There are much better museums to go to in Philippines, much bigger and less boring. This museum is very small and doesn't have a lot of things inside of it. Overall, waste of time.

In spite of limited space, this museum has permanent and scheduled exhibits. Sometimes art, cultural and historical lectures are conducted by noted academicians and practitioners. The uppermost floor features the Yuchengco family's lineage through their artifacts. It is located in an ultra-modern designed building owned...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...More

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...More
