Culture Café

Have you ever wondered what the Philippines was like before we became a Spanish colony? Well, now is your chance to find out!

Culture Café walks you through more than a millennium of Philippine prehistory as well as a full exploration of the Philippines’ rich history, culture, and art in one of the best museums in the country. And, just to cap it all of, you get to end the tour with a giant bowl of the Philippine’s national dessert: the curiously delicious halo-halo.
