The museum is currently holding a special exhibit on Baybayin, the ancient and traditional scripts of the Philippines. It is a pre-Spanish Philippine writing system and a member of the Brahmic family of India and is recorded as being in use in the 16th century. It continued to be used during the Spanish colonization of the Philippines up until the late 19th Century. The term Baybay literally means “to spell” in Tagalog.
