“rich history of the Chinese in the Philippines”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

A great place to appreciate how much the Chinese have influenced Philippines history and culture through its wax museum, artifacts, paintings, and the likes. Visited the museum twice already. The first one gave me preview on how many Filipinos / Chinese were killed during the Japanese occupation in the Philippines. The 2nd one showcased art work showing the Chinese serving the military in early war times. Definitely an eye-opening place.

“One of my favorite museums!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

Those with Chinese blood would love to come here and learn more about their history in a foreign land--the Philippines. Plus their visuals are very detailed and convincing. It's like a wax museum but with the complete set-up (like surroundings, houses back then, etc)

“What a Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2011

This has got to be one of the hidden gems of Intramuros and one of the best-made museums in the Philippines. I didn't expect it to be that good and informative. It reminded me of "Images of Singapore" at Sentosa.

The only thing which took me aback was the exhibition at the very top about the kaisa organisation.

Overall, pretty cool!
