The Metropolitan Museum of art in Manila is a wonderful place to stroll and enjoy the beautiful paintings, pottery, gold, and the different galleries.  There are plenty of galleries to walk through.  You cannot touch anything.  You also cannot take photos of the paintings because the flashes can damage the pictures. 

The museum is open Mondays thru Saturdays, closed on Sundays and holidays.  The gold and the pottery galleries are closed on the first Monday of each month.  This is a great trip for the family or to bring a class to teach about art.  The Museum is located at Bangko Sentral in the Pilipinas Complex.
