Take this rare chance to view Ayala Museum’s prized collections of Philippine arts and historical artifacts during this National Heritage Month as the Makati gallery gives the public free access for one day only to celebrate International Museum Day.

The Ayala Museum has announced that its available galleries will be open to the public with limited slots for free admission on May 27, 2022.

The announcement posted on the museum’s Facebook page said that its free entrance will be available “on a first-come, first-served basis” for visitors.

Entry to the Makati-based museum will be free for the first 500 persons to register online starting May 26 at 4 p.m.

Successful registrants will be able to visit the museum’s galleries for free on May 27, from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

The Ayala Museum, which late last year reopened to the public after two years of renovation, houses permanent exhibits such as “Ayala Museum: In Microcosm” and its Digital Gallery which is made up of eight sprawling screens that enable visitors to digitally explore objects from the museum and library collections.

The museum is also hosting a free interactive virtual tour of its “Dioramas of Philippine History” exhibition, a collection of sixty dioramas designed to be a comprehensive approach to Philippine history and present a visual narrative of the story of the Filipino people.

The online tour of the exhibit can be accessed through the social platform, Gather.Town, from May 27 to June 27, 2022.

The Ayala Museum in Makati earlier celebrated National Arts Month in February by waiving its admission fee for teachers.

The Ayala Museum and Filipinas Heritage Library were jointly awarded in the Leading Culture Destinations Awards – dubbed the “Oscars for Museums” – for best practices as a destination that influences and empowers visitors in 2018.

The National Museum of the Philippines (NMP) in Manila recently extended its visiting hours as the world marked International Museum Day on May 18.
