Admit it, whenever one is being asked of “What to See” or “Where to Go” in Manila, museums would take the bottom part of the list. I don’t know but even I, myself, find it boring whenever I hear the word “Museum”. Maybe, I fear that I’ll have information overload, that I’ll get suffocated; that museums are just for intelligent people… hmmm… okay enough of that.

Again, this 14-year-old-brother-of-mine is having some addiction recently. And guess what? He’s been enjoying and getting passionate about museums. At first, it was quite weird for me, but hey, he made me realize that museums now are different. The glow in his eyes every time he talks about that little stuff he saw in a museum makes me want to see it myself.

So let me share you some cool must-visits museums around Manila. Yes, they’re just around the metro, so, no need to think about any Manila airfares, long bus rides, or whatever. (And yes they’re not your ordinary “Please-Fall-in-Line-Silence-Only-Please-Hands-at-Your-Back-Experience”).

  1. Maybe you can also include the Metropolitan Museum of Art at the back of the BSP Complex along Roxas Boulevard. I am not sure how much they charge now. It was still free when we went there, which was a long, long time ago. They also have a money museum there.

    @ eileen of Possibly Pinay,

    Ay, oo nga noh. I forgot to include that famous storytelling of Kuya Bodjie. Naku, kailangan mo ng dalhin yung baby mo dun. 🙂

    Yup, I BADLY NEED TO GO TO THAT MIND MUSEUM TOO… been hearing a lot about it.

  3. Chasing Philippines on

    @ Batangala,

    Oh, thanks for that info. Havent heard about that Metropolitan Museum of Art before. Ang naririnig ko lang before is 'Metropolitan Theater' hehe

    Hope wala pa rin syang bayad or at least minimal fee lang para mas accessible sa karamihan

In addition, we evaluated each brewer’s ease of use, including how easy it was to read and use the controls, access the water tank and brew basket, read the markings on the tank and carafe, whether or not it had automatic keep warm and shut off cycles, and the ease of cleaning the carafe.

    to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thank you!
