“Small, but decent collection”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

It's a nice break from the shopping area. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit, but if you have the time it is worth a quick visit. 2 hrs at most should get you through unless you have a real affinity for how pottery came to the Philippines.

“Small but excellent museum in Makati”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

This was a small museum but well worth the visit. It had many Aquino memorabilia. The Pilipino history was very interesting and the tour took about 2 hours.

“The history of the Philippines”
Reviewed January 12, 2012

Excellent multimedia presentation of the rise and fall of F. Marcos. The museum also displays excellent local artists. It is definitely worth the vist. The coffee shop/cafe is also a great place to stop in for a drink, snack or even a meal.

“Good place for History.”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

I especially enjoyed the Ninoy Aquino show here. This is a worthwhile stop to get a little enrichment of history of the Philippines.

“Well maintained, safe and one of the Philippines best collections.”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

Well maintained, safe and one of the Philippines best collections. This could not exist without the support of the Ayala family since cost of maintenance cannot be supported by tickets alone.
