San Agustin Museum - Review
Originally a monastery up until 1604, the San Agustin Museum stands on the remnants of the dreaded war of 1945. The first sight that greets visitors as they enter this beautiful museum is the giant bell that weighs about 3000 kg. The museum holds a treasure of artefacts, statues and other objects of interest from the Church history. There are some precious paintings that are part of the ground floor exhibit along with the gorgeous Aztec frescoes that adorn the ceiling. Visitors can also see the holy clothing and biblical books that have been used by priests over the century. The museum sheds light over many interesting facts about the magnanimous San Agustin Church.

San Agustin Museum, Manila Reviews
If you are going on an old Manila walk or a cultural trip in Intramuros, then you have to visit this church. The place is very solemn and you can feel the holiness of the place. You can attend the mass or just pray silently here. The ceilings were painted with artworks which definitely are a piece worth preserving. There is also a museum here and restaurants nearby. Since the place is inside Intramuros, you'll feel like time stopped for a moment to keep the memories of the Spanish era here. I suggest that if you are going to take photos, do it quietly so that you won't disturb others inside the church. 😊 Also, not because you are tourists, you won't observe proper church attire anymore.
If your visiting Manila, you can not ignore the San Agustin Church, it should be on your bucket list to visit. The outside of the church is beautiful, but the true beauty is located inside the church. As of March 2018, the cost was only $4 U.S. to enter the museum portion of the church. When you enter the church, incredible paintings, carvings, sculptures and various other forms of artwork & history will be in your eyes. I am sure that you wont regret with remarkable, beautiful and unique structure.
We were married in this church 27 years back. Today we needed to secure copy of our marriage certificate for a couples retreat. It did not take us 15 mins of wait at p50 per copy. The office area is clean and organized. People courteous and efficient. And amenities well managed.
I visited this church as part of the Carlos Celdran old Manila walk, so I did not visit the museum store. None the less I found the interior beautiful, and its exterior interesting with its mix use of architecture elements.
