Art Museum
“Best-kept museum I've so far been to in the Philippines - maybe because of its comparably limited space, its modern design, and brilliant exhibit lay-out. The only downside may be that the staff isn't readily available, and that the museum is not exactly the place to tour vacationers around especially if they are disabled or are really looking to bring home souvenirs. But it is, in general, a good museum to visit for their well-curated content, especially if you don't mind exploring solo.”
