This museum makes use of its small space well and offers a well-balanced exhibit of Philippine history, culture and arts. It's central Makati location makes it a great stop for the busy tourist.

This is a privately owned museum, but really worth a visit, with some first-rate exhibits of Filipino history and culture. The gold exhibit on the top floor is magnificent and worth the price of admission alone.

Really small, expensive museum with boring exhibitions, the history floor is mediocre at best with very short explanation and the art floor is not of any interest, not worth your visit.

In a country that does not put too much premium into history or other "ivory tower" distractions such as art and culture, the Ayala Museum stands as a haven in the urban jungle that is Metro Manila. Probably one of the best, if not the best museum in the country, the Ayala Museum houses some of the finest collections of... More

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
