On May 28, 1992 the Music Museum was destroyed by fire. It looked like it was the end because it was literally burned to the ground. But artists and performers besieged its new owner, Precy Florentino, to put it up again. Two years later, on September 14, 1994, the new Music Museum was inaugurated. Like a phoenix the Music Museum had risen from its ashes.

The Music Museum experience is like being in a cozy home where artists entertain their guests in a big living room. It’s like watching people perform at a big party. That’s why it’s the only theater in town where guests can order food and drinks during a performance so they can dine, sip cocktails and feel right at home while being entertained.

When the Music Museum had its Grand Opening on August 8, 1988, it had over a thousand guests and there was non-stop entertainment from 8:30 p.m. to 2 a.m. Musicians, singers, artists and bands all performed for free!

Celebrities galore attended the opening of the Music Museum on August 8, 1988. Those who cut the ribbon were former Foreign Affairs Secretary and Senator Raul S. Manglapus, the Superstar, Ms. Nora Aunor and Pop Diva founder Kuh Ledesma.

The Music Museum came to be because its first owner, Kuh Ledesma, wanted a readily available venue where artists and performers could perform when they wanted to. Local performing artist grew in number after the first EDSA People Power Revolution but there were not enough places for them to perform in. Usual venues then like hotels were not always available, had stiff requirements and unpredictable schedules. The Music Museum - a bold idea at the time - provided the platform that would showcase and give birth to a wealth of Filipino talent in music and other performing arts.
The Music Museum will celebrate its 30th birthday on August 8, 2018. The Music Museum was the idea of Kuh Ledesma, its original owner, who envisioned a place where artists could sing, dance, act, and strut their stuff without having to worry about bookings, difficult schedules, and big-little details like sound and equipment rentals. It was a real gift to the entertainment industry then. It still is.
