Ayala Museum Summer Workshops



Ayala Museum’s enriching summer programs are for children of all ages, teenagers, and adults. The programs take a fun shortcut to learning and enhancing skills and the variety isn’t bad either. Have your children spend a Saturday afternoon at a treasure hunt or have them dabble early in photography, while you may take an oil painting or travel writing class in the other room.

The Peninsula Academy: Lutong Pinoy and Pasalubong-Making


Guided by an experienced pastry chef, junior guests of the Peninsula Manila can learn kitchen basics, particularly how to whip up traditional Filipino desserts. The kids will love making their own halo-halo and feasting on a sweet merienda afterward.

An afternoon at The Peninsula may also introduce the joys of arts and crafts to the little ones. For the budding artist, there’s a two-hour class on pasalubong-making where children can paint on papier-mâché molds and design their own shirts or canvas bags.
