Before the internet, there was wax. Yes, before the emergence of internet as today’s means of alternative learning and informing means, there was Wax Museum. Exhibits and Museums are another means of learning and gaining information outside classrooms then, which is also applicable today to teach and inform something to the public. Did you know that Wax Museums and exhibits like the King Tut’s treasures, the Air and Space History Museums of NASA, the last Man on the Moon, the Wax museums of San Francisco, Washington Smithsonian, and The Exploratorium were originally organized by a Filipino couple? Moreover, the concept of wax museum was the couple’s idea to help Filipino children elevate their learning experience?
Yes, it was a Filipino who conceived the idea of creating and staging a wax museum for the purpose of educating the younger generation in a friendly, exciting and enjoyable way.
Surely, you will be surprise if you do not know them as well as the people behind those wax exhibits. They are Filipino advocators for good and quality education in the Philippines of Marylindbert International company. Marylindbert International is the one behind the creation and staging of wax museums and exhibits, like the wax exhibits I mention earlier, as well as the company behind the success of The Real Bank story books like the serial Filipino book “Mga Kwento ni Lolo Pepe” – a proven high quality educational Filipino book that wins a Bronze Anvil Award and a Gold International Quality Crown Award for 2009 in London, for the book’s advocacy for saving, thrift and honesty. The Marylinbert International has also won the International Quality Crown Award for their wax museums and exhibits.
“The Terracotta Warriors and Horses of China, The Wax Museum in Manila, The Treasures of Man’s Civilizations, The Exploratorium, The Air and Space History Museum, The Museum of the Mind and Body… even concerts of internationally renowned performers are a few of the projects we have undertaken from inception to full production including the gamut of integrated marketing activities designed to maximize exposure from such events.”
The Marylinbert International is of course a pure Filipino company bearing the names of the Filipino couple and their daughter.
Mary – stands for the couple’s daughter Maria Ana Michaela Legaspi
Lind – stands for Mrs. Linda Legaspi,the CEO of Marylinbert International; and
Bert –which stands for her husband Albert Legaspi.
Linda’s persuasive power to convince multinational companies to support or sponsor her advocacies gave birth to Marylindbert International and the wax museums; and the rest become a successful history.
“We are Marylindbert. We are a multi-awarded, multi-faceted business pioneering relationship marketing and staging world-class exhibits and events from museums and institutions of learning around the world to educate Filipinos of all ages………..We conceived advocacy programs lauded by various concerned groups and have received awards and citations from them. We staged world-class exhibits and events that were ahead of their time and have set the standards other groups and companies imitate or follow……”
Marylindbert International success stories through advocating, which created the world-class wax museums and exhibits we have now in the world, is truly worth commending and bring world-class pride for the Philippines than the “over sensationalized” and “over reacted” boxing success of Pacquiao.
The Filipinos should be proud more to their fellow Filipinos who truly bring world-class innovation in the world and than focusing to some like Pacquiao who has become a “media puppet” and over exploited popularity. Class do not come from gaining a lot of media spotlights but on gaining a humble and refine reputation and recognition.
