Since I've visited the Ayala Museum numerous times, I didn't really plan on visiting it again. But then, i felt that there might be something fresh in Ayala after just seeing the Met Museum in Taguig that very same day. And i was right, they were having the exhibit of Juan Luna's long-lost masterpiece. While the exhibit was really fantastic, I always still enjoy the museum's standard stuff, especially the archaeological finds. Despite the somewhat hefty entrance, the museum is well worth a visit overall. I paid 650.00 at that time because there was an exhibition. Even so, I think it was well worth it. Will definitely return if they have interesting and cool exhibitions.

This museum went through a transition during Covid and is now presenting the arts and crafts of the Philippines in the best way possible.

What I love:
Four floors of well connected exhibits from precolonial Philippines to colonial Philippines and a general overview (diorama) at the end.

Touching, well written descriptions on the complexities of the Filipino culture.

Very senior citizen and disability friendly.

What could be better:
- Prepare a water station on the first floor

- Upgrade what's sold at the museum shop. Poor choices. I would suggest you visiting the Crocker Art Museum shop in Sacramento California or the Boston Tea Party Museum shop in Boston as museum shop inspirations ☺️

Booked and paid online thru Gcash which is very convenient. Theey are strict on the implemented schedule. Glad that we came in early . This bought us time since a staff wasn't aware of our booking and brought us to a room where they interview people or some sort. Stayed there for 5mins for nothing hadn't we decided to go out and ask somebody else. Got stressed a bit because of this.
The digital interactive gallery was interesting as well as the items in the museum itself. Ayala museum got interesting and rare painting collections. The gallery I liked was that of Fernando Zobel's.

The place is not hard to find and we were accommodated

Outstanding. One of the best museums I've been to! The dioramas provide a fantastic visual history and the gold display is beyond anything I expected. I now have a much stronger understanding of the history of The Philippines.

I have been to many cultural heritage displays in the Philippines, but this is the best one I've encountered. Very well done, clean, comfortable, excellent displays, good information, very informative and educational. Worth the visit for sure.

I always love to visit different kinds of museum. Ayala Museum a newly renovated museum is a treasure trove of exquisite artifacts from different eras of Philippine history. Definitely a go-to place for properly educating students about the richness of Philippine heritage and get their historical facts straight.

It was my second time visiting the museum. I was alone the 1st time but i asked a friend to join me the second time. We're still in awe at the Philippine golds that were excavated in Butuan. National Museum of Anthropology has a lot to offer as a whole (and it's free to visit) but the Ayala Museum is more secured from potential breach.
