Ayala Museum is located in the Makati Central Business District, and it is conveniently located in Greenbelt Mall, privately run by Ayala Foundation, Inc.
The museum houses ethnographic and archaeological exhibits on Filipino culture, art, and history. The sections on the history of the Philippines are very well done and worth spending some time. The collection of gold treasures at display is impressive, intricately designed and all hand made. It basically shows the importance of gold in the development of the Philippines. Best of all is the diorama collection depicting the history of the Philippines.
Apart from what is said above, the museum also showcases different exhibits which run only for a period of time that you won’t want to miss! The best way to know about the upcoming exhibits and events is to make sure that you sign up to their newsletter.
If you are into taking photographs, unfortunately, they do not allow it inside.
In conclusion, the Ayala Museum is very informative, interesting and insightful for the foreign visitors and Filipinos alike.
