Visited this museum today, which I found very interesting. I had visited many years ago, and there is a significant improvement since those days. There is an excellent collection of gold artefacts. These are of course anthropologically quite significant. They are however aesthetically not particularly charming. There is an excellent video on history of gold in Philippines. No photography the...

This modem building in the heart of Makati is an interesting and eclectic place to visit. It is composed of a series of special exhibitions, and some more permanent galleries including a beautiful history of the Philippines in dioramas. Well worth a visit.

this is a nice, modern museum, air conditioned and clean. well worth spending a couple of hours on a hot afternoon before heading to the malls next door or for a walk in the parks. galleries are on 3 floors and feature gold, ceramics, paintings and a diorama of filipino history. not the best museum in the world but impressive...

In Bogota there is a gem of a Oro Museum that is just outstanding. The fourth floor of this museum that is devoted to gold does not quite rival the Bogota Museum, but the comparison is inevitable. There is also something uncanny about the Spanish connection between the two countries. I stumbled upon this museum as I was walking through... More

This was my third visit to the museum, specifically to see the amazing gold collection. However, my other favourite part is the dioarama which is a quick and interesting way to learn about the history of the Philippines. For locals and tourists alike I guarantee you won't be disappointed by a few hours leisurely walking through the well appointed exhibits.

It was a nice place to have an idea of the culture and riches of the Philippines and it's people. The place is conveniently situated in the business area where guests can take a quick visit over lunch break.

It features the Philippine history, contemporary art, diorama of Philippine historical events and gold collection. It's worthy to visit. It opens from 9am to 6pm from Tuesdays thru Saturdays.

The diarama show on the 2nd floor is a must for a quick Filipino history lesson. Te gold collection is gorgeously displayed and historically important to the region and the temporary exhibit of Zobel, Amorsolo and Luna something that should not be missed in a visit to manila. I recommend this before going to intramuros as it will make the... More

Well worth a visit when in Manila. Also visit People's Palace Greenbelt. One of the best restaurants in the Philippines! Great place. Freshly cooked food, professional staff and special ambience. Recommend this place.
