Behold visual artistry spanning three centuries at the Yuchengco Museum as it exhibits the private collections of RCBC Chairman Alfonso T. Yuchengco. Showcased here is a vast anthology of visual art works from the 19th century to the present with the finest international as well as local, cultural, historical, and design exhibits and programs. Aimed at fostering art appreciation among the public, the museum first opened its doors in 2005 and has since attracted visitors as it brought fine arts near them, right at the heart of Makati City.
