The diaoramas are the most interesting introduction to the history of the Philippines. The models of the ships are fascinating.

It's very unfortunate that pre hispanic Philippines has not been highlighted during my History classes in Gradeschool. Probably because artifacts are hard to discover. What is fortunate is that the top floor (4th) of ayala museum celebrates this fact :)

The mussuem is situated right near the Greenbelt shopping Centre. I found their gold section on the top floor intersting. Provides a backdrop to the country's traditions and culture. The ceramics on the lower floors did not tickle my interest,

Before beginning your travels throughout the Philippines take in this remarkable museum. You will get a sense of the history and culture and a feeling for the many people who have inhabited these islands.

Highlight of the museum has to be the 4th floor gallery displaying discovered ancient gold artefacts. The 4kg gold rope sash is spectacular as are the details on a few of the other pieces on display. Unfortunately the art gallery was not open as it...More
