    I didn't know Dolphy's monument stands here! What a surprise. Been a while walking the busy streets of Manila. Museo Pambata has been a good place to let your inner child wander... from then till now :)

    Good place to bring the kids. I wish upkeep was better. Some of the exhibits are in bad repair the last time I visited. For Manila residents there is a discount on the entrance fee.

    It's a great place for kids, they can learn about a bit of everything... Philippine culture, historical Manila, music instruments, insects, medicinal plants, the human body and more. There is also a small outdoor playground. It has a lot of hands on activities for kids, and the prices at the gift shop are reasonable.

    Great place to bring young kids to learn and explore different activities. Very kid friendly place. Best time to go is weekdays. Parking are available in front of the building.

    The place is very educational for children! The place really improved! There are different sections you can visit: Spanish era, plants and herbs, human body, etc. Adults will also enjoy the place :)

Where to stay in Manila

Manila has the full spectrum of hospitality options, from highly affordable hostels you can book on the spot to luxury four- and five-star resorts. Opt to stay in mid-range and upscale hotels clustered around the central business district, or score sea views at the resorts facing Manila Bay.
