Now on its fifth year this year, the Gabii sa Kabilin (Night of Heritage) organized by the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. (RAFI) is joined by more museums when the event takes place on May 27.

The event is slated every last Friday of May to culminate with the International Museums Day and National Heritage Month celebrations. This year, 11 participating museums will be visited by the public.

Participating museums this year have grown to eleven from nine in 2010. These include Casa Gorordo Museum, Cathedral Museum of Cebu, Fort San Pedro, the Yap-Sandiego Ancestral House, Museo Sugbo, University of Southern Philippines Foundation Rizal Museum, Parian Museum sa Sugbo (Jesuit House), Sacred Heart Alternative Gallery, Cebu Normal University Museum, Cebu City Museum, and Mandaue City Central Plaza.

RAFI’s Culture and Heritage unit Executive Director Jocelyn Gerra said the yearly event is aimed at making people understand and appreciate museums and heritage sites as venues for cultural understanding by extending their operating hours, from 6 p.m. to midnight.
