Weddings are usually held in this place due to its historical events. Century old paintings are found inside the Museum. For a Catholic, this is a must see place.

I enjoyed touring the museum and reading all the information stated inside, the best part is the inside the museum where they berried all the priests since 1500 i guess.

Intramuros is a walled city that dates back to Spanish times. Located in Intramuros is the Manila Cathedral, where many high profile Filipinos get married. You can catch a horse-drawn carriage for a tourists tour of Intramuros or you can take a walking tour. The horse-drwan tour will avoid the eyesores that are the squatters areas located inside Intramuros, and... More

Stopped by here as part of a intramuros tricycle tour. Did not go into the museum, but did go into the church. It's worth the stop.

This museum feels as if a lot of thought and care has gone into it. It's also has much better lighting than many other museums I have visited in SE Asia. If you have any interest in history you're sure to find something to interest you here.

The museum is undergoing a major refurbishment, but even in its yet unfinished state, it is already worth a visit.

TA, rather confusingly, list three attractions in Intramuros as San Agustin Church, San Agustin Monastery, and San Agustin Museum. The vast majority of tourists probably see all three simultaneous. The church is still a working church, but unless you come for mass on Sunday, the doors to the church will be closed. The former monastery is now a museum, and... More

It dumbfounds me there were no crowds here with all of the thingsto see. Many 100+ year old paintings and other artifacts that date back centuries. Well worth a visit to see some of this history.
