The San Agustin Museum was the featured museum in April 2014. It is a peaceful place with an interesting architecture, and the extension of the San Agustin Church. Each exhibit in the museum showcases a different part of the history and of the Catholic faith, and how it influenced the lives of the Filipino people through the years. It is amazing how they managed to preserve the paintings and other items in the exhibits.
Taking pictures and videos is not allowed inside the galleries. You can take pictures of the paintings/exhibits along the hallways, just check the signs.
We have been there several times, and we’d like to go back to this place again. Every tourist must visit this place.
During that time, second floor galleries were closed because of the ongoing renovations, so we didn’t get to take pictures and see the new collections and installations. I just don’t know if they have finished the renovation already, but feel free to go and check it. I assure you, it is worth your visit and every penny you paid, whether you’re a Catholic or not.
