the Museum almost an hour after, drenched in sweat.

I found the San Agustin Museum very wonderful and very typical of a religious museum.  I loved taking photos of every church bell on display for the Sto. Niño de Cebu's visit and it was my chance to go near the altar of the San Agustin Church.  I regret that I didn't try to climb the stairs of the antique pulpit of San Agustin.

I went around the museum premises and what caught my eye was the Biblioteque or the library.  I love the feel of studying, researching and leafing thru all those ancient books of knowledge on religion and history.

I love the other room which displayed saints in ivory and wood adorned or garbed, the vestments of the priests in ancient times or historical times and relics and pieces of history on each wooden panel of a church.

I love looking at the ancient paintings that showed or espoused the History of the order of San Agustin thru the years.

My eyes rested and relaxed as I went thru and around the San Agustin Church' garden.

Thank you San Agustin Museum administrator for allowing me time to visit your musuem!!
