This First Mobile Museum Boxes is a collaborative project of the Institute, the National Museum of the Philippines, and The University of Tokyo’s University Museum, supported by The Toyota Foundation. The traveling project focuses on Mindanao’s diverse natural history and is displaying 10 different specimens of four categories: terrestrial plants, terrestrial animals, aquatic animals, and geology of Mindanao at the lobby of the College of Science and Mathematics (CSM). Project members are Dr. Ayumi Terada, assistant professor, University Museum, University of Tokyo); Dr. Luisito T. Evangelista, curator, Botany Division, National Museum of the Philippines); Emerito B. Batara, laboratory technician, Natural Science Museum, MSU-IIT; and Dr. Akira Matsuda, associate professor, Graduate School of Humanities and
Sociology, University of Tokyo. In an interview, Evangelista said that the project started from their dream to promote Mindanao and to erase the negative connotation it currently has. Terada added that the mobile museum boxes “can go anywhere without specific museum spaces [for] people to get opportunities to see exhibit more without [the] intention to visit a [real] museum.” She thought that “if people know the natural history of Mindanao, they will love their own natural heritage more.” The exhibit will be on display for two weeks until the 29th of January and will travel to Xavier University, Cagayan de Oro City in February. The Mobile Museum Boxes was launched in December 2015 at the National Museum of the Philippines, Manila.
