“Surprisingly good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2014

If you are in Makati, do find out what exhibitions are on here. There is a permanent display tracing the history of the Philippines using a series of dioramas (visual representations of key moments created using models) which are old-fashioned but still engrossing. I was also fortunate to see two other very interesting and well-curated exhibitions on the historical role of the country as a trading centre in the region. The ground floor cafe is good, too.

“Superb Philippines Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014 via mobile

All I can say. Visit Ayala Museum. It's really worth it. This place is a high-class museum. Every floor there is something to see. Its a great date too. I love the paintings and the Gold!!!. You must see the philippines gold! It's just so amazing. Downside of this place. You cant take pictures inside. :( security is high.

“must visit in Manila”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

This was a great museum. I especially liked the gold exhibit and the diorama exhibit that explained a lot of Philippine history. It was within walking distance from our hotel and right at the Greenbelt mall.

“Seniors get a discount”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

The reviews said it was worthwhile, but on a pension it was a little expensive. They had a Senior discount that made it very affordable and it was well worth the time!
