Makati is the the upper neighbourhood of Manila and Ayala Museum is just right for its locals, however, while the better international hotels and shopping malls are almost adjacent to it, Ayala Museum is the place to escape from the hassle of Manilla.

This is a small music, collection of historical photos, few elements to discover and to better understand local history. It was a Sunday when we visited it... the only people in there. Definitely calm and good to enjoy, with no rush and our won time.

We generally enjoyed nicely curated displays at Ayala Museum. We only found it quite overpriced. In comparison, we found the Anthropological Museum that is completely free of charge and much bigger more informative and educative for both foreigners and Filipinos.
