Established in 1996, the Filipinas Heritage Library (FHL) is the other half of Ayala Foundation’s Arts and Culture Division. As a one-stop digital research center on the Philippines, its mission is to spark and stoke interest in the visual, aural, and printed story of the Filipino.
We collaborate with individuals and institutions in preserving documentary heritage with a focus on the formative period of Philippine nationhood (1930-1950s). Our Filipiniana collections are shared with the public onsite (on the sixth floor of the Ayala Museum complex), virtually (through our online public access catalogue), and through public programs (exhibitions, lectures, and educational activities).
