Art galleries were so unique! Very different to others! I must say it is a one stop shop for the history of the philippine treasures! Golds, pottery etc!

Impressed with the way the start/entrance to the Ayala museum at the 4th floor, starting with the video of the pre-colonial Philippines. A must visit place.

Great place for an indoor family outing, especially when the kids (behaved kids) have studied abroad and are not as exposed to Philippine culture and heritage. Even for adults who wants to refresh their cultural and arts background. Great place for arts, exhibit events. Bathroom...More

The place is small but yet it just delivered. Amazing showcase of talents. Those dioramas and miniature were beautiful you should definitely check it out.

This is a great museum for the dioramas! Must do the audio for all the effects and history. There is a weekly schedule of events that you may enjoy. It's set between the malls of Greenbelt and Glorietta for dining and shopping.

You'll find here a display of the Philippines' pre-colonial treasures located on the 4th floor (not allowed to take pictures). There is a shop on 2nd floor, got my self a coffee table book. It's a great experience to visit a modern museum.
