We visited this museum as part of a guided walk, so only saw a select portion of it. It's not very big but has some interesting displays & is a really nice building. The church it's attached to is really beautiful too.

You can stand in the same room where the surrender of Manila by the Japanese was discussed. This was once a monastery but was destroyed in WW II and was rebuilt as a museum. You have 44 steps to go up and down to traverse the museum so is not handicap friendly.

The building is an former convent attached to a beautiful church and it features the history and contribution of the fist Augustin fears who christianized the Philippines. Beautifully set, the collection is very educating and mostly interesting. Highly recommended

I've been here twice this year, and both times did not disappoint. Although a fourth of the museum was under construction/rehabilitation during my first visit. Everything was already done by my second visit (December). It was a tad disappointing though that they doubled up the prices during my first visit.

Definitely nice combined with a visit to the church. Lots of history if you are keen. Otherwise, walking through it just awakens a curiosity to learn more. Beautiful garden, architecture, history, paintings and artifacts. Even my teenagers loved it.

Not ground breaking, but if you have some interest in Filipino history, it's a must go (so are a few other things in Intramuros). Lots to see in this museum.
