Widely considered to be one of the most important cultural institutions in the Philippines, the Ayala Museum was conceived by abstract painter Fernando Zobel. He originally envisioned a museum of history and iconography (and it still functions on both of those levels), yet it eventually developed into a fine arts museum of international renown.

Conveniently located in Markati (part of Metro Manila, one of the most populous metropolitan areas in the world), its collections of art, gold jewelry, historical dioramas, maritime vessels, and many other displays are dazzling and sure to impress. While visiting, plan on taking in some restorative sustenance amid the blissful ambiance of the M Café, which is located on the ground floor. It’s a perfect place to have lunch and a glass or cup of something stimulating before embarking on a further exploration of the museum. Complete with a Zen garden and a beautiful conference center, the Ayala Museum is a wonderful place for both cultural and historical education.
