  • Anyway the Museum while window shopping in the Mall and head to a landmark department store Makati Central territory of the Ayala conglomerate Ayala museum breaks with its name to peep. In tourist-friendly, through the history of the Philippines can be reached. It's not okay to go ahead once the time there may be disappointed and just expect too much?

  • 425 pesos entrance fee was not instead guide radio with 500 pesos paid is satisfactory. I'm not sure why such a high rating?. Sunday was almost empty. 1 when there are tired of monotony. Enjoy the atmosphere is like a Museum, museum visits, but only if you're in Nice is not am I?

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • I liked it. Maybe a bit pricey if you pay the full price for Admission. Make sure to have your ARC or student ID for discounts.
  • This musuem is a must see. It consists of 4 floors. The 6 floor has a small library open to researchers. It has a rich &impressive collection of gold exhibition that is clearly cataloged and described,very informative . Floor 2&3 depict Philippens history under both the Spanish and American. The traditional customs and dresses is also depicted in an attractive and innovative manner. The first floor has a painting exhibition when we visited .quite interesting. Admission fee is  rather high compared to other musuems Ph425 e.g.$8.5 but remain realy reasonable for such a rich and well presented collection
  • I really enjoyed the visit, many floors. My favourite by far was the diorama that condenses the history into some key stories and images. Well worth he visit then grab some lunch in one of the many restaurants in the attached mall.
