We entered this museum in a nice light rainy day, so it was our shelter from the rain. Tickets then start watching many statues and wallpaper for the common history among both countries. Third floor is a video show with a famous wallpaper: I am Filipino ... Nice place we enjoyed it.

It was raining but still there was a man outside the museum handing out leaflets. I went back later and discovered this treasure of a museum. The Chinese community in Manila is prosperous but insecure, a privileged minority. Many times, they keep quiet and get on with their business. Yet, there is much to be proud of in their history...

Hard to beat this immersive museum. It's a must-see again & again every time I visit this part of the world. A reminder to the museum to update some information such as adding the date of death of some people such as Cory Aquino, etc.

The exhibits are awesome, lifelike and in great details depicting their life, struggles, prosecutions and their profoundly significant contributions to the Philippines' industry, economy, culture, language and more. Very enlightening.

The exhibits are very detailed giving a clear picture of the various roles of the Chinese in ancient times. It is also of interest to note that famous people like Jose Rizal, Cardinal Sin, Cory Aquino and... More

I visited the place a long time ago as part of our field trip. I can say that the place is well preserved. You can't take pictures inside.

I enjoyed the visit here because of the museum guide, he explained each area of the museum well. You can see how passionate he is with the history :) Being a Filipino-Chinese, I further understood our history here in the Philippines.

I have heard of this place several years ago but never bothered to check it out. It was because of my visiting cousin's prodding we decided to go to this place.
