“Nice Structure”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Located between Ayala Avenue and Makati Avenue. It's a famous landmark in Makati. It was called RCBC plaza as well. Sometimes it's more on popular by calling it as RCBC plaza intead of Yuchengco. This is a tall building that you can see along Ayala Avenue. There are lot of security guards in this area. You need to provide the reason and the purpose of you visit. Receptionist are very accommodating.

“Cool Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I used to perform at RCBC Theater and this is just downstairs. This museum has somewhat a corporate atmosphere maybe due to the offices upstairs. We tried to check this one out since we we're there already. The displays are up to date and really look nice, though if you come outside, its a smoking area near it and the place is somehow crowded outside.

“Going to the Fulbright office”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

You'll pass this area if you're searching for the Fulbright office. An unusual place, busting with activity and high-energy crowd. If you're planning to apply for a Fulbright scholarship, you'll definitely visit this place.

“A Gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The museum's relatively small but impressive collection of historical artifacts and paintings by indigenous artists is a delight for anyone wanting to know more about the fascinating history of the Philippines.

“A Museum in Makati”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Small museum with a very corporate atmosphere due to the location. The biggest turn off are the smokers who lounge in front of the museum. There are some interesting pieces, but this is not the place to see free art. But they do have talks, shows, exhibits from time to time that are worth checking out, it would be worth the ticket price by then.
