  • Nice place that is quick side and easy to traverse. I really like it and I enjoyed the art exhibit like abstract art galleries and the statues outside in front. Also visual history of the Phillippines
  • Beautiful place. Considering the location, I was not sure what to expect but it turned out to be one awesome place to understand the real roots of the Filipino people. It's a must go place for tourist
  • It's nice but the guides want us to move very quickly.
  • My wife and I visited Ayala Museum on 13 December 2013. We paid to visit all floors (from 4th floor down). Although there are things that some people enjoy (gold, ceramics, art), we didn't enjoy. We enjoyed the 2nd floor with great visual history of the Philippines. Our suggestion is pay for 2nd floor only. No cameras allowed.
  • Don't miss this one! Don't be shy about paying the extra fee to see the gold exhibit on the fourth floor. It is worth the price of admission.
