Far too expensive! The newspaper advertized a DARE exhibition: artists who dared to defy conventions with their art but reception knew nothing about this exhibition the day before it was due to be shown. After my returning to the hotel and getting more information they found something about it on their computers but it is very strange that they were... More

Only when you have spare time and want to know the history of the Philippines. They have a long model display that show the start of the Philippines when the first group of people arrive the island and live in the cave till the days of being occupied by Spanish, British and even during the Japanese war. If you want... More

My brother who was away from Philippines for 20+ years reconnected to Filipino History once he visited the place. During our visit there was also coloring activity for kids and my 3 year old son enjoyed.

Had a very nice visit to the Ayala Museum, it's very conveniently located in the Greenbelt/Glorietta area of Makati. Entry fees were 100/50 adult/student, I thought this was an acceptable price, given the quality of the productions, location, staff and building. Exhibits: Philippine gold ornaments from pre-colonial times, I had no idea, Asian pottery/China from the past few centuries, art,... More

What did I know about the Philipines before visiting this gem of a museum? NOTHING. But I sure know a lot more now! Really neat diorama that steps you through the entire chain of events that is the Philipines. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed the art exhibition, most particularly the impressionists that had studied abroad and then painted Manila and surroundings... More

Take a coffee break while viewing the exhibits so you can develop your taste buds too. I just love going to cafes inside museums and galleries anywhere in the world. Oftentimes the interiors of these cafes are artistically-designed and the food as well.

The museum is already integrated in Greenbelt Mall, it would be a shame to not visit, if you were already there. You get big discounts with a student or senior's ID, its pricey for a regular, but even more pricey for non-locals (aka foreigners) You pay to see the 1st-3rd floor while you pay extra to reach the 4th floor...

Modern and interesting museum in the heart of the shopping district. Two good exhibits - the pre-colonial gold collection on the fouth floor is outstanding. On the second floor over 50 dioramas of Pinas history.
