The Ayala Museum was opened in 1967, under the Ayala Foundation, and has since shifted homes and now formally resides in a granite, steel and glass building designed by Leandro V.Locsin.

A collection of items that tell you the rich history of Philippines, its inspiring growth in the past and the contemporary art in the days long gone. An amazing exhibit of 60 dioramas that aptly describe and take you through the nation’s history, this is a favourite among the children too. Furthermore, there is a collection of Hispanic jewellery and some exquisite items that are placed on the museum’s unique rotating exhibit.
