Afternoon at The Ayala Museum

Aloha Everyone,

The Ayala Museum has excellent exhibits of archaeological, ethnographic, historical, numismatic and ecclesiastical collections.

We were eager to revisit the museum after its two-year renovation. Entry fee to the museum was 350 pesos per person US$6.37. You are allowed to take photos unless photography of the displays is specifically prohibited.

One of the most impressive and educational features of the museum was the section of the 60 dioramas depicting the history of the Philippines. This is truly a monumental legacy of Fernando Zobel (1924-1984), one of my favorite Spanish-Filipino artist and scholar.

After spending 2 1/2 hours, I was reluctant to leave.

Aloha -- Cathi
