  • 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...  more »

  • One of the best museums I've been to. They have an extensive collection of gold from our ancestors. You can see the gold collection closely and appreciate the intricate details and the way our ancestors made them. Picture taking is only allowed on ground and second floor. The Diorama collection is amazing. Definitely worth paying to visit this museum if you really want to learn and see more about our history.
  • You should bring some time for the many well presented exhibits. You can combine your visit with a shopping spree as the museum is located in the greenbelt complex with landmark and other malls. The museum gives you vivid insights into history and culture of the Philippines. It has also a gallery of contemporary art, including an artist from the Ayala oligarchs themselves. I especially liked the large ship models for their realism and detail and the dioramas made with utmost care and love.
