(SPOT.ph) The year-long closure of the Ayala Museum for renovations officially starts this weekend, and they're certainly not going to go without a bang—even if it is just a temporary farewell. May 31 marks the last day of operations for the museum, and to give people a chance to check out the exhibits before they close, they have slashed their admission fee to P125.
Get your last look at Gold of Ancestors: Precolonial Treasure in the Philippines. A collection made up of around a thousand golden objects once used by our ancestors, it stands as testament to the rich and deeply rooted culture we had even before colonial rule.
Exhibits also not to be missed are the Millennium of Contact, with a diverse collection of ceramic objects from the Chinese and Southeast Asian trade dating back to the ninth century, and the Diorama Experience, which captures important moments from Philippine history in 60 dioramas made by artisans from Paete, Laguna.
"I will miss the way people react when they see the Gold [of Ancestors] and the dioramas for the first time," Miguel Acosta, Ayala Museum's senior marketing associate, tells SPOT.ph. In the meantime, they have an upcoming series of travelling exhibits and pop-up workshops dubbed Ayala Museum On-The-Go to look forward to. Perhaps, we'll get to see people respond to this project they way they did with the permanent exhibits.
The Ayala Museum is at Makati Avenue corner De La Rosa Street, Greenbelt Park, Makati City. For more information, visit Ayala Museum's website or their official Facebook Page.
