The Ayala Museum and the Filipinas Heritage Library are finally reopening their doors to welcome guests this December 4. The museum at Greenbelt Park, Makati announced their return on social media teasing new exhibitions, gift shop items, and a new look to their facilities.
They have also posted some guidelines for everyone excited to revisit the museum and library. Visits must be pre-booked at their website, ayalamuseum.org/visit, and guests must present their fully-accomplished vaccination cards to enter. Learn more about their guidelines below:
The soft opening will offer everyone a glimpse of the establishment’s newly renovated museum and library with 5 galleries initially accessible to the public with prebooked admissions, timed entries, and limited capacity on admissions. According to their website, its new “outside-inside atmosphere” design by the Leandro V. Locsin Partners (LVLP)is a way to ensure that the museum is a safe zone with safety protocols in place. Entrance to the revamped museum costs P350.
Visitors can expect the exhibitions “Intertwined: Transpacific, Transcultural Philippines” with over 240 carefully curated objects and artworks and the “Landscape into Painting: Fernando Zobel Serie Blanca”, a new gallery dedicated to artist Fernando Zobel who envisioned the Ayala Museum.
Guests can also explore the Orientations Gallery with a display of tangible objects from the Ayala Museum collections; the Digital Gallery that’s made up of 8 sprawling screens that enable visitors to digitally discover the museum’s contents; and The Diorama Experience, a refreshed version of the popular exhibition mainstay.
The Ayala Museum and Filipinas Heritage Library have also adopted the omnichannel approach, with multiple digital channels available for everyone 24/7, exclusive content onsite that enriches the viewer’s understanding through the new Ayala Museum app, and the revamped Ayala Museum portal as your online destination for everything Ayala Museum.
