The Philippine Museum of Folklife and Folklore is a museum located in Berkeley, California, which is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of Philippine history, culture, and traditions. It was founded in 1992 by Dr. Dawn Mabalon, Professor of History at San Francisco State University, and several members of the Filipino-American community in the Bay Area.

The museum features exhibits that showcase the various aspects of Philippine culture, such as traditional clothing, musical instruments, household items, and religious artifacts. Visitors can also learn about the history of the Philippines, including its pre-colonial roots, its Spanish and American colonial periods, and its struggle for independence.
