We popped in one afternoon to this museum as it was close to my hotel @shangrilamakati to make a change to just going to malls. It was a good alternative to window shopping , it is air conditioned so it's lovely. They had an opera...More

Fascinating gold exhibit, some nice collections of local artist pieces and capped off with a thorough lesson on Philippines history in the diorama walk-through.

The place is educative, align in the Deped memorandum about arts appreciation, such as humanities and philosophy, but what I observed the place is very much populous for the audience. Conduciveness is affected.

This museum is really worth going to. 4 floors of exhibits including an incredible collection of gold items found in Mindanao. I have never seen gold like that. The textiles and ceramic collections were fascinating. The history dioramas were very instructive but got very detailed...More

The 1st line of reception will be the security giving you the feeling "what will you want to see here..." and that kills the enthusiasm. Maybe friendlier guards and staff can be more encouraging entering the place, after all it is a museum and educates...More

The floor dedicated to the history of the Philippines was really interesting and the figures in the display cases meant it kept my 9 year old interested too. The art exhibition was good.

The 4th floor is all about gold - fascinating. The third floor is a gallery of rotating art. The second floor contains about 50 diaramas that give you a complete look at the history of the Philippines. It is well worth your time to visit...More

Came to see the history of the Philippines and certainly was not disappointed by the collections. I was with my daughter who grew up in the US and I wanted her to learn more about the Philippines. It was certainly worth the visit. A must...More

Having a half day visit here is worthy. An early evening flight back, I spent a morning here before rushing to the airport. In a huge air-conditioned building the exhibits are generously spaced in large glass cases - especially the pottery, jewelry and textiles are...More

The place is nice and a great way to get a run down on Philippines history. It's pretty modern as well. I did only want to go there to see the main museum to learn about the history, but the person I had to purchase...More

Hi! Half day guided tour (3-4 hours) with entrance fees & an English speaking tour guide is approximately US$140/person (1 pax minimum) or US$75/person (2 pax minimum) plus US$10/person if you want to visit Ayala Museum. The... More
Your excellent review is outdated already. I went back to the Ayala Museum, during the third week of January, and the gold is all back! It is ironic that I live in New York City, but missed seeing the display of those pieces while they were here.

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

Hi! I always pass by this museum, and I am interested in visiting it. But I am used to just touring myself around museums. Is it possible kaya to tour on my own? I find it more relaxing and solemn without tour guides. ;) And how much is the entrance fee, and does it have a time limit or something? Thanks!

There is no time limit just explore at your pace. The ticket counter, you can purchase certain floors for seeing, I forget how many pesos it cost.
