The Jorge B. Vargas Museum and Filipiniana Research Center is one of the nine museums and galleries in the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman campus. A center for Philippine art and culture, its main thrusts are research, curation, and education.

The institution is home to the collections of art, books, archives, memorabilia, coins, and stamps of Jorge B. Vargas, a significant political figure in twentieth century Philippines and alumnus of UP. An avid collector with a vision for sharing Philippine art to future generations, Mr. Vargas donated holdings he acquired throughout his illustrious career in public service, sports, and scouting to his alma mater in 1978. Since it opened its doors to the public in 1987, the institution has received students of all levels, researchers, scholars, and the general public to experience the vast collection of Philippine art and culture.

The museum has galleries for permanent exhibitions as well as temporary exhibitions. The galleries are also spaces for educational events such as workshops, lectures, symposia, and walkthroughs and talks by artists and curators. The library accommodates researchers, scholars, students, and artists; it hosts small exhibitions within its spaces as well.
