Museo Ng Makati


Down by the river, the Museo Ng Makati is a classic old Manila house from the 1800s (look for the capiz-shell windows). Inside are some great photos of old Makati and murals of past mayors, among other exhibits. These days it's usually used for art exhibitions and other events. Check the Facebook page of gallery Pineapple Lab ( for the events schedule.
