About Cosplay Museum:
A joint project of Cosplay.ph and Diliman Prepatory School, the Cosplay Museum is meant as an educational beacon to enlighten the general public about Cosplay, its roots and historical landmarks in the Philippines and to educate the youth on the various aspects of Cosplay. The museum is also a venue for allowing Cosplayers to congregate and have their own small activities with the frequency that is impossible in most large-scale conventions.
Along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City, the museum is located next to Diliman Prepatory School. It is, however, independent of the complex allowing it to operate during times when the school is closed.
