The National Museum is a grand exhibit house that features the country's most historic works of culture and national heritage, including the paintings of heralded Philippine artists. It also houses important scientific artifacts that help tourists learn about the flora and fauna of the Philippines.

The Casa Manila Museum is a colonial lifestyle museum, which was patterned after a mid-19th century house that stood in San Nicolas, Binondo. The house is furnished with antiques from Europe and China and is a perfect example that shows the luxury of the Spanish occupation in Manila.

The Ayala Museum in Makati was built in December 1961. The museum provides 150,000 years of Philippines history, as well as diorama exhibits that depict important events in the Philippines struggle for independence. There are also many cultural artifacts on display.
