Really interesting in order to learn some more about the people of the Philippines, but something was missing and that was an explanation of the migration and mix of the nowadays residents... there was one floor and another part under reconstruction, maybe that is why

Visual displays, films viewings and ancient artifacts. If you're a history buff, this will definitely interest you. Broken pieces of china, pottery, weapons and old clothes. A nice sight to behold, to see how our ancestors lived.

We visited the San Diego exhibition, which showed many of the articles retrieved from a sunken galleon. There were lots of porcelain crockery and pots, bits of armour and sword handles that had not disintegrated. There was also an exhibition of national living treasures, a...More

Rudimentary displays are rich with questions while their story leaves the imagination wide open with wonder. I have spent afternoons alone here and...More

A great place to get familiar with the diverse and rich ethnological history of the Philippines. The museum is well organized, offers a lot of interesting exhibits. Would recommend 3 hours if you dont want to just rush through. Admission is free at the moment....More

It provides a good general overview of the people and culture of the Philippines. Plus it's free, central, quiet and has great AC. I liked the exhibits of the musical instruments of the indigenous people.

You may likely have this museum all to yourself, which was fine by me. There's plenty to see and contemplate here, including ancient pottery/funeral urns discovered many years ago in a cave. Who made them is still virtually unknown. Other exhibits and artifacts include a...More

Enjoy the museum. There's no entrance fee. You need to have your bags check in at their counter. This is up to 4th floor. Each room is air conditioned

This is one of 3 museums close to Rizal Park. One is labelled the "National Museum" which is the national art gallery, the other is the Museum of Natural Science, and this, I gather is now called the National Museum of Anthropology. I spend over...More
