Learning our History through live interaction.
Execution of Jose Rizal. Philippine national hero Jose Rizal lived his entire life to ignite change and inspire his countrymen. Though his life is quite short, his efforts to spark revolution and compassion towards the Filipino people and the country transpired to the freedom we enjoy today. Realize the contribution of our National Hero to the society and its impacts to the future by rediscovering the past.
The Cry of Pugad Lawin. The tearing of cedulas is, more often than not, overlooked as far as our history is concerned. Know the significance of this action, from what encouraged Filipinos to finally fight for their country and the future battles that occurred.
Making of Philippine Flag. Learning the depth of every symbolism in our flag requires thorough understanding. Each color represents a Filipino trait, creating a momentous design, which greatly speaks the collective stories of our ancestors. In fact, the Philippine flag we have today underwent a lot of revisions and HistoryLand will give us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the making of this authentic Filipino symbol.
Seeing is understanding
