This was a self guided tour with placards explaining what you are looking at, giving one a glimpse into the life of the well to do in days gone by. Friendly staff and security answered any questions for you.

Apparently this house, which appears to be perhaps 100 years old, was only recently built from scratch by Imelda Marcos, but there is such attention to craftsmanship and period detail that the results are strikingly authentic. So if you want to get a glimpse of how the genteel lived in colonial Manila, this is the place to go.

This is a Spanish house in Manila which I visited as well as a location where I did pre-nuptial photography for my upcoming wedding. It's a beautiful setting and a wonderful opportunity for great photos. Definitely a must visit! Please see my photos enclosed.

The entrance fees is php 75. No photography is allowed. And visitors allowed to walk on the carpet only. Only dining room and kitchen is allowed to take picture. Can finish sight seeing 15-30 minutes.

This museum is self-guided and involves you walking from room to room, reading the signs and getting a close-up look at the furniture from the Spanish colonial period. There is a restaurants called Barbara's in the courtyard. The museum is interesting and my favorite part was the toilet!

I have been here a few times when I was younger. Now I brought my children and they were so interested in everything in the museum! They were in awe how the Filipjnos lived back then.

Casa Manila is an old house showing how a rich aristocrats live then. Entrance fee is very minimal however, unless you acquire the services of a tour guide outside, you are on your own. You can see the bedrooms, living rooms, kitchen, comfort rooms and bathrooms then. Except for the kitchen, the entire house has a red carpet wherein you... More

Lovely old hacienda, lovingly restored and furnished, apparently by Imelda Marcos. Full of artefacts typical of the Spanish colonial period , around the 16th century.
