This is a good place for those who want to find out the Chinese influence in the Philippines. The museum was not large; its first floor shows history of how the Chinese came to Manila; and how Spanish treated them afterwards. The upper level shows collections of Chinese-descendants, while the third floor shows the integration of Chinese people with others.

Bahay Tsinoy located within the Intramuros highlights the 500 years of recorded history in the migration of Fujian and Guangdong Chinese to Phillipines. The display and records are among the most comprehensive in SE Asia. To truly understand the multi-faceted nature of the Chinese diaspora in SE Asia in the last 5 centuries, a visit to Bahay Tsinoy and Manila... More

The exhibits were very attractive, educational and well maintained. I recommend the place especially for Filipinos with Chinese blood since it would be quite fun to learn about your heritage. I honestly didn't go with high expectations, but I could say that I was impressed. Don't go alone if you get scared easily, the wax life-like figures might creep you... More

This is a wonderful place to visit while you have time in Manila area. It is also very educational and I learned a lot about history especially re: our Filipino-Chinese heritage. The wax statues and displays all look very realistic. There is also a parking area below.

It was a very enlightening experience. The museum gives the history of the Chinese people who came to the country. One will be surprised how humble their start was in the Philippines. A must see for Fil-Chi.

This museum tells the history of the Chinese in the Philippines. It is both interesting and informative for those who like history. When you get towards the end however, it becomes a bit too much propaganda for me, talking about how Filipino Chinese love their country and stuff like that. If you are a foreigner, there isnt really any interest... More
