What travelers are saying
- Philippines were the most remote outpost of Spanish Empire and the first thing one notices after visiting this museums after those in Mexico, Peru or Ecuador is the absence of great colonial at form 16th, 17th and 18th century. This may also be due to the fact that Manila was so heavily destroyed, including most colonial buildings in intramuros during the Japanese occupation and American bombing. One exception are retablos on Seven session of the cross from a church on the island of Bohol which still has some great colonial churches.
There is also a great deal of information on the liberation of the city from Japanese occupation and some halls displaying paintings of leading 19th century paintings as well as Rizal: his portraits by other painters and his own artistic work.Written 26 February 2020This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Went here with my partner and kid, and it's a real treat for some wholesome family fun. Make sure you wear clean socks since it entails a lot of walking over painted floors. Comfortable clothing is also advisable so you can do your most outrageous poses. The 3D-like paintings are really amazing and makes for some marvelous shots. These are authentic artworks by modern artists which provides interactive appreciation of paintings. Who says art has to be boring, right?Written 5 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- the place is small just good enough for the picture taking. They said birthday celebrant will be given free admission but there's an exemption to the rules and it's a little disappointing because when we are already in the place they said I have to pay full amount. even the discount was not given. over all the place is good and its really fun for picture takingWritten 21 January 2020
- Our cousins brought us here on a Sunday! Very nice but lots of steps. Wide variety of Philippine art and outdoor sculptures. Each location has a theme. I felt proud the Philippines has a world class art exhibit like this. They do have a cafe - Cafe Rizal that is popular with the locals. They run out of ice and other food early though. They need to fix their logistics. Also one negative is parking- you have to park on the residential streets and good thing they have parking attendants to guide you. Good for a quiet contemplative day.Written 13 March 2022
- Other museums may boast of collections of every sort, but San Agustin Museum has the best in terms of religious items ... from religious articles (statues of Saints, liturgical vestments, books, linens, vessels and other paraphernalia) to objects related to the history of the early Augustinian missions in the Philippines and abroad. Everything is well documented and displayed in a very orderly way.
The museum is adjacent to the San Pablo Church (aka San Agustin Church) and is divided into two floors built around a cloister. There are different exhibit rooms. Not to miss are the room dedicated to the works of Father Blanco (an Augustinian botanist), the antique jars' room, the old sacristy, the community Chapter Room, the gallery of statues of Saints, the choir loft, etc. The grand staircase leading to the second floor is lovely, while all the corridors around the cloister are instagrammable and evoke a sense of nostalgia. Entrance fee is Php 200 for adults.Written 11 September 2022
- Interesting internal architecture coupled with some interesting exhibits (say hello to the big Croc, you will know him when you see him) showing a wide variety of subjects. There is a lot to cover, not as much as the (main) National Museum, but something for everyone I would have thought. A good concentration on exhibits on creatures of the ocean.Written 15 August 2022

- I have been to many cultural heritage displays in the Philippines, but this is the best one I've encountered. Very well done, clean, comfortable, excellent displays, good information, very informative and educational. Worth the visit for sure.Written 5 September 2022
- I've been to the National Museum of Fine Arts years ago and was not aware that there are other National Museum buildings around like the Natural History and Anthropology.
During my last visit, i think we paid an entrance fee but now, it's totally free. The building is undergoing minor renovation from the outside but it won't spoil your visit don't worry. Overall i was really amazed especially with the San Diego warship of the Spanish navy.
The trade between various Asian cultures is nice too. There are other interesting things too which are too many to mention. This should be in anyone's wishlist. One day is not enough i guess to be fully immersed.
I wish i am able to read all the description and look into the artifact's details and all that but time is so limited. I might visit this place again if i have the time but i will have to come early next time.Written 17 March 2020

- A great place to refresh, stroll and sit. It's good for big events or celebrations since I had participated the cultural dances way back Panagbenga 2018 that was held in here but the stage lacks space. Also very historical. Good for those who loves about histories.Written 21 February 2021
