Arzobispado de Manila building
The museum is located at the former Arzobispado building built beside the church. It is when San Miguel church used to be the seat of the archdiocese when Manila Cathedral was destroyed during the war up until when it was re-constructed in 1958.
The building had retained much of its architecture, baldoza tiles, grilled windows, fixture and furniture. The group was warmly accommodated by a group of volunteer parishioners.
