Good day! I would like to humbly request for information regarding the following:

1) Total number of museums in the Philippines (national and local) as of 2021

2) Number of museums in the Philippines that closed for good during the pandemic/due to the pandemic

Good afternoon po. Thank you for the update! 

As for the clarification, yes po, I am pertaining to data for only museums under the National Museum of the Philippines. However, if it is possible and not a hassle to also include data about other museums not under the National Museum of the Philippines, then that would be very helpful and appreciated, too. But if it is not possible, then it's okay to just focus the data on the former.

Thank you very much!
