This is a house furnished in Colonial style. It was very well done and interesting, although some more information about the house and the families who had lived here would have added to the experience.

Has an entrance fee and does not allow photography inside. However, the rooms and the displays are well-maintained and the security (wearing guardia civil uniforms) know tidbits of information about the displays.

Real well mantained Spanish Colonial house. Three guards watch u to make sure u dont take pics. The interior gives a real nice picture about how they lived in that time. There is also a small restaurant but the two waiters have to run and dive under the bar and run up the stairs to get the food and bring... More

This place is small, and even the 50P entry price is not really worth it. It shows how rich Filipinos used to live, basically all you see is fancy furniture in a few rooms

Beautiful museum definitely worth time (45 min) and money (75php)! You can literally feel the atmosphere of older time there and imagine the life of rich people of Intramuros of its most famous times.

Worth the hour trip though this amazing restored house. Shows what the wealthy lived like when they didn't have air con or modern conveniences. Even staff to pull the fans on ropes. Great location in the heart of the city near the wall.

Right in the core of the old Manila, within the Intramuros is located this museum, called Casa Manila. It is situated across the historic San Agustin church and is bounded by the Real Street, General Luna Street, Urdaneta Street and Daan Cabildo Street. What we saw in this museum is a very beautiful presentation of the colonial lifestyle during Spanish... More

Great look into how the wealthy lived in old Manila. Has a great collection of antiques and the rooms have been restored to perfection. Well worth the time and the small fee to enter.
