National Museum of the Philippines (Pambansang Museo ng Pilipinas); National Arts Gallery was an Old Senate Building. This gallery features more than thirty extraordinary works of portraiture from the known artists from at least two generations (Juan Luna, Fernando Amorsolo,  Guillermo Tolentino, Vicente Manansala, etc). Some of the featured galleries are; Gallery V honors Dr. Jose Rizal, 4 big paintings of "The Progress of Medicine in the Philippines", Gallery IX works of portraiture wholly dominated by Amorsolo, some donated historical paintings by Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and Far East Bank and Trust Company.

Two of the highlights of this building are Juan Luna's "Spoliarium" (a very huge painting located at the ground floor center area) and "The Parisian Life" (located at the 2nd floor Gallery XX). "Spoliarium" was a classic example of Luna's Rome/Madrid period, characterized by a dramatic and allegorical style, frequently depicting heroic figures in deep tumult, in the grip of larger-than-life themes such as courage and country. "The Parisian Life" also known as Interior dun Cafe, is a work from Juan Luna's distinctive period, dates from last year of Luna's own Parisian life.
