NorthPine is thrilled to take you through a quick tour of the Clark Museum & 4D Theatre! In this museum, you’ll get to witness how past and future beautifully come together.
Discover how the abundant history of Clark City led to its very exciting future. This institution has a wide display of artifacts, old photographs and stunning paintings which show the rich talent and tradition of our cabalen, the local people of Pampanga. It is nestled at Clark Freeport, Mabalacat, Pampanga where you can feel a perfect blend of nature and city life.
The museum is hosting regular pop-up exhibits with different themes. During our visit, we were lucky enough to see the Salangian Art Exhibit, where beautiful paintings and sculptures were on display. Salangian which means ‘turn on’, talks about igniting the fire of artistry and keeping it alive. The works of art displayed reflect the colorful culture of our cabalen and how imaginative and expressive the artists are. Take a look at the photos below and share your thoughts with us!
The museum is arranged into four equally important galleries giving a bird’s-eye view of the Clark City.
The first gallery features Pampanga’s impressive geophysical properties. It boasts of Mt. Arayat and the towering Mt. Pinatubo which add to the popularity of the region due to their interesting stories and natural beauty.
The second gallery presents the Kapampangan people’s well-known ingenuity. You’ll see here how creatively they showcase their rich tradition and culture through their great craftsmanship. Mak Tumang, the designer of the world-class Lava gown worn by Miss Universe 2018, Catriona Gray, is a Kapampangan native. Truly, it runs in the blood.
Revisit the time of the American occupation in Clark at the museum’s third gallery! This section takes you to the Clark Air Field during the time of the Americans. Get ready to be amazed by the relics of warcraft including cannons and other army equipment displayed in this area.
The fourth gallery portrays present day Clark, a city in great transformation. You’ll certainly be in awe of its overwhelming vision towards the future. Generally, it’s depicting how this place has geared itself towards modernity from a long, rich history.
Finally, you can enjoy looking back at Clark’s history in a way like no other, by experiencing its 4D Theatre! This innovation summarizes almost everything you will see from the four galleries mentioned earlier. You can even watch the Mt. Pinatubo eruption with mind-blowing effects including wind, bubbles and mist. The 4D Theatre is also where you’ll more clearly see the whopping economic development in the pipeline for this city including the Pampanga Megalopolis Plan.
