I truly appreciate a museum with mixes of different forms of art. This museum houses not only creations by renowned painters but also installation arts and sculptures. Even the doors and some of the fixtures in the museum have been created by artists. I remember a specific door (it has a beautiful texture to it) to a Chinese calligraphy exhibit.... More

Fascinating museum with a mix of good things. First you have the exhibit that explains who the Yuchengco family is and also gives history of Rizal. There are some more modern artists displayed throughout - both paintings and architecture. Parts of the exhibit looks temporary and though the paintings were beautiful, the walls and the rooms where they're displayed look... More

Starts at the top and works its way down. Other than the top floor, rotating exhibits of featured artists. Best were the contemporary prints.

This museum is not super large, but - to me - it combines the best of what you might find in several other art museums in the region. That combination would be: a sampling of contemporary art that is thoughtful and of high quality and well-presented; a base resource of historical collection showing filipino Masters; a bookstore worth browsing; an...

Yuchengco Museum I considered it a state of the art. The building itself is one of a kind plus the interior is unique. They also have theaters not so huge however perfect for conferences and conventions.

On a recent visit, we saw this as our taxi drove by on Ayala Avenue. We decided to make a visit one morning. Security was surprisingly high for this building: our taxi had to go through inspection before we were allowed to disembark. Outside the museum was a large group statue, which probably has a political message that escaped me.... More

The Yuchengco Museum is pretty small, but packs quite a bit in terms of content. Drop by to see some of the permanent exhibits like the Rizal gallery on the 4th floor, which houses some pretty interesting material on Rizal and the women in his life. It’s worth it to drop by if only to see the stunning Orlina piece... More

The art in the museum is from the private collection of Yuchengco so it's interesting and eclectic. Definitely worth the time if you want to see a good cross section of Filipino art. Unfortunately, much of the art hasn't been cared for well so it is fading or otherwise being impacted by the passage of time.

Museum is very small. The fourth floor has a small section on Jose Rizal and the rest of the floor is about the Yuchengco family. One floor had a Samsung exhibit. Other floors have a few paintings. Not much to see. Cannot recommend going.
