How to get to Museo de Intramuros

To reach the walled city of Intramuros from Manila, you can either take public transportation or walk from Manila City Hall. If taking public transportation, alight at the Central Terminal Station and walk five minutes to Manila City Hall. From there, walk to the pedestrian underpass across Padre de Burgos Street.

My experience with the museum

Since I was the only one to go to the Museum, the feeling was a bit creepy due to its old age. However, I was quite amazed at the paintings and religious sculptures because they have been preserved for a long time.

To wrap things up

Although it’s a bit touristy, the Museo de Intramuros in Manila is worth visiting. It offers you an insight into Philippine history and culture through its collection of artifacts and artworks.
