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.

It has interesting displays and helps inform you about the Chinese community's history. So many bits and pieces of interesting information heretofore probably unknown to the ordinary citizen. Very educational and enlightening just as it is entertaining.

and also the merging of two people, two cultures, three if you count the Portuguese, an interesting place to look through, the Tsinoy living in the present in the Philipines have every right to be proud of their heritage

The Bahay Tsinoy Museum is indeed one-of-a-kind, a veritable treasure trove and visual encyclopedia of the Chinese influence and their vast contributions to what the country is now. So many bits and pieces of interesting information heretofore probably unknown to the ordinary citizen. Very educational and enlightening just as it is entertaining. Picture-taking is allowed.

This is full of interesting exhibits. If you have Chinese blood, you will feel lots of nostalgia. If you are non-Chinese, you will feel that you learned something.
