Kinder Field Trip: Quezon Memorial Shrine Museum


Located inside Quezon Memorial Circle, Quezon Memorial Shrine Museum houses the late President Manuel L. Quezon's remains and memorabilia. 







Manuel Luis Quezon y Molina was the 2nd President of the Philippines, and 1st President of the Commonwealth.






Memorabilia:





A portrait of former Pres. Manuel Quezon, and of his daughters, Baby and Nini Quezon.









A Time Magazine issue that accounted Manuel Quezon's inauguration as Commonwealth president.






A tailcoat from New York worn by Manuel Quezon for formal events.




 

 

Matrimonial bed 


 The original hospital beds that he used.





A present to the then-President Manuel Quezon from the Lepers.

Culion, located in Palawan, was a former leprosarium. or a leper colony.

He believed that lepers shouldn't be kept away in an isolated area.












It was him who initiated Women's Suffrage, the right of women to vote and to run for office, in the Philippines.
 Quezon died of Tuberculosis in New York, and was buried at Arlington National Cemetery. His body was later brought home to the Philippines, and was buried at the Manila North Cemetery, until they moved him to Quezon Memorial Circle.






Manuel Quezon was married to his first cousin, Aurora Antonia Aragon y Molina.

Five years after Manuel's death, Aurora and their daughter Baby were assassinated on their way to open a hospital that was dedicated to Manuel.

It was in 2005 when Aurora Quezon's remains were moved from Manila North Cemetery to Quezon Memorial

Lia after the museum tour. :)

  30. That was cool. I didn't know that Pres. Quezon's wife and daughter were assassinated. Good that the former administrations made importance of Quezon's contribution to our country.
