Highlight of the museum has to be the 4th floor gallery displaying discovered ancient gold artefacts. The 4kg gold rope sash is spectacular as are the details on a few of the other pieces on display. Unfortunately the art gallery was not open as it...More

Costs $475 pesos as a tourist. Seniors need photo ID to get the discounted rate of $300 pesos. We only had 1.5 hours there and it was too short! Each exhibit is well thought out. The gold section incredible, textile section small but informative and...More

We didn’t visit inside the museum. We just took photos in front of it. It is also attractive. Hope you can enjoy too.

A small museum, low cost entry fee, clean, uncrowded, and worth the time and money. I greatly appreciated the diorama exhibit on floor 2. It will take some time to wander through the 50+ dioramas. As a first time visitor to the Philippines, I loved...More

We had a British friend who wanted to visit a museum and since the National Museum was too far from where we were, we decided on a whim to go to Ayala. They also close at 6pm, so that factored into the decision. The tickets...More

I love this place, been here several times. Allot about 3-4 hours to fully enjoy the museum, specially if you want to listen to (all) the diorama. My niece and nephew were both amazed as it has presented Philippine history in a very interesting way....More

I like their carefully curated exhibits. Each floor shows different facets of Philippine history and culture. I especially appreciated the dioramas and model ships. My son could not stop reading and exploring!
