  • We were asked by our instructor to visit museums and a friend recommended the place. I was so doubtful at first since I never heard of it. It was a small house but it has a lot of interesting things. ...  more »

  • This small museum’s main attraction is the original Philippine flag, a bit tattered from what I surmise is heavy use since its debut in 1898. It is great to see efforts to preserve it from further wear and tear. It is a bit dark in the room where the flag is, so photos are grainy at best. The museum also has some interesting memorabilia showcasing the life and times of the country’s first President. An hour is enough to visit the entire museum. According to the docent during my visit, the museum is the brainchild of Aguinaldo’s daughter, Cristina. Most of the memorabilia on display were bequeathed to her by her father. The museum is not open during lunch hours and has some questionable policies. They charge an admission fee of 115 pesos, which is quite steep given the size of the museum and the exhibits on display. In addition, you must visit with at least four other people and book a mandatory guided tour. If you are visiting solo or are with a smaller group, you should be willing to pay for five people or they’ll turn you away.
  • It was such a nice experience when me and my cousin visited this museum and saw the first Philippine flag. Our tour guide was jolly and knows how to tell stories about historical events that happened in our country together with the first President, Emilio Aguinaldo. It was really an awesome experience and hopefully some schools here in Baguio would visit this museum to know more about our history. A little tip : Bring more friends ( minimum is 5) so it's not that expensive to pay for the entrance fee but it's worth it guys! :D with the sound effects and paintings on the wall. With the little scary hanging bridge and big statues of the heroes looking at you at the terrace while you're looking at the philippine flag.
  • A lot has changed here since the first time I toured the museum. This time it is not just relics in a shelf but rather a walk through history. Really educational experience
  • A very nice and informative museum on our first president

Where to stay in Baguio

Look for upscale accommodations near Burnham Park, where you can check into a room with views over the central green area. Some resorts farther out of the city center make use of the increase in space by offering pools, onsite restaurants, and other amenities. Bed and breakfasts provide the more budget-conscious traveler with a comfortable place to rest after a long day of adventuring. You'll find these establishments on the outskirts of town, or along the side streets in and around the city center.
