The San Agustin Museum was our featured museum in April 2014. It is a peaceful place with an interesting architecture, and the extension of the San Agustin Church. Each exhibit in the museum showcases a different part of the history and of the Catholic faith, and how it influenced the lives of the Filipino people through the years. It is amazing how they managed to preserve the paintings and other items in the exhibits.

Taking pictures and videos is not allowed inside the galleries. You can take pictures of the paintings/exhibits along the hallways, just check the signs.

We have been there several times, and we’d like to go back to this place again. Every tourist must visit this place.

During that time (April 2014), second floor galleries were closed because of the ongoing renovations, so we didn’t get to take pictures and see the new collections and installations. I just don’t know if they have finished the renovation already, but feel free to go and check it. I assure you, it is worth your visit and every penny you paid, whether you’re a Catholic or not.

Went here yesterday with my friends because I was so curious about this museum.

Entrance fee is 100.

The museum's so big. It has two floors. There are exhibit rooms in some parts of it and no one's allowed to take photos inside. The exhibit rooms are great. We were able to see the history of the Filipino churches. Most of what we saw inside were made of ivories.

And of course, it's great to take photos in the museum because of its vintage-y interior structure. 128517

I took a panorama shot of a part of the second floor so whoever will read this would have an idea of what it looks like 128517

The San Agustin Museum is housed in the former monastery right beside the San Agustin Church.

The original monastery was constructed along with the stone church structure and became fully operational in 1604. It was totally destroyed during the American bombing of 1945 and was later rebuilt in the 1970s and was converted in 1973 to become a repository of religious artifacts and art treasures dating back to the 16th century.

Their collection is quite extensive and one can get an insight on the general mindset of Filipinos at the time, just by closely looking at the appearance and physical characteristics of the religious items. Cool, right?

The museum is open daily from 8am to 12nn, and from 1pm to 6pm. Entrance fees are PhP100 for adults, PhP80 for senior citizens and PWDs, PhP40 for children.

It might be far, and there is no direct way to the museum via public transport, and parking may be a huge problem, but the travel is worth it.
