  • This is an interesting museum with a diorama of the money and History of the Philippines. The entrance fee is high, but there are interesting exhibits.

  • Excellent museum to know the basics of Filipino history. The gold exhibition was really the highlight. Though I believe there are better works of art in India, the way everything is portrayed is interesting. The other floors have changing exhibitions and ceramic ware and fabrics and other things. The ceramic ware one was the least interesting. The gold in our viens on the ground floor was very well done. The amount of work went into displaying the art work was more than the art work itself. The ticket costs 225 for the residents and 425 for the tourists. But It is worth it.
  • So educational. One of my highlights on my Vacation to the Philippines. My wife and I really enjoyed the exhibit. The detailed history of the Phillipines was amazing. One of the best musicians I have ever visited. We loved seeing all the gorgeous gold pieces. So amazing and so detailed. I highly recommend you visit this museum.
