Beautiful building that houses a variety of pieces and displays. You could spend two days here exploring all the different levels. Best to focus of the type of displays that interest you the most if you are time poor.

This is one of the must see Museums in the Philippines. Entrance is Free. No Selfie Sticks. No big Bags/Backpacks. If you do decide to bring a bag, it shouldn't be bigger than a piece of A4 paper. The building is air conditioned. The paintings...More

Spoliarium is the accent of the museum aside from the roman style of the building. The wide collection of the paintings , best viewed in the upper level are also a good to see.

Its impressive as usual. The collections are world class. Facilities are clean, Staffs are strict but easy to approach. Admission is free at the time of our visit. The building and displays are camera worthy. I will definitely visit this place again.

i've been to the national museum a few times already and though I enjoyed most of it, maybe they could inject other means to entertain the audiences using other modes of technology.
