I have been to the Shrine several times, indeed visiting it every time I go to Manila. The amount of material there about Dr Rizal is very informative and there are many artifacts made by his hands. He was a man of many talents.

This is a well designed display about the life of Rizal. I had not heard about this individual. It covers the end of his life and his execution.
