A must do to learn more about Filipino history

Centrally located, this museum was a perfect way to start the day. The Museum Cafe was also great, but a little pricey. Get the Audio Guide for the museum as it is very well done!

This museum is very high quality. The price is a bit high for Manila but it is a first class place. The gold exhibit was amazing and the 40 dioramas displaying key moments in history of the Philippines was interesting. It is a great and easy way to get introduced to the history of the Philippines. This museum is very... More

There are several art works plus you can see the history of the Philippines at the diorama. Its a bit pricey for the locals.

The Filipino Gold and precious stones display through the pre Spanish to modern times is well worth a visit

The scope of the museum's collection and coverage of the Philippine culture has been encompassing through the years. What started out for me as a requisite elementary field trip has become an ongoing tale of where the Filipino has been and where he wants to go into the future. The administration of the museum has to be commended for doing... More

Took a tour through the museum. It is on 4 floors and gives you a great insight to the history of the country. Only takes an hour or so to see all the displays.

Entry layout is confusing. Interior is depressing. No aesthetics. We were dismayed with the presentation we decided not to complete the visit. Who is running this place?

This museum is definitely worth a look if you're staying in the Makati area. The section dealing with modern Filipino history is particularly interesting. I wish could have spent longer but I had rush off to meet some family members.

A must see if you are curious about the history of the Philippines. Amazing, extensive and highly detailed diorama explains the story from prehistory to the present day.

We went here as part of a shore excursion. This is a very nice museum and we were there for about 2.5 hours. Much longer than the tour had originally allowed but there was a lot to see. There is beautiful collection of of 1000 gold relics. The history of the Philippines is also captured in 60 dioramas which helps... More
