Philippine Sports Museum is a museum showcasing pictures, medals, trophies and tracksuits of  former Filipino Athletes who won in international competitions (like SEA Games and Summer Olympics). This started out as a travel exhibit in Philippine Sports Commission (PSC).

Visiting the museum will make you aware of the past sport activities of the country.  The museum is a repository of interesting and valuable items from different sports such as basketball, golf, billiards,  baseball, and even boxing. These exhibits collections were voluntary donations of athletes or their families.

The Olympic Games Section is the highlight of the museum. It is located at the center where photos of and memorabilia of Filipino medalist in the Olympic Games can be found.

Record-breaking performances of professional athletes (like Manny Pacquiao, Flash Eleorde, etc) are displayed on the outside walls of the Olympic Gallery around the museum hallway.

The museum even displays some of the torches used during the Summer Olympics – we saw the torch from Beijing Olympics in 2008 and Tokyo Olympics in 1964.
