Welcome to the Philippine Map Collectors Society website. It is our pleasure to find you visiting our site, which we hope you will explore to learn more about us and what we do.

PHIMCOS was conceived in 2007 when a group of five cartophiles discussed forming the first Philippine club of map and print collectors. This website is a part of our efforts to generate increased interest in the Society and its activities, as well provide a formal institution medium for the appreciation and collection, among others, of maps and prints.

PHIMCOS has held exhibits, such as the ones in the Metropolitan Museum of Manila and in the Yuchengco Museum. More activities such as exhibits and publications are in the pipeline. You can keep track of our latest announcements and upcoming events, as well as related news and articles, through this website.

Feel free to join our online discussions (you will need to register as a user to post comments) or to contact us should you have any questions. A section of the information we have on our site is reserved exclusively for Society members and can only be accessed with their respective log-in details. Should you be interested in joining us, membership information may also be found on this site.
