I was sadly lacking in knowledge of the role Rizal played in Manilla's history. He was quite a guy and very enlightened for his time and place. Seems he still is a hero to people of Manilla.

I had never heard of Rizal so this little museum was very interesting. It is small but worth the 1/2 hour or so to learn more about the history of the Philippines.

I went here with my friends as one of our requirements in Rizal-- our subject in college. The area was spacious and great for a solemn feeling and waving back to the past. As we walk one by one, we stepped on Dr. Jose Rizal's shoeprint! That was awesome and honored at the same time! Must visit here with family!

The Phillipino people are rightly proud of their hero. He was a much travelled intelligent man who eventually was executed for his forward thinking. A great museum which informs of his life and ultimate death. Very moving and well organised
