Ayala Museum

Ayala Museum adds an artistic badge to the central hub of Makati's posh malls, luxury condos, and corporate towers. Located between Greenbelt 4 and 5, the museum boasts sleek yet clean interiors, and a distinguished exterior. The lobby was wide and cozy. I paid Php225 for Adult Resident rate. Foreigners pay the top fee of Php425, while local students and senior citizens need to fork over Php125.

Photos are strictly not allowed on the 4th floor. This would be the Gold Exhibit. I think 3rd floor also has a No-Photograph policy, but am not totally certain.
Exhibit featuring various robes worn by priests.
Museum Shop. Here you can find rare books, reading, photographs related to history, I presume.
Doorway leading to other parts of the museum near Greenbelt 4.
Fountain outside the museum, corner Makati Avenue and Dela Rosa Streets.

Photography is allowed at the Diorama Exhibit.
Measure up with our country's prominent people in history.

  • All in all, I considered it a productive day. Nothing beats learning something new (or old) about our country and the challenges of the past. 
  • Interesting diorama setups, very detailed and lively.
  • There's always something serene and delightful about museums. The way every piece is presented with a soft spotlight amplifies the importance that's due.
  • If you've got a free hour or two in Greenbelt, spend it inside the Ayala Museum. It's a shift in perspective at the least.
