1.5 - 2 hours should be enough to cover this museum. Upper floor is a collection of Yuchengco family artifacts and Jose Rizal's memorabilia. Other floors host Filipino arts - mostly contemporary, but also several works of renowned Filipino artists - Amorsolo, Hidalgo, Luna. I wouldn't call it overwhelming, but if you have couple of hours, it's a nice place... More

Basically it's a shrine for the Yuchengko Family, some Rizal facts, a couple floors of good/average paintings, a good exhibit about Eduardo Castrillo, and a gift shop. The first floor is about Rizal and how he is a Player and loved a dozen women. Then you walk into a room about Ambassador Yuchengko and you see 100 photos of famous... More

The small number of paintings and sculptures on exhibit at this museum should not dissuade you from investing about an hour to visit it. You'll get a good sampling of the works of Philippine Masters and and some of its leading sculptors. The José Rizal collection on the top floor assumes that you know the basics on the life of...

It is a small museum (even though spread on 4 floors) with a mix of permanent and temporary exhibits that both focus on local personalities, history and art. The building itself is architecturally interesting.

I visited the museum due to special exhibition on Mexican art which is outstanding. However, this little museum in RCBC Plaza in Makati hid some unexpected gems in their permanent collection in 1st floor. Yuchengco doesn't have vast collection of national artists' work as much as Vargas or National Museum however I found some of probably my favorites here. There... More

We had our training last year in RCBC building for the whole company. Their facilities are good however they can only accommodate limited pax. We are about 500 in the company and we cannot actually be in one whole room so we just squeezed ourselves in. All in all it's just an okay experience.

This Museum was created to house the art collection of Secretary Alfonso T. Yuchengco. It speaks of his legacy that will surely sway you to admiration!

I truly appreciate a museum with mixes of different forms of art. This museum houses not only creations by renowned painters but also installation arts and sculptures. Even the doors and some of the fixtures in the museum have been created by artists. I remember a specific door (it has a beautiful texture to it) to a Chinese calligraphy exhibit.... More

Fascinating museum with a mix of good things. First you have the exhibit that explains who the Yuchengco family is and also gives history of Rizal. There are some more modern artists displayed throughout - both paintings and architecture. Parts of the exhibit looks temporary and though the paintings were beautiful, the walls and the rooms where they're displayed look... More

Starts at the top and works its way down. Other than the top floor, rotating exhibits of featured artists. Best were the contemporary prints.
