A gallery showcasing Marikina’s more than three centuries of culture, heritage and traditions
is now open on Malaya Street in Brgy. Malanday. The gallery aims to educate the young generation about the city’s glorious past and cherised values.
The gallery, called Bulwagang Kamalayang Pilipino ng Bahay Malaya, is housed in the former ancestral home of the Josef family. The ancestral home was demolished and a new two-storey structure was built using materials from the old house.
