By: DirectWithHotels Ltd
1. National Museum
Being the country's official repository, the National Museum houses the most impressive collection of ethnographic, archaeological, and historical artifacts that depict Philippine history and culture. Here, you can find a total of 1,032 visual art pieces composed of paintings, sculptures, and icons.
2. Museo Marino
With the combined efforts of the Associated Marine Officers' and Seamen's Union of the Philippines (AMOSUP) and All Japan Seamen's Union (JSU), Museo Marino in Malate was built to pay tribute to the works of seafarers. The museum's highlight is the walls of seafarer chronicles, which are built from the life stories of AMOSUP members.
3. Escolta Museum
Established in 1938, this museum placed at the mezzanine of Calvo Building showcases the affluent heritage of Escolta, which was known as the Philippines' Western Emporium at the turn of the century. Here, you'll be impressed with the displays of aged photographs and old newspaper articles that mirror the grandeur of this historical street.
4. Museo Pambata
Whether spending a vacation in a budget hotel or a 5-star accommodation in Manila with kids, you should not miss the various attractions that can be found in Museo Pambata. Situated along Roxas Boulevard, this educational site features interactive exhibits that require children's involvement in exploring and discovering various concepts while they play.
5. Casa Manila
Casa Manila is actually one of the grand houses built in the walled city of Intramuros during the Spanish regime. It is located across the equally invaluable San Agustin Church. This edifice epitomizes the house of an ilustrado (a rich Filipino) in the late 19th century.
