Laureate Library & Museum

The Magsaysay Laureate Library and Museum is envisioned to be a major repository and scholastic oasis for the study and research of transformative leadership and greatness of spirit that made a difference to the peoples of Asia and made an impact to human development. Currently, it houses a large collection of reference materials on the Magsaysay Laureates and the advocacies they are working on, including previously unpublished papers and documents, books, photos, and other archival materials about Asia’s leadership icons, as well as inspiring stories of ordinary women and men in Asia who have done extraordinary work that transformed communities and societies, and fulfilled human aspirations in Asia and the world. Upon its completion, the Laureate Library and Museum will feature curated items and special exhibits, documentaries, and forums about the life and work of the Laureates.
