Ayala Museum is known for its dioramas (3D miniatures) depicting vital points in Philippine history. The most magnificent exhibition is Gold of Ancestors – a glittering assemblage of golden pre-colonial artefacts and treasures, particularly intricately engraved jewellery fashioned by indigenous island tribes. Elsewhere, Embroidered Multiples displays 18th to 19th-century Philippine costumes.
