Cute place that is small and easy to traverse. Really enjoyed the art exhibit and the statues outside in front. Also the diorama section gave great insight into Philippines history from the beginning. Educational for sure!

A concise and interesting history of the Philippines with a Gold Vault and a really nice collection of Chinese porcelain. Very much worth a visit. Excellent cafe attached as well.

Worth going - needs maybe an hour, an interesting museum for its small size. History dioramas & footage re Benigno Aquino are highlights, but haven't been changed in a while.
