MANILA – Museums, traditional dances, and historical replicas are some of the offerings at Nayong Pilipino Foundation (NPF) at Clark Field, Pampanga.

After enjoying a picnic at the greenery park, families and couples may watch scheduled traditional dances such as Tinikling, Singkil, Sayaw sa Bangko, and Malong.

Contemporary performances like Dakilang Lahi and the Philippine Fiesta parade are also showcased daily at the park.

Tribal village-replicas will also catch the attention of visitors. Each replica is stationed by authentic tribesmen of Ifugao, Kalinga, and Aeta while they are showcasing woodcraft and woven cloth or performing their tribal dances.

Famous national landmarks such as the houses of Jose Rizal in Calamba, Laguna and Apolinario Mabini in Tanauan, Batangas are also replicated and available to visitors.

Museum lovers, meanwhile, can check out the Money Museum, which features both the oldest and latest Philippine currency; or the Textile Museum with its exhibit of the country’s textiles.

There is also a regular mass held at Barasoain church every Sunday at 10 a.m.

The NPF is open to public every Tuesday to Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
