In addition to original artifacts, the museum uses infographics, realistic murals, touchscreen terminals, interactive maps, and a 3D audio-visual presentation. It also has an e-learning room where students can access online lessons on Philippine history.

The NHCP is the national government agency mandated to promote Philippine history through its museums and publications, and preserve the nation’s historical heritage.
