  • Asiana Airlines has been just trying to get in the car he saw incredible rain scrimp. Oh and went with the herd, a herd 200 pesos, or Republic of the Philippines who is said to be 400 pesos for a foreigner. A little expensive, but I feel there's not much wind, the exhibition management is broken down sections of the ground floor location. When I went on the first floor, was doing the same thing an invitation event, important events in the history of the Republic of the Philippines on the second floor with the doll exhibition, but the best. Were coming into the country is called the Republic of the Philippines country stars hit not tingling. Spain-related pictures and jeonsimuldo pictures and a small exhibit in the gift shop and the 3rd floor., small modern works and the old fabric was on display. The first floor has ceramic and gold products have been exhibited. Republic of the Philippines, people are not so delicate a helping hand, the old old days seemed pretty delicate hand with the Republic of the Philippines ... Right next to this park, garden and green belt can also eat rice stuck shopping. Well, this is the only ...

  • 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.
