Sight Seen : Manila Tour - Ayala Museum

Manila - Ayala Museum

This gleaming museum features four floors of superbly curated exhibits on Filipino culture, art and history. At the heart of the collection is a brilliant exhibit consisting of 60 dioramas that succintly, yet effectively, trace the nation’s history, which kids will also love. The collection of pre-Hispanic gold jewellery and objects is another highlight with some exquisite pieces. The museum’s rotating art exhibits tend to showcase Filipino masters such as Luna and Amorsolo, and occassionally international shows such as Yayoi Kusama.
Guided tours (P100) of the museum are highly recommended; book one week in advance. Audioguides (P75) are also available.
