Galleries housing older collections have also gotten a makeover. The Fundacion Santiago Hall now has sculptures by Isabelo Tampinco and Guillermo Tolentino within vividly tangerine walls. The highlight of the National Art Gallery, Juan Luna's larger-than-life "Spoliarium," still hangs in the "Masters" gallery beside the lobby, facing another masterpiece, Felix Hidalgo's "La Tragedia de Gobernador Bustamante."

Paintings, artifacts, sculptures and other displayed treasures are well lit and it is a pleasure to walk amongst them. The security personnel present in each gallery warmly receive guests and are happy to give you what information they have on the contents of the gallery.
