The Armed Forces of the Philippines Museum exhibits the rich history of the armed forces and its heroic contributions to the Filipino nation. The early development of the Armed Forces can be traced back to the Tejeros Convention, where different revolutionaries united under one rule to overthrow the Spanish colonial government. Captain General Artemio Ricarte headed the Philippine Army at that time. The museum’s indoor exhibit is composed of different martial weapons, uniforms of the different branches of the AFP, and paintings and dioramas depicting the history of the AFP. There is also an outdoor exhibit where bigger military equipment and weapons are displayed including tanks and aircrafts. Avid collectors can visit the gift shop that sells books and souvenirs. A similar museum is also located inside the nearby Philippine National Police compound where the law enforcement agency’s history is showcased.
