Dr. Pio Valenzuela Museum opens
Valenzuela City, located in the National Capital Region of the Philippines, has just added a new tourist attraction that is sure to captivate visitors who are interested in history and culture. The newly reconstructed Museo ni Dr. Pio Valenzuela (Dr. Pio Valenzuela Museum) was formally opened to the public on February 14, 2023. The inauguration of the museum coincides with the celebration of Valenzuela City’s 25th Charter Day and is a tribute to one of the city’s most beloved heroes.
Dr. Pio Valenzuela is an iconic figure in Philippine history. He was a physician, revolutionary, and nationalist who played a significant role in the Philippine Revolution against Spain in 1896. Dr. Valenzuela was a member of the secret society known as the Katipunan and was one of its key organizers. He was a close ally of the society's founder, Andres Bonifacio, and was instrumental in its early development. Dr. Valenzuela’s bravery, leadership, and selfless service to his fellow countrymen have made him a revered figure in Philippine history.
The Museo ni Dr. Pio Valenzuela is located in Barangay Pariancillo Villa and was built on the site of Dr. Valenzuela’s former home, which was constructed in the 19th century. The Valenzuela family entrusted the city government with the preservation of the house and the legacy of their ancestor. The museum was reconstructed in four sections, including Balangkas ng Buhay, Haligi ng Katipunan, Guho at Gunita, and Muhon ng Bayan.
The museum’s opening night was a historic event, attended by the Valenzuela family, BSP Deputy Governor Bernadette Fatima Romulo-Puyat, and National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) OIC - Executive Director Ms. Carminda Arevalo. Mayor WES Gatchalian led the inauguration ceremony, which included the ribbon-cutting and the unveiling of the NHCP historical marker.
Inside the museum, visitors will be transported back in time and taken on a journey through the life of Dr. Pio Valenzuela. The hall features antique tools and equipment that Dr. Valenzuela used in his profession, as well as restored furniture that provides a glimpse into his home life. The museum is open to the public from Tuesdays to Sundays, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and admission is free.
The Museo ni Dr. Pio Valenzuela is a welcome addition to Valenzuela City’s cultural and heritage sites. It provides visitors with an opportunity to learn more about the city’s history and its revered hero. The museum’s opening also marks the start of Valenzuela City’s festivities for the upcoming Polo 400 Celebration in November. The event will undoubtedly draw visitors to the city and inspire them to explore its rich history and culture.
