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.

The museum, a good stop for history-lovers even without Chinese lineage, is filled with well crafted, life sized exhibits documenting the history of the Tsinoys. The exhibits were so realistic and well presented, everyone in our group were clearly impressed

The first thing that came to my mind when I first visited the museum is that it's almost like the museum of Singapore's history inside Sentosa park. The museum is set up as a chronological exhibit of the history of the Chinese Filipino community starting when the first Chinese ship arrived in the shores of the Philippines as traders then...

If you're a tourist walking inside the Walled City of Intramuros and can't seem to find Bahay Tsinoy, it's because the name isn't on the marquee - the sign says Kaisa Angelo King Heritage Museum, named after its benefactor who'll you get to know, along with other Filipino-Chinese tycoons on the 3rd floor.
