The Marcos overthrow/ People Power video left me with a lump in the throat

You need to be a history buff to take it all in! Dioramas take Philippine history through each important stage from Cave Men to the end of the Marcos tyranny. You need half a day... read more

It is a nice museum for history buffs and art fanatics alike. From the gold collection at the top to the historical dioramas at the second floor, all are worth the time and effort. The ticket costs us P225 each for residents, and good for us that my cousin, who is not a resident citizen, was also charged the same.... More

The museum is very close to the Makati greenbelt shops/restaurants etc. It gives a great history lesson on the bloodshed in the Philippines. The history of battles for control of the Philippines is quite complex.

You need to be a history buff to take it all in! Dioramas take Philippine history through each important stage from Cave Men to the end of the Marcos tyranny. You need half a day to do it justice as it is spread over several floors and there are audio-visuals to sit through. I have been twice, and at the... More

This is not a museum really but a place for real estate agents to run property sales events. So don't go there.

Huge mall complex with all you can imagine to pick from stores to restaurants of all kind. However, and not sure if this is a big problem this city faces in general, but all the time you can feel that awful smell like bad sewerage system. It's disgusting and since is very hot right now, can hit your nose pretty... More

We took our daughter to the museum for some educational excursion and we all benefited from it, not just our little one! It is worth visiting especially for Filipinos.

I was on business trip in Manila and found this museum inside the Greenbelt shopping centre. It gave you a brief history of the people, culture and costume etc. There was an elaborate exhibition on the traditions of gold accessory (the movie corner with light effect was very nice) and different types of local costumes which was very interesting. Downstairs... More

They have an interesting collection of items, as well as dioramas of Philippine history. The interior is very pristine, neat and air conditioned. It is located in the middle of a bustling mall, which makes it a nice, quiet getaway from the crowds outside.

A project by the Ayala business family, the Museum is very well planned and excellently maintained. Spread across multiple levels, it has sections devoted to ancient Austronesian migrants, Philippine costumes and culture, Philippine maritime history and Chinese ceramics as well as a gallery on modern history and politics. Several sections also have introductory videos which are quite useful and of... More
