  • If you're searching on how to go to Galleon Museum the fastest possible time, read this guide and soon you'll get there at no time. Galleon Museum is located at Mall of Asia but since the entire shopping, dining and entertainment center is so huge, you must know the exact location of the museum in the complex.

    Galleon Museum is located just adjacent to IMAX of Mall of Asia. It is in the north western tip of the mammoth shopping center. Specifically, Galleon Museum is at the corner of Seaside Blvd and Sunset Ave, see map at the bottom of this post. So by public transportation, the jeepney you must take in getting there must be headed to the MOA north transport terminal, not the south transport terminal. But if you can't avoid boarding a jeepney or van which is headed to their MOA south public terminal, just get off at the unloading area in the roundabout where the digital globe landmark is situated. Follow the walk direction which is given here.

    For fast direction, quick guides on how to get to Galleon Museum from either MRT or LRT are given below. Next to them are detailed directions from particular locations in Metro Manila.

    Here are two fastest ways on how to get to Galleon Museum by train:

      The outdoor walkway ends at Seaside Blvd which is next to Ocean Dr. Turn right on Seaside Blvd, keep walking until you get to the distinctive and humongous dome-shape Galleon Museum.

    From MRT:

    1. Take a train from any station and get off the train at Taft Ave Station.
    2. Take MRT-3 from North Ave or any important spot along the route, i.e., Vertis North, Centris, Araneta Center, Ortigas Center, Ayala Center, etc. If you want a shorter route from MRT-7 (under construction), transfer to MRT-3 at the common station.

    3. Take a city bus with "Mall of Asia" signage or any jeepney bound for MOA
    4. .

      A whole bunch of public transport is available from MRT Taft Station, though this route is congested. Buses and jeepneys arrive at loading area by the minute. If loading area is too far for you, a terminal of jeepneys headed to Mall of Asia is located just across the stairs of MRT Station.

    5. Get off at Mall of Asia roundabout unloading zone across metallic globe
    6. .

      The bus or jeepney takes the roundabout and stops right in front of Mall of Asia main building. You must alight here. Except if the vehicle turns right and proceeds to North Terminal and not passes through the roundabout. In that case follow the direction from LRT.

      North Wing is on right hand side if you're facing Mall of Asia once you have gotten off the bus or jeepney in the roundabout. You will immediately see the pedestrian bridge, proceed there to take the pedestrian crossing underneath it so that you can take the walkway.

    9. Keep walking, cross Ocean Dr and turn right on Seaside Blvd to get to Galleon Museum

      The outdoor walkway ends at Seaside Blvd. But you will cross Ocean Dr first. Turn right on Seaside Blvd, walk further, and few meters away is the distinctive and humongous dome-shape Galleon Museum.
