MANILA, Philippines (September 24, 2012)--Philippine museum officials say they are unsure what to do with all of the clothes and shoes left behind by former first lady Imelda Marcos and her dictator husband when they were toppled by a 1986 "people power" revolt.
The officials acknowledge the items have been neglected for more than two decades.
The National Museum says it is considering putting some of Imelda Marcos' Philippine-style gowns on display, but could not decide immediately because of their politically sensitive nature.
It confirmed an Associated Press report that monsoon rains damaged some of the Marcos belongings last month.
Museum officials say termites, rain and, neglect have damaged some of the gowns and shoes from her legendary collection.
