Metropolitan Museum is one of the best (and my favorite) museums in Manila. It's not very far from our place. It is located along Roxas Blvd. near Rizal Park. The place has both permanent and temporary exhibits (on the upper and on the ground floors,...More

The Met is a good place to know about the local modern art scene. Once you pay the admission fee, there are 2 floors to explore. Strangely, on the day of our visit, the air conditioning system wasn't quite able to cool down the top...More

This is a lovely museum. The exhibits are fantastic. Colourful, vivid, poignant, well-defined. It is the best modern museum I have been to. The staff are great. Highly recommend.

Don’t usually like paying for galleries but at 100 pesos it was worth a look and a good way to escape heat. Has an interesting array of exhibits

Always go to the Metropolitan when in NYC. Michaelangelo exhibit was drawing big crowd and we chose poorly by going on a Saturday morning. That was packed and we really didn't enjoy it much, but the rest of the museum compensated for that nicely. One...More

A must for art and history buffs. Large collection which can be overwhelming. One day may not be enough to see it all. For short visits, plan it well, choose the galleries you like.

This was an indifferent museum, with a receptionist who did not make us feel welcome. Several areas of the museum were closed to set up new exhibitions. The modern Filipino art seemd quite angry and psychedelic. Some of it was quite political. The rest was...More
