The museum is really more of Yuchengco's collection. I am interested of hour RCBC became where they are today. That area used to be just a small RCBC bank but look at it now! I also admire how the Yuchengcos share their blessings to others and their advocacies.

Amorsolo! The Spoliarium by Luna! They are indeed masters. Awesome! My words are just no match with the grandest of the collection this hotel has.

I visited the museum last month (April 2014). Wasn't impressed at all. The entry fee wasn't much (about 100 peso or lesser). But I wasn't at all impressed by either the collection or the set up. I think if you have little time in the city, this is onr place you can easily skip.

I visited the Yuchengco Museum hoping to see works by Filipino artists; however, I was disappointed that there was only one gallery of about ten paintings, including those of Fernando Amorsolo and Juan Luna. The fourth floor showcases the lives of the Yuchengco family and a small section on Jose Rizal. The room on textiles was interesting because it shows... More

I have no idea why they chose such a modern (read ugly) looking building to house an art gallery. We visited it to see the art collections - I was a bit disappointed, since most of the paintings were either modern art or recent - but let me start at the beginning... How to reach - It is easy to... More

This is a tall building that you can see along Ayala Avenue. There are lot of security guards in this area. You need to provide the... More

I used to perform at RCBC Theater and this is just downstairs. This museum has somewhat a corporate atmosphere maybe due to the offices upstairs. We tried to check this one out since we we're there already. The displays are up to date and really look nice, though if you come outside, its a smoking area near it and the... More

You'll pass this area if you're searching for the Fulbright office. An unusual place, busting with activity and high-energy crowd. If you're planning to apply for a Fulbright scholarship, you'll definitely visit this place.
