Since his childhood, Mt. Arayat and the countryside of Magalang, Pampanga influenced the thoughts and writings of Emilio Aguilar Cruz. “Abé,” as his close friends knew him, was a true patriot, an advocate of Kapampangan arts and culture, and even a counterintelligence agent during the war against the Japanese during World War II.
Discover the life and art of writer, artist and bon vivant Emilio Aguilar Cruz at Abé Museum located within the Abé’s Farm compound at the foothills of Mt. Arayat in Magalang, Pampanga.
The Museum presents collections on the lives of Abé and his son, Larry J. Cruz, founder of the LJC Group of Restaurants. Abé’s artworks, furniture collection, memorabilia and writing instruments are on view. Books from Larry’s collection are on display, with a special volume designated as Book of the Month for the public to read.
Abé was constantly fascinated by Mt. Arayat and the Magalang countryside. Throughout his life, he has been returning to these themes in his canvases. Artworks dating from his youth to his later works, detailing the countryside around Mt. Arayat, as well as portraits of the Cruz family, are featured at the museum.
He was an avid Kapampangan. Although he did not write in Kapampangan, his writings in English promoted the Kapampangan arts and letters. He theorized the union of the Tagalogs and Kapampangans in a time long gone that reflects the similarities between the two cultures.
The museum pays tribute to his career as a writer and newspaperman, artist and bon vivant, as well as his stint as UNESCO ambassador during the late ’70s.
The museum also has a section detailing the achievements of LJC founder Larry J. Cruz. It focuses on his years as a newspaperman and broadcast journalist, Press undersecretary and BNFI head, and publisher of Metro Magazine. His contributions to the Philippine hospitality industry, as well as a detailed description of the restaurants he opened under the LJC Chain, will also be documented.
Visits to Abé’s Museum require reservations. For museum tours, please call (045) 8651930 or (02) 5068140-41 to schedule a visit.
