The Aquino Center and Museum in Tarlac, a facility dedicated to the lives of Ninoy and former President Cory Aquino, will introduce a new tour program for guests in August that includes a one-act play and a reflection activity.
The museum’s management hopes that the new program will enhance the experience of visitors, especially students, in the 14-year old center.
It will add a one-act play called “Tragedy to Triumph” and a commitment-setting activity to the usual 30-minute tour of the museum, which only covers a guided museum tour and film watching.
To be staged by local amateur actors, the play will invite the audience to “imagine being at the Manila International Airport when Ninoy was assassinated on the tarmac.” Meanwhile, the reflection activity, called “Panata,” will encourage “patriotic and spiritual reflections” among visitors through written commitments done after watching the play.
The new program will extend a visitor’s average length of stay in the museum to two hours.
Karen Lacsamana-Carrera, manager of Aquino Center, said the program will only be open to visitors who book via tour operators. Walk-in visitors can avail of the usual film watching and guided tour program.
The museum has already invited tour operators to experience the new offer in May.
The Aquino Center is located along Luisita Industrial Park Road, beside Microtel by Wyndham Luisita.
