Yuchengco Museum, Makati

3.2
The Yuchengco Museum opened its doors to the public in September 2005. Its primary goal is to foster a greater public appreciation of art through the finest international as well as local, cultural, historical, and design exhibits and programs. Located in Makati, the heart of Metro Manila’s financial district, the Museum is not only a “temple” that showcases art, but also a “forum” of exchange, debate, and education.

The Museum was created to house the art collection of Ambassador Alfonso T. Yuchengco, and highlight his distinguished career as a businessman, diplomat, collector, philanthropist, patron of the arts, and advocate for education in the Philippines and beyond.

  • A nice place to see while waiting on the Embassy, lots of cultural sights and intake m8s. Plenty of food shops around and a very nice place to to spend the day.  more »
  • There are much better museums to go to in Philippines, much bigger and less boring. This museum is very small and doesn't have a lot of things inside of it. Overall, waste of time.  more »
  • We walked to this museum. The entrance is inside another building. There is a big display outside the museum, of a tank, priests and people. We couldn't see the explanation. Inside there were 3-4 floo...  more »

  • Cool little place to spend an afternoon. The entry fee is ULTRA affordable at 100 pesos. The place was mostly empty so I was able to enjoy a lot of neat pieces without anyone else around. I would've liked to see a few more CONTEMPORARY pieces in the gallery but I appreciated the exhibitions on Jose Rizal and Amorsolo. It was yet another opportunity to learn a bit about my ancestors and my culture.
  • Nice little museum put together by the former ambassador Yuchengco. The man got around. Pictures of all the people he met in his time are to be seen like Yasser Arafat, the Dali Lama and Tony Blair. Good exibits of largely modern art are displayed throughout the 4 floors. Takes about 2-3 hours to see everything and doesn't cost a whole lot to get in. Tends to be pretty quiet as well.
  • It's a small museum with nice collections. The entrance fee is cheap and the location is very accessible to those working in Makati. Recommended when you want to spend a quiet afternoon or pass time.
  • Small, nothing special unless you're an "artist" friend or family of whoever owns the museum. Few items worth looking at. Visit when entry fees are waived, otherwise you're better off spending a few hours at the National Museum.
  • This building is one of the busiest place in Makati as it housed a few embassy, a theater, a school, a chapel and a lot of different offices, of course aside from the bank that bears the same name. Free parking for the bikers. A lot of good restaurants at the 3rd floor. Fitness first also have a branch here. I like the cute beagle service dog that ensures our safety.
