“Nice historical items on display”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Bring your student card for a discounted entry fee. It was a big area with a garden in the middle. Did not had much time to look around as their staff's lunch was at 12pm.

“Marvellous items to see”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

San Augustin Museum, attached to the church n you can move through one to the other, more brilliant pieces of religious historical art n sculpture, following from the church site, cool crypt, for those that like that sort of thing, a moving place! Take your time n don't rush through the displays, absorb what is on offer.

“Be transported to another era”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

The museum is very atmospheric with vast corridors , solid granite walls & high ceilings. This should be the closest thing to Europe in Asia ! Lots of Roman Catholic artifacts and paintings although not very well maintained. The lightning could be improved in areas - very dark in places but maybe it is to preserve the antiques - not sure about that. Recommended !

“A must when you're in Intramuros”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Dropping by the San Agustin Museum, just within the San Agustin Church in Intramuros, Manila is a must-see. Why? This is all because San Agustin Church is officially the oldest RC church in the Philippines! Museum may not be that awe-striking, but there is already a come-on in visiting the place--- an "I'd been there feeling"
