We generally enjoyed nicely curated displays at Ayala Museum. We only found it quite overpriced. In comparison, we found the Anthropological Museum that is completely free of charge and much bigger more informative and educative for both foreigners and Filipinos.

It is located at Greenbelt 5, near Ayala mall, total of 4 levels. There're only few visitors during the visit. Can visit if you have time.

The Ayala Museum is centrally located right square in the middle of Makati. This is a good museum with an excellent book store. Very informative for both Filipinos and foreigners alike. A suggested stop to visit for a few hours.
