“Better if you go with a good guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

A very nice restoration of an Intramuros family home but I have to say its is a lot different from just going there on a field trip during my school days and going with a really good guide who has done the research and can really tell a good story. I have to suggest that you go here with Carlos Celdran, you can look him up on the internet, even if you have been there a hundred times nothing compares to what he offers.

“"Another Beautiful Museum"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012


This beautiful museum is located inside Intramuros. Casa Manila is one of the beautiful building in the Spanish colonial era. This place is the major tourist attractions in Manila, Philippines. The Casa Manila is rebuilt by the former first lady Imelda Marcos during the 1980's to help Filipinos appreciate their heritage and help the tourist to understand the history of the Spanish era itself.

When you enter this museum, the guard will informed you that you absolutely CAN NOT any picture in this museum. So put you camera inside your bag and lets yourself enjoy the beauty of the architecture and the story of The Casa Manila.

“Beautiful old house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The house is a typical Spanish-style house. It is well maintained and set up as a lovely museum. It is worth walking through if you're in the area.
