A Modern Museum Style: The Ayala Museum

It was November 2006 when I first entered the Ayala Museum. Actually, I was a bit astonished because it was not the typical museum that I have seen in the Philippines before. It was very sophisticated and posh looking, more of a modernized business that a museum. I felt intimated! The Ayala Museum is not so far away from my previous office, the mainstream of the Philippine Business District, Ayala Avenue. It is specifically standing at Makati Avenue corner De La Rosa Street, occupying a building designed by Leandro V. Locsin. This museum was visualized by the late artist, Fernando Zobel de Ayala y Montojo and is the gift of Ayala to the Filipino people. When one is passing or walking along dela Rosa walkway coming to or from The Landmark Mall, this museum is along the way. It contains sixty handcrafted dioramas form the core of the museum's historical collections and chronicles the rich tapestry of Philippine history. The scale models of maritime vessels that plied the Philippine shores enhanced these dioramas. The historical collection is complemented by archaeological, ethnographic, and fine arts collections spanning prehistory to the present. The fine arts collection features important works by Juan Luna (1857-1899), Fernando Amorsolo (1882-1972), and Fernando Zobel (1924-1984). To know all about the Ayala Museum, simply visit http://www.ayalamuseum.org/.

I’m glad I read this. I rarely reply to peoples comments…not because I don’t like them…but because I thought it was self-serving.
Thank you
