The Museum of Modern Filipino Art (MoMFA) begins with a dream and the land on which to build it.  To stand proudly on historic Mount Samat in Bataan, its goal is to showcase the best of modern and contemporary Filipino art and to instill in future generations an abiding love and pride in their cultural heritage.  Aside from the structure that will preserve and display the art collections, activities such as exhibits, competitions and workshops are being designed for the MoMFA dream to come to fruition. By doing all this, we acknowledge with gratitude that man’s innermost aspirations and his very ability to create art emanates from the Divine Creator Himself.


While it is almost impossible to define the boundaries of modern Filipino art (which already spans a broad spectrum of genres, disciplines, themes and media) and with MoMFA’s collections already running in the thousands of articles, the Museum has organized its collections into the following galleries:

These presently virtual galleries are designed to become the physical galleries of the actual MoMFA buildings in the future.  With the advancement of technology and the rapid expansion of art trends and interests, these galleries can only be expected to grow in size and scope over time.
