Quezon City to unveil interactive museum
This is a press realease from the Quezon City Government.*
MANILA, Phlippines (UPDATED) – The Quezon City government is offering a preview of QCX (QC Experience), an interactive museum that will showcase the city’s rich history and transformation as the country’s premier city.
QCX, an interactive socio-cultural museum and green compliant building in the city, will open its doors on Monday, November 9, 2015 at Quezon Memorial Circle at 4:30 pm.
The program will start with ribbon-cutting ceremonies to be led by the Mayor Herbert M. Bautista, Vice Mayor Josefina Belmonte and Congresswoman Leni G. Robredo as the guest of honor.
Unlike other museums, QCX enables visitors to relive and experience moments in the city’s history using technology. As an experiential museum, QCX also provides visitors a chance to interact with the displays and allow them to take selfies in each gallery or even shoot and watch themselves in videotape.
The five-pod museum complex has its own coffee shop, a small cafeteria and memorabilia store at the lobby, where visitors can spend time, dine or buy souvenir items. It also has a small theater with 80-90 seating capacity that can be rented out for group film screening and other events. Its lecture room, which has 60 seats, can also be rented, as venue for important meetings and other activities.
The QCX displays the City’s humble beginnings starting with Manuel L Quezon’s vision on a hill, the present-day Quezon City, and the vision towards its great, green and growing future.
Meanwhile, the city government is also set to launch the Great, Green, Growing Traveling Photo Exhibit, in collaboration with the Foundation for Communication Initiative (FOCI), at Fairview Terraces on November 10, 5:00 pm.
The exhibit will feature the works of renowned travel photographers, Marc Go and Eric Beltran.
