I love looking at old paintings and relics so this place was very interesting for me. Worth the entrance fee and couple of hours spent there.

Fantastic museum to go through, not just for the relics, but for the architecture. It is worth it, but it's a shame you are now forced to pay for the museum entrance in order to see the church.

I visited the San Augustin Museum as part of a tour with Yolo Travel. The museum is very beautiful and well stocked with interesting historical artifacts and art. Well worth a visit.

Try and stop by this delightful church. It has a lovely feel about it with much to see and appreciate. Wonderful exhibits to browse in adjacent hallway and alcoves. This is an old church and sometimes, one can be lucky and catch a wedding or mass in progress. With many people around, it can get stuffy inside. Just ancient fans... More

This church is such a great example of architectural of the medieval style. Even though the church was busy with a wedding on the day of my visit, still felt peaceful and retaining an air of solemnity. Do not miss the museum, which is a bit pricey by local standard. The corridors, courtyards and rooms all have a very monastic... More

Located next to the San Agustin Church, this museum offers knowledge and education for people who want to know more about history. It requires us to pay PHP 100/person to enter the museum. There are many paintings of saints inside. There are also several air-conditioned rooms used to store historical objects. No-flash photography is allowed in some areas, but several... More

Connected to the church the museum is definitely worth a visit. Our favourite pieces were the model ship and model of the San Augustin complex on level 2.

Because of poor conditions many paintings are in decay, many will be lost in probably a decade or two! Definitely visit now, while there is still some historic content in this museum.
