Admission Is Free at Ayala Museum Next Weekend

It can get crowded.

( Year after year, we're always on the lookout for which museums in the Metro are having the grandest celebrations for International Museum Day. Ayala Museum in Makati City continues to live up to this annual tradition by offering free admission on May 19, from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Registration starts at 12 p.m.


International Museum Day was created by the International Council of Museums in 1977 in an effort to raise awareness about how museums are integral in the development of a society. For this year, the theme is "Museums as Cultural Hubs: The Future of Tradition," which highlights the role of museums in their respective communities.

Aside from opening all galleries for free on May 19, Ayala Museum is holding a free storytelling session for kids from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. and an art fair from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Museum-goers can enjoy food and drinks from Malagos Chocolate, The Dream Coffee, Make Peace Bakery, and Kayumanggi Organic in between exhibitions. Abiva Publishing House, and Center for Art, New Ventures, and Sustainable Development are also setting up shop during the afternoon event.

This may be the last time you'll get to visit the Ayala Museum for a while as they will be carrying out a year-long closure to make way for major renovations. 

The Ayala Museum is at Makati Avenue corner De La Rosa Street, Greenbelt Park, Makati City. For more information, visit Ayala Museum's website.
