Museo de Nuestra Señora de Manaoag

Manaoag, Pangasinan
by lakwatserong tatay

This museum is another part of Our Lady of Manaoag Church's ground aside from its Rosary Garden. Also this is part of my Manaoag sidetrip and a visit to the patron of Manaoag.

Entrance Signage
Inaugurated on May 10, 2000, the museum intends to foster the preservation, enrichment and dynamic evolution of Our Lady’s history and works. It aims to conserve, promote and popularize Our Lady’s historical and religious heritage. Much more, to recognize and respect Our Lady’s and the shrine’s memories.

The museum displays collection items of Our Lady, of the old friars, and of the shrine as well.

Hers are some of  the collection items you could see inside the museum:

An Old Carroza which is used to transport the image during her procession.
An Earlier Pedestal.
A collection of Pre-Vatican II chasubles, capes and a dalmatic which may date back as far as 17th century.
Monstrances, Chalices, Ciboria, Paten & Communion Plate, Candelabras.
Haloes and Crown of Our Lady and of the Infant Jesus.
Our Lady's Vestments, Perfumes, Pieces of Jewelry.

Below are some of the that i've taken inside the museum standing just in place where you could take some shots.

Our Lady of Manaoag
Aside from this musuem there is more spacious of new candle gallery that can accommodate the large number of devotees who light candles for their prayers and petitions. Subdued lightings that accentuate the glares of candlelight also add solemnity to the place. At the center of the structure, a soothing fountain is yet to be completed, where a replica of the image of Manaoag will be installed.

Devotees who wish to have their religious articles blessed may ask a priest to bless the items at “blessing area” beside the candle gallery. The area accommodates the blessing of holy water, religious items, and vehicles. Pilgrims may also find religious books and items at the newly-renovated religious stores in the shrine premises that sell a variety of rosaries, religious images, novenas and books.

Our Lady of Manaoag is a canonically crowned image of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, duly recognized by the Vatican and enshrined in a church under the Dominican Order in the country.

Museo de Nuestra Senora de Manaoag is part of the Convent of Our Lady of the Rosary (Manaoag). It is open from Mondays to Sundays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. except on Tuesdays. Admission is free of charge but donations are welcomed to augment museum maintenance and education program. They also accept mass offerings and donations for the Shrine.
