Entry to the Ayala Museum is Free on May 27
In celebration of International Museum Day last week, the Ayala Museum is opening its doors for free to the first 500 visitors who sign up
Ayala Museum is celebrating International Museum Day (IMD) in person again, after turning to virtual events following the pandemic. This week, you can book a free visit to the Ayala Museum for Friday, May 27.
In consideration of everyone’s safety, slots will be limited (only 500 slots) and released on a first-come, first-served basis through Ayala Museum’s website a day before, May 26, at 4 p.m.
This year’s theme for International Museum Day is “The Power of Museums,” which highlights the power of museums to transform the world around us and bring about positive change to communities.
Two new exhibition experiences will also be launched. One is Filipinas Heritage Library’s “Liberation: War & Hope,” which centers stories on the life of everyday Filipinos before, during, and post-war, and the other is a narrative extension of the museum's must-see Dioramas of Philippine History called “Diorama Dialogue,” curated by Manuel L. Quezon III, that presents a fresh approach to understanding history by connecting selected dioramas with related events.
If you’re unable to visit the museum in person, don’t worry—the museum will be hosting a free interactive virtual tour of its iconic “Dioramas of Philippine History” exhibition through social platform, Gather.Town. On the platform, guests will be able to interact with each other, control an avatar, and explore a 2D render of Ayala Museum and all 60 of its historical dioramas.
The virtual space will be open to visit virtually anytime from May 27 up to June 27, 2022, with the link becoming available on Ayala Museum’s website and social media pages.
