It was my second time visiting the museum. I was alone the 1st time but i asked a friend to join me the second time. We're still in awe at the Philippine golds that were excavated in Butuan. National Museum of Anthropology has a lot to offer as a whole (and it's free to visit) but the Ayala Museum is more secured from potential breach.

What a disappointment. The museum was advertised as worth visiting. But only when raking the effort to visit was a sign at the door noting the museum was closed!!!!

This small museum is packed with wonderful exhibits. Local and international tourists should definitely pay a visit! Visit the gold collection and be mesmerized..”you’re welcome”

Worth a look to understand a bit of Philippines history
Dec 2018 • Solo
Easy to access as it is part of the famous Greenbelt mall. Special high price for foreigners cheap access for locals. Most impressive and really the reason to visit is the gold articles on the upper floors. Very impressive artisan work. Sometime has good feature exhibits from more recent Filipino artists. Worth an hour or so of your time.

My favorite museum in Manila
Dec 2018
The Gold exhibit is incredible but the highlight for me each and every time is the Diorama exhibit. It's so fantastic to see and learn about the history of the Philippines from a non-Western-centric point of view. Go go go!

So much history of the Philippines and all so well set out. Easy to get around and in the heart of Makati.

Beautiful museum!!!
Mar 2019 • Couples
This museum is located in Makati shopping center. The shopping center is massive so better come prepare to find the entrance!
The collections inside are amazing!!!
I will remember all my life the beautiful funeral jewelry! It was very well presented with some special lenses to see things bigger, so that tiny details are visible.
There was a large pottery collection too.
We spent so much time there and we did not have a chance to visit the shop sadly.

This is more than your standard museum. It has lots of exhibits and a whole section dedicated to gold - a further section to Filipino textile (which had really interesting stories behind them). But it was the final dioramas telling the story of the Philippines which really did it for me. There are a lot of them - but they clarified the complicated history of the Philippines and made it fairly easy to understand. Would highly recommend this as a starting point for any trip to the Philippines.
