National Museum, Manila Reviews

  • Kahit di ka artist you will enjoy this museum. Grabee sobrang ganda ang maappreciate mo yung mga artworks. Mapapa wow ka na lang talaga sa gawa ng mga national artist natin. This are some photos na nacapture ko thru phoness. Pinaka favorite ko yung Spolarium. And yung sobrang laki ng isang painting di ko matandaan yung name nun pero super maamaze kayo kapag nakita nyo. Mas marami pa dyan yung mga makikita mo kung pupuntahan mo. Dont worry admition is free.

  • Never miss the chance to visit National Museum of Arts, the admission is free but the museum is closed during Mondays. Upon depositing your baggage, the famous painting of our Philippine artist Juan Luna the Spoliarium will welcome you with its majestic beauty. A wide variety of art works will astonish you. You can capture photos, but make sure to turn off the flash as it is strictly prohibited. Avoid making to much noise as some people are also making an intimate tour through the arts and history. Food and water are not allowed inside. Parking is not enough, so if you are going on a weekend be be there early. Admission is free and no ID needed.

  • Great place to see the precious gems of the Philippines in the fine arts. Free of charge, so everyone is invited. The place is big but it's like a labyrinth, you keep on going back to places you've been. The building itself is marvelous,grand and exquisite. My favorite part of the museum is the Spolarium by Juan Luna, I got goosebumps seeing it in person.

  • The Philippines National Museum really amazed me. The place is well air conditioned to preserve the paintings and other works of art. This is a must visit. I feel like a tourist in my own country. This is truly world class.

  • Why I gave 4 stars? Here's why: Eye worthy: Whether you love art or not, whether you understand abstract beauty or not, it is a great experience to visit National Museum because of its history right in front of your eyes. Time worthy: Once in your life, make sure to visit a museum, and what's the best museum to visit here in the Philippines is the National Museum. Money worthy: I was able to visit National Museum in March and right on time it was National Women's Month, so I got to enter free. So watch out for National Museum's promos like this.
