The gold exhibition was my favorite, but the Alfonso Ossorio exhibition was pretty sweet too. Also the diorama section was a great way to learn about the colonial history. Definitely a good way to kill a few hours.

Ayala is a great place to spend an hour or two. Exhibits include a useful diorama sequence with an overview of Philippines history, some Philippine modern art, and fascinating and thoughtful displays of porcelain, gold, and textiles. The cafe had delicious and inexpensive Filipino cuisine.

Manila needs to do more to celebrate its history and this is one great example. Learnt a lot about the country and fascinating to see the Gold exhibition. Had. I idea about the gold dating back to 10th century. Worth a visit
