This is a non-profit center that feature the role of Chinese in the Philippines: the history, their contribution, prominent people, books, etc. There is a bookstore on the ground floor containing many books on the Chinese in the Philippines.

Bahay Tsinoy is a small museum situated within the walled city of Intramuros. It highlights the root history of the Filipino-Chinese, how they came to the Philippines and what their roll is to our country. Great mannequins and artworks depicting the lives of the Tsinoy in Old Manila. Very educational although the tour is very short yet expensive for a small museum.

Just average, compare it to other museum in Asia. There is a need to update and improve the system of the story. Nothing unusual, sound effects are not good either.

Situatated inside the walled city of Intramuros the Bahay Tsinoy is a museum cum classroom of sorts that showcases the history of the Filipino-Chinese or Tsinoy (Tsino at Pinoy). I was able to visit the center as part of my son's field trip group. I must say, I probably learned as much as he did - if not more. The dioramas, artifacts and installations detail their past as traders from the mainland, their time as outcasts living outside the walls, and eventual acceptance and rise in influence and stature in Philippine society. For those who truly want a deeper grasp of Philippine culture this is a place filled with insight. I cannot fully explain but i promise that you'll understand when you see it for yourself. We do not simply have a Chinatown with Filipino-Chinese immigrants. Our modern society has been influenced by China as much as Spain, and the USA. Bahay Tsinoy chronicles that journey.

It's not Philippines 101 but for those who want to learn more. Pay this "house" a visit.
