  • Learn More About Philippine History With Ayala Museum’s Online Resources
  • Philippine History is comprised of a complex and multilayered past. Stories of wars and victories, cultures and languages that are either extinct or continually in flux, are contained in preserved artifacts, historical documents, sound recordings, and photographs.

    Museums are, in a way, a form of a memory landscape — a concrete structure that allows us to revisit the past. Ayala Museum, among other local museums, houses some of the country’s most important historical objects. While museums are traditionally visited, Ayala Museum has adapted to the digital platform by establishing Ayala Museum On-The-Go (Ayala Museum OTG) last year.

    Currently, as the enhanced community quarantine has been extended until April 30, Ayala Museum announced that the public can still explore Philippine History at home through their Online Resources.
