This museum was great! It was well organized, beautifully done, and really showcased the history of the city. It is not just religiously focused, either-with science, art, and other secular sections. The church, however,is lovely! It is well worth the time, especially on a rainy day.

I didn't know about San Agustin Museum until I got to visit Intramuros with a friend who wanted to experience a Manila tour. It was a good fun surprise for me to find out that there is a treasure chest of Filipino history hidden within the walls of San Agustin Church. This is a must-see when you come to Manila.

Very interesting museum of church history and artifacts. During a business visit we had a couple hours of sightseeing. After a late lunch / early dinner we found the San Augustin church, which by itself is a visit worth the time. However, don't leave the church without visiting its museum. All art is related to the people of the church... More

Place is filled with historical facts about the introduction of Christianity in the Philippines. Located next to San Agustin Church home of Sto.Nino. Quiet place perfect for people who want to meditate.

San Agustin Church is a Roman Catholic church located inside the historic walled city of Intramuros in Manila. The original structure on which this stands was built in 1571. Visit to the San Agustin Church is a must see. This beautiful church has survived seven earthquakes and two fires over the centuries and now remains as the oldest stone church... More
