MNH has many interesting collections. This is a must place visit when in Los Banos. This is likewise an excellent place to visit for students' trips. The entrance fee is very cheap. The staff are very knowledgeable and firendly.

The UPLB Museum of Natural History has good collections of the Philippine "biodiversity." It serves as a research and documentation arm of the Philippine flora and fauna. You'll see items you've never seen before. However, the place needs rehabilitation. I believe there's much they can...More
