You should stop by and check out the gold exhibit. And they have a fabulous history of the Philippines exhibit which is told in doll form. It's really cool. Don't skip this museum. You won't regret it. And, it's walking distance from Greenbelt.

Excellent permanent exhibitions - not to be missed is the pre Hispanic gold collection (some of the pieces were found quite recently from a construction site - if I remember right). The diorama exhibition is a classic. They also hold regular classes on art, Crafts,...More

This is an amazing place to learn more about Philippine history through their diorama and art displays. Amazing Gold collection exhibit too that shows how Philippines and Filipinos are rich with gold for ages.

It was a short walk from our hotel and decided to visit this museum. Staff at entrance was not friendly. They are just really there to take your payment. Go if you want to kill time. There really is nothing really special to see inside.

A dual pricing entrance policy for foreigners is a good start. The museum has a few interesting pieces of gold, and a history lesson about the Philippines in the form of a large number of childlike diaramas, depicting the way the poor Filipinos have been...More

4 floors with excellent English signage. Great for learning history of Philippines or if you just want to see some nice art & gold artifacts. Not too overwhelming. Allow 1.5-3hrs depending on how fast you breeze through.

The Ayala Museum located near the Glorietta area, it has 4 floors and I spent at least 2 hours there, cost me 400++ peso for the access. The exhibits are well-maintained and nicely presented. I don't find their gold exhibits interesting, but I do enjoy...More

The third floor, far opposite the gift shop, is used for changing exhibits. If closed, that means that a temporary exhibit was being mounted or dismounted. The ground floor also has a gallery used for temporary exhibits... More
