99 Envisioned by the artist Fernando Zobel in the 1950s, the Ayala Museum was established in 1967 under the auspices of Ayala Foundation, Inc. as a museum of Philippine history and iconography. Today, it is one of the leading art and history museums in the Philippines, committed to disseminating and promoting awareness and appreciation of Philippine art and culture through both permanent and special exhibitions. The museum offers three permanent exhibitions: The Diorama Experience , an exhibition of sixty handcrafted dioramas that bring to life the rich tapestry of Philippine history; Pioneers of Philippine Art , which showcases the museum’s fine arts collection representing the works of Filipino masters Juan Luna, Fernando Amorsolo, and Fernando Zobel; and Crossroads of Civilizations , a tripartite exhibition featuring Philippine archaeological gold, nineteenth-century costumes, and Chinese and Southeast Asian trade ceramics recovered in the Philippines. The Ayala Museum organizes special exhibitions in collaboration with other museums and institutions at home and abroad, and holds conferences for curators, conservators, and scholars focusing on different aspects of the museum’s collections, special exhibitions, and education programs.
