I really enjoyed the explanation of the ancient to modern history of the phillipines. In addition the museum is a very reverent place, and is built on the principles one would expect.

The museum is conveniently located in the Greenbelt Shopping area and a nice break from shopping and eating! The gold exhibit on the top level is especially worth checking out. the dioramas provide a good pictorial overview of the history of Philippines. Note that non-residents are charged an admission fees of around PHP 400 (almost US$10) per person which is... More

Ayala Museum is one of the best museum in the Philippines. The most exciting part of the museum is Jewelry museum that is one of the biggest and oldest collection in the Philippines. The rest of museum is not really exciting.

It was very educational, the facilities were nice and well kept. I especially loved their gold collection. Something Filipinos should see... The cafe beside the museum is also nice.

Loved seeing the wonderful gold collection. My parents who visited the museum was very impressed by it too. What made it great was you could look at some of the pieces in detail as magnifying tools are included. There's also a quick show narrating the history of the collection. The art collection at the time of our visit was great... More

Ayala Museum is located adjacent to Greenbelt shopping mall and it is really easy to find. The museum is divided into 4 different floors. I enjoyed so much the diorama of the Philippines history in the 2nd floor. Very nice place and definitely you will learn more about Philippine from this museum.

The place had really great exhibits and an impressive historical diorama series. The size was not too big and easily done in an afternoon. It was not too expensive and clean. Did not have much need for service so cannot comment on that.

Thank goodness they spent a few of their billions on a little cultural venue. Excellent display of Fernando Zobel's paintings (one of their relatives, but a prominent Filipino/Spainish artist). The gold exhibit is first class and very interesting, but we didn't see everything else. Good giftshop with art books and souvenirs for sale.

The gold exhibition was good, and there were some good informative displays. The diorama exhibit gives a good overview of Philippine history for newbies. It's a small museum but is very revelatory of the role that private wealth plays in Manila - for heritage, knowledge preservation, commerce, urban development .... The museum is part of the pleasant Greenbelt shopping development... More

Gives a good understanding of the history of Philippines. The gold items are really good but I also enjoyed the stories from the history. Location of the museum is very convenient close to the Green Belt (part of it I think) so easy access and also nice to end teh visit with a "snack".
