Very informative and it's free! More people should enjoy this place. My favorite part was the jar urns from the metal age. It would be better if they install more seats for resting,.

Spoliarium is the accent of the museum aside from the roman style of the building. The wide collection of paintings best viewed at the upper level are also good to see.

The building is located at one end of Rizal park, opposite the Lapu Lapu statue. An interesting venue to walk through, and to understand about the country and the people. You can spend a good 90mins at least in this space, just soaking up the...More

Some parts were under reconstructions so maybe that is why I had the feeling that the real history of the nation was incomplete

This is a pretty good museum, situated in Rizal Park. Nice variety of displays, including on ivory, textiles and carvings. An enjoyable 2 hours and a must-see in Manila.
