Inside the Iglesia ni Cristo Museum

Iglesia ni Cristo Museum


It is a proud and humbling experience to visit the Iglesia ni Cristo Museum located in Quezon City. 
It is not very usual for a religious organization to have a museum where one can learn about the history and cultural heritage of the church. 

Keep reading to know more about the Iglesia ni Cristo Museum, Entrance Fee, Address and Schedule:


Iglesia ni Cristo Museum


The Iglesia ni Cristo Museum is a 5-story building located along Central Avenue near the INC central temple. It is a non-profit cultural and educational institution owned and operated by the Felix Y. Manalo Foundation, the socio-cultural and environmental arm of the Iglesia ni Cristo. 

Upon entry to the museum, I already knew it is comparable to other museums I had the opportunity to visit in other countries.

The five-floor building, which has a total area of 46,098.54 sqm, features a children’s museum and timeline, historical and thematic exhibits. The building is spacious, well-maintained and well-ventilated. I read that the Iglesia ni Cristo studied other museums around the world to ensure that it features the latest innovations and trends, ensuring that the experience would be engaging and immersive. The planning and construction took 8 years to complete. There are still some areas that are open and spacious - I think these areas are designed for future memorabilia. 

Upon entry, guests would be first directed to the Orientation Hall. 

If you love photos for your Instagram, there are some areas which are open for photos and videos. But most part of the Iglesia ni Cristo Museum does not allow photo and video recording. 

Sharing some of the photos we took.

This area reminds me of Acropolis Museum in Greece

I love the spacious lobby, hallway and the walkalators that enable guests to easily explore the museum. 

Inside the museum you can find the actual suits, passport, bible and memorabilia that Ka Felix Y. Manalo used during the early years of the church. 

Some of the few things that really interest me are the actual letters of heads of states, and recognitions from influential people from around the world sent to Ka Felix Y. Manalo. I also love the letters sent by brethren from different countries and the official registration certificates of the church.

You can also see the photos of Ka Erano G Manalo during his mission to share the teachings around the world. I remember his visit to Greece! I didn't realize I would get the chance to visit that country. 

The Iglesia ni Cristo Museum also features socio and civic activities that showcase the church 's work at helping impoverished communities around the world. 

I don't want to spoil the experience for you. Explore for yourself and enjoy!

If you have kids, you can check out the playground at the first level. Inside it is the Noah's Arc with Interactive Globe.

It is a very humbling experience for me to visit the Iglesia ni Cristo Museum and to look back at the history of the Iglesia ni Cristo which started in our country and is now one of the most influential organizations in the world. 

The Iglesia ni Cristo Museum is open to members and non-members of the church. I am personally inviting you to visit the world-class museum, and get to know the church. 

Iglesia ni Cristo Museum Entrance Fee: 

Php 350 for the full tour, which includes access to all exhibits
Php 150 for limited access to the children's museum

You can buy ticket in the museum as walk-in, but it would be good to call for reservation. 

The INC Museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Address: Iglesia Ni Cristo Museum
No. 1 Central Avenue, New Era; Quezon City, Philippines
