  • The Metropolitan Museum of Manila is a beachfront, next to the Central Bank of the Philippines. Is on two floors. On the ground floor there are exhibitions and you can photograph. Upstairs there is the permanent collection and it is forbidden to take photos. The entrance ticket costs 100 pesos. The current exhibition at the moment is dedicated to Elmer Borlongan, a Filipino artist depicting the same guy in different contexts (sporting, musical, etc ...) with shades of some interest. The upper floor houses contemporary works of art ranging from painting to sculpture the most classic to the most futuristic films and installations. Then there are oddities, such as a composition of giant insects climbing over a wall. All works that do not convey no emotion in the Viewer. A special thanks goes to Imelda Marcos that fostered the development of the avant-garde in this archipelago.
