Malacañang’s Tumblr is the history book we wish we all had
The Malacañang Palace along the Pasig River has plenty of storied halls. It used to be the vacation home of a Spanish surgeon in the 18th century. The Spanish government acquired it and made it the official residence of the Spanish Governor-General.
To date, the Malacañang Palace has housed 15 presidents and hundreds of public servants.
Its museum, the Presidential Museum and Library (PML) is a treasure trove of artifacts and tales that will fascinate history junkies. But since not all of us have time to visit the Palace Museum, or any other museum at that, the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO) did the millennial way of reaching out to more people—they created a blog.
Since Internet dwellers do not live on boring, black-and-whites alone, PML presents new knowledge by using a kickass combination of colorful graphics and witty descriptions.
Have fun browsing through their Tumblr posts and pore through historical photos in their Flickr photo stream.
