Spend few hours here, while staying at Holiday Inn. A great place to be when it's really pouring outside Makati. Great arts here!

Manila and Makati is full of good museum, but this one is great. I only have one hour to go around and I love what I see there. Very informational and we can go around by ourselves, no need for a guide. It's easy to find and it link with malls. Big malls. Three of it

This is a well-run small private museum in the heart of the Greenbelt shopping complex in Makati. The highlight of the museum is the astounding collection of pre-colonial gold artifacts on the 4th floor. Very impressive. The dioramas illustrating various stages of Philippine history on the 2nd floor are also interesting and very informative.

The Museum was renovated...i liked the new concept Ayala Management has done. The footbridge that connects Malls, offices, Hotels as well as the Ayala Triangle was perfect.

Ayala Museum is highly recommended for visitors visiting Manila for the first time. The museum is highly organized, well maintained, and very clean. The exhibits of gold artifacts are all stunning with complete information to understand. Yet, the true and exciting exhibits of this museum are the dioramas of the history of the Philippines. They created truly beautiful dioramas to... More

Having been born in the United States, the history of my ancestors was still a bit sketchy. The dioramas of Philippines history was well done. It helped me visualize all the bits and pieces I had heard over the years from my father's stories. The Gold exhibit at the top floor was amazing. Most of my life I heard so... More

When we were there, they had an exhibition on gold artifacts and the pieces were exquisite. But the highlight of the museum are the dioramas which take you through... More
