How is met museum different from the national museum? How was your visiting experience? Describe the kind of audience/visitors that are visiting the museum at the time you were also inside the place.

-For me met museum is more of like an intimate museum like then the national museum is very open/welcoming for everyone and it shows the different history of the philippines and artworks of the filipinos, while met museum has a selected/chosen artist that are displayed there.

When i visited the met museum, there are only 6 people was there including us, while the national museum has like a 50–100 people cause when we went there, there was a field trip happening and that place is very applicable for field trips of different schools and national museum is very known and popular for the different works of the filipinos.
