  • Beside the Church of San Agustin. It is a mansion of a wealthy Spain of old. It enters homes from buying a ticket in the Office. Will be told to walk on the red carpet. Furnishings from China at that time. The dining hall will be in the party and a long table remind us life Buri at that time. The kitchen carpet is not helpful, feel free to look at. The small estate suit bathrooms in the back. Toilet is unique. Two side by side, are perched. Homes, especially the description no even gone and look at the helpful. Souvenir shop attached and bringing stuff gotchas, it was chaos.

  • This small museum illustrates the life of Spanish colonists living in Manila. You can see the decoration of different rooms, get acquainted with household items, furniture, kitchenware, decoration of rooms. Curious to see how over the dinner table were equipped with large fans, which were in effect servants and create a pleasant breeze for gentlemen. Curious to see the Spanish collection of irons with coals on drying washed dishes and makeshift refrigerator for ice. Overall, a very interesting and curious spectacle. I advise you to look at.

  • Didn't really live up to my expectation. Very small museum. 30 minutes tops. But the maintenance of the building is good.  more »

  • I only visited the ground floor of this place. Even that is great for me. The garden is beautiful with small fountain. Too bad i didnt explore the whole area.
  • One of my favorite place in intramuros
  • Beautiful place. Certain area can't take photo. Bamboo bicycle so interesting.
  • Expected to more information on the place. The inner courtyard was nice.
  • Interesting to see how the colonialists lived. Not air conditioned but well ventilated and provides slight relief from the heat
