A little expensive but worth seeing. Makes you realise how connected the Philippines is to its neighbours. The handmade artworks are beautiful and well made. I enjoyed it

If you want to see excellent gold exhibit from a Philippine civilization that does not exist anymore, you cannot do better than this. The dioramas that show the history of the country, has been there since I was a school child and it is just as informative (for the illiterate) today as it was. The final room is a waste... More

I frequently go to Ayala Museum (Library). Access to Library is free to members and there are perks other perks too, like invites to museum sales and exhibits. The place is a good art hideaway, it's in the center of Makati CBD, near Greenbelt Malls. Curations are also impeccable. I just hope more people would be able to see the... More

It's a small museum but can fill up 3-6 hours of one's day, even more. It's nice and quiet and the lighting is perfect. The ground floor section usually has a beautiful exhibit which changes every few weeks/months.

Husband and I wanted to escape the afternoon sun for a few hours. After enjoying a coffee at the lovely cafe outside we headed into the Ayala Museum. Very glad we did. The museum is well laid out, with interesting exhibits that detail the Philippines interesting history and heritage. The gold exhibit was a particular highlight.

When you can afford a couple of hours in Makati, please consider wandering around in Ayala Museum. You will find it interesting as well as learning something new; the local culture, arts, and history. It is instrumental.

It's not a large museum, but you can spend hours learning about Manila here. We went to National Museum a few days before, but this had its own gems to share. It was very well kept. The shopping and M cafe right closeby was very convenient

A very good museum of art and history in the very center of the Makati Central Business District. The Diorama experience allows you to walk through the history of the Philippines in a sequential and logical manner. The Gold of Ancestors provides a very stimulating audio video presentation where viewers can sit a a small spherical theater which provides a... More

I am really amazed with all the collections that they have. Who would've thought that they were able to gather all those stuff. Every floor is worthy to visit. You will learn lot of things.

If you want to learn more about this country, the self guided tour on the 2nd floor will give you an insight. It is very educational.
