One a warm day, you can use it to be cooled down, otherwise you can visit this museum to see the Philippine history, and some of their treasures. A very nice museum.

The gold exhibition was my favorite, but the Alfonso Ossorio exhibition was pretty sweet too. Also the diorama section was a great way to learn about the colonial history. Definitely a good way to kill a few hours.
