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.

The museum and the church are a great way to get away from the traffic. Get a tour guide in advance who can take you around Intramuros, but don't forget this museum. Shows the recent history of the Philippines quite well.

You pay about 100 pesos to enter museum which also includes a path to the church. Museum would have been better if there was a guided tour or an audio tour. Went through the museum wondering how each artifact was connected to the history of the church and the country's history. Lot of religious statues and items from the past.... More

The visit of this museum is a good add on to the visit of the Church and the entire area of the town of Manila. It takes only 1/2 hour to 1 hour to stroll through the museum, unless you want to see and understand all the details! I have no regrets that I spent the time to do that,... More

I love this place. It's really big. I'm amaze of it's architecture. There is so much to this in this place. It really takes you to spanish era. Down side of this place is that it's really hot inside. I wish they have AC to some rooms. I mean how they could preserve old artifacts if they dont install one.

This is the 2nd time I had been to this museum. My hubby nd I visited in the afternoon after applying for marriage license. He had never been here so I was ecstatic to take him. It's not fancy. It's dark and gloomy especially if you're in the room where the statues stare at you, but I love the art.... More
