This is well worth a visit and a PHP200 fee. There are 2 stories of relics, furniture, art, and a thorough explanation of the OSA order.

Set in a lovely building attached to the church, with an idyllic courtyard, this museum is well laid out and informative. There was plenty of information in English detailing the history from the arrival of the Spanish missionaries in the 1500s through to the destruction of Manila in 1945. Some of the rooms are air conditioned to protect the artifacts... More

I wish more people would visit the San Agustin Museum. It's probably the best place to see the widest collection of ecclesiastical art from the 16th to the 19th centuries. There are beautiful examples made by craftsmen from all over the Philippines. The setting -- the old cloister of the church and the various rooms are also not to be... More

Historical and religious heritage of the Philippines can be found at the San Agustin Museum. It has a great collection of artifacts and religious images on exhibit. Truly educational!

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.

It was named a National Historical Landmark by the Philippine government in 1976. The San Agustin Church is patterned after some of the magnificent... More
