THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES
Located in the Rizal Park Complex at P.Burgos St., Manila, the Planetarium has a small tektite display with tektites from different parts of Luzon, Borneo and Australia donated by Prof. Henry Otley Beyer of the Anthropology Division in the University of the Philippines.
No photography is allowed, but here you go!

I hope you enjoyed seeing these tektites and meteorites - Do pop into the Planetarium in Manila if you get the chance!
I do not believe that any further public displays of tektites can be found in the Philippines.
