Founded in 1981 as a non profit, apolitical, non-sectarian organization, the Museum Volunteers of the Philippines (MVP) aims to study the Philippines, setting it in its historical and Asian context, to provide voluntary assistance at local museums and to promote friendship and understanding within our international membership.
Initially, the MVP focused on voluntary work in local museums but over time has broadened its activities whilst ensuring that volunteer work remains an important part of its purpose.
Between September and May, regular activities include museum volunteering, monthly lectures, study groups, the February lecture series, 'MVP After 8' lectures, excursions and the Philippines: Past & Present history course. During June, July and August a summer program is conducted for interested members.
Membership entitles you to attend these activities, access our library and receive our newsletter.
