It's better to come early on weekends to avoid the long lines. We had fun gawking at the pieces of Juan Luna. It's like his ancient IG page. We also like Ben Cab and Amorsolo.

When we checked the prices of the entrance fee at some blogging site, it was really costly, since me and my friends are just scholars and would just want to have a look at our very own national museum. So we weren't sure if we are still to visit. Until, one of us checked their website and saw the student... More

Two floors of Filipino art, some dating back as far as about 150 years ago, and some contemporary art. It's definitely one of Manila's better museums / galleries. It's of a high standard, but it's obviously not as vast as those you would find in Europe. Entry is free, and there's enough to keep you occupied for an hour. If... More

Great place to see classic art works (painting and sculptures) by Luna, Amorsolo, Manansala, and other national artists. The Spoliarium is extremely awe inspiring not only due to the physical size of the painting but more so due to the history surrounding it and the artist. The old session hall brings us back to the beginnings of the Philippine republic.... More

A Philippine treasure. A must see for all natives. Good museum, but needs further artifacts to be top-notch. I still enjoyed the visit.

Now the entrance fee of the National Museum is free, the public can now marvel to the artistry of the Filipino people. The Solarium is very imposing painting. The area is educational and enjoyable at the same time.Perfect for students

A rare opportunity to see the works of the Filipino masters under one historic building. It made me appreciate Filipino culture even more. My teenage niece and I loved the experience.

I saw/read photos and articles about the national museum on social media, so I decided to visit one Sunday. In a city that’s mostly known for traffic, malls, and nightlife, venues promoting the arts, culture, and history are a breath of fresh air. The national museum’s impressive art collection is massive and very well-curated. The staff is very professional and... More
