We paid 100P each and I entered apprehensively through a dark corridor. What a shock. The wealth of historic artefacts and relics here reminded me of Cairo Museum in the 1990s. Some items were kept in glass but many were just 'hanging around'. In addition you get access to a 'private church' with incredible ceilings. It was a labyrinth of... More

The San Agustin Museum which is adjacent to the Unesco World Heritage Site Listed San Agustin Church is a MUST if you go to Intramuros. You can easily consume a few hours there. They have a Beautiful Collection of Spanish Period Ivory among other treasures.

The museum offers artifacts and relics representing more than 200 years of Philippines's history. Furthermore there are two floors to explorestaurant. The building itself has it's own history. Manila is full of attractions and this a sublime monument

This is one of the museums we visted last week with my Indian friend. We enjoyed looking at the old paintings, church artifacts. The walk around the museum is superb. I recommend this for those who love to explore the history and culture of Philippines.
