it's a kind of manor house where each room has its own functionalities for example where the house owner discusses for business, etc etc written in front of each room :D This site also has two souvenir shops, and although some of the goods there are not very "Philippines", some like the magnets are nicer and lots cheaper than ones...

Casa Manila has a good collection of antiques and well maintained rooms showcasing what a rich man's house looked like during the Spanish era. The sala and the master's bedrooms were the most impressive rooms in the house, with pressed metal ceilings and ancient art pieces everywhere. Picture taking inside the museum isn't allowed, but you can take a photo... More

If you have an afternoon and you don't know what to do, just go to Intramuros. Keep on walking as every corner has historical significance.

Few museums in the area. This one is a really good option. Take a glimpse to the way of life of the affluent in XIX century. Don't miss it.

After the noise, traffic and pollution of Manila, Intramuros is bliss. This place is well worth an hour of your time (two hours if you look around the nearby shops and have a coffee in the cafe next door). Its full of colonial furniture and shows how a well heeled Manila family would have lived a couple of hundred years... More

So interesting, what a jewel this is, we were lucky enough to have a free tour guide who was doing OJT, she was very good and has a great future in her chosen profession. The whole building is amazing and a real must see in Intramuros

Interesting building done up like in the style of a commercial trader with genuine period furniture, an interesting insight into the past.
