About Lopez Museum

The Lopez Museum and Library is the oldest privately owned and managed museum and library specializing in Philippine material. Its rariori reach back to books and maps of the sixteenth century, works by the first internationally acclaimed duo of Filipino painters, Juan N. Luna (1857-1899) and Felix P. Resurreccion Hidalgo (1855-1913), plus priceless personal effects of Philippine National Hero José Rizal (1861-1896). With over 500 works in its growing museum collection and over 30,000 titles in its expanding library catalogue, the museum cares for holdings covering 600 years of scholarship and artistry.

After its inauguration in 1960, the museum established the Eugenio Lopez Foundation to ensure its future; institutionalized a curatorial management system and committed team; strengthened its conservation facilities; and increased audience development services. The Lopez Museum and Library cultivates a legacy of exemplary quality, timeless relevance, persistent awakening of wisdom and knowledge, dynamic reaching out to multiplying users, and purposeful accessibility to the richness and dynamism of Philippine culture.
