Great time! The museum leads you from this surprise to another. I love abstract art galleries on the 3rd floor. Together with a fascinating visual history of the Phillippines on the 2nd!!

Cute place that is small and easy to traverse. Really enjoyed the art exhibit and the statues outside in front. Also the diorama section gave great insight into Philippines history from the beginning. Educational for sure!

Visiting this museum will open up our eyes to what our past looks like. It's just a small museum which only has some collection of items in their inventory. But it's more than enough to briefly learn our past events up to the present. It's...More

If you take the audio-guide and do the museum properly it will take you 4-5 hours ! The history floor itself (the diorama) took me close to 2 hours. I didn't know much about Philippines history and this was the perfect occasion to learn more...More

A concise and interesting history of the Philippines with a Gold Vault and a really nice collection of Chinese porcelain. Very much worth a visit. Excellent cafe attached as well.

Your excellent review is outdated already. I went back to the Ayala Museum, during the third week of January, and the gold is all back! It is ironic that I live in New York City, but missed seeing the display of those pieces while they were here.

The third floor, far opposite the gift shop, is used for changing exhibits. If closed, that means that a temporary exhibit was being mounted or dismounted. The ground floor also has a gallery used for temporary exhibits... More

Hi! I always pass by this museum, and I am interested in visiting it. But I am used to just touring myself around museums. Is it possible kaya to tour on my own? I find it more relaxing and solemn without tour guides. ;) And how much is the entrance fee, and does it have a time limit or something? Thanks!
