Midnight Museum II

mmfeature2.jpg

Ghosts, ghouls, and the monsters in your closet also need art and culture every now and then. That’s why the Ayala Museum will once again open its doors to all the creatures of the night until the clock strikes twelve! Due to popular demand, Midnight Museum is back and more twisted than ever!

Now on its second year running, the Ayala Museum’s Midnight Museum will let guests experience what happens inside its doors after the cover of darkness. Happening on October 30, 2015 all galleries will be open for viewing from 8 PM until 12 MN*!

In the fantastical spirit of Halloween, guests are also strongly encouraged to come in costume for a chance to be recognized for Costume of the Night by Young Star!

Finally! Exhibits ’til late

It will be a night of inspiring Philippine art, history, and culture with a touch of whimsy and a pinch of horror. Midnight Museum tickets, sold at Php 500 each (or Php 450 for employees of Ayala Group of Companies and Ayala Museum members), include admission to all galleries from 8 PM to 12 MN*.

This is a chance for people who are always completely busy during the day to finally see the well-loved Diorama Experience of Philippine History (maybe you’ll get to chat with the spirit of Heneral Luna) and the awe-inspiring Gold of Ancestors exhibitions (golden funerary masks! Gasp!).

Art from three generations will also be on display: The 48th Shell National Student Art Competition featuring the best works in a variety of media from student artists across the country; Journey Through Space: The Visual Odyssey of Fernando Zobel; and From Citadel to City: Juan Luna Paintings and 19th Century Prints from the BPI Collection.

Tricks, treats and more up our sleeves!

We’re giving the after-hours museum experience another twist with a screening of the Japanese animated movie Brave Story by Koichi Chigara care of the Japan Foundation Manila. For those craving for a swashbuckling adventure with monsters, dragons, and demons, then this is will definitely hit the spot!

Guests can also join the Midnight Museum Mysteries** where they can play detective and follow a series of clues to solve different whodunits to be played inside the exhibition galleries. Players will have a choice of three different mysteries: from discovering the traitor in the ranks of the Katipunan, to revealing the cryptic message of Juan Luna, to finding out the truth about the curse of the Gold of Ancestors.

Museum Café will also give treats for Midnight Museum ticket holders as they can avail of a buy-one-take-one promo for special Halloween drinks. The fun continues outside as the after party, dubbed Carte Blanche, will include performances from four of Museum Café’s acclaimed DJs.

To remember the night and immortalize that amazing costume, Fuji Film Instax will be there to take snaps that guests can take home!
