Each city has its own space dedicated to showcasing curated art and historical pieces to educate citizens while taking them on a unique cultural experience. One of the must-visit spots in Makati City, for instance, is Ayala Museum. With its variety of historical collections and masterpieces from bygone eras, the museum guarantees a glimpse of the Philippines in yesteryears unlike any other.
