Many things to see

Nice museum with my statues and wallpapers for Spanish era in The Phillipines. Multi stories with many long corridors and big halls with A/C. Nice garden.

First visit to Manila Philippines, hence the visit, a must see, I think there is an entrance change, Just check, I just paid where ever I went, also most foreigners have a visiting charge.

A good place to have a comprehensive history lesson of Manila. The others being Fort Santiago and Jose Rizal monument. I would recommend that visitors engage the service of a guide available at the museum entrance. There isn't any fixed fee but remember to reward a good tips if you are happy with the knowledge of the tour guide. Many... More

What a gem of a museum and a church. A real haven of peace and serenity in chaotic, noisy and hectic Manila. Spend several good and partly air-conditioned hours there. Great place to unwind

If you're like me who loves history, this is the place to be ! You will find things that will bring you back to the past, so beautiful and definitely authentic. No replicas. The whole place brings so much nostalgia, even the "catacombs", i did not feel any fright but rather curiosity. Who's who is buried there, and there's a... More

Visited the Museum of the Church of San Agustin this morning. It was a very interesting and informative visit and I was able to see historical artefacts and the gold and silver collection. Unfortunately there was a wedding going on in the church so my visit was limited. There is a separate entrance to the museum on the right hand... More

I used to pass San Agustin Church but havent been to the museum because I thought it was just a typical place. But when I toured Manila our German visitor I was obliged to bring him to San Agustin because he is a fan of architectures and history. I was amazed with the grandeur of the place. It was very...

Superb collection of religious and local artifacts. Maintained in excellent condition with a good description of each item. Large area many rooms to see. Leads into the church also. Clean safe environment. No wifi. Lots of staff. Gives you a feel of what the church was like 400 years ago.

This museum is in the grounds of San Agustin Church. If you're into Spanish history. this is the place to visit. The museum has beautiful paintings, old Spanish furnitures & carriages and souvenirs.
