  • Motag Living Museum is an educational, interactive and fun experience that adjusts your perspective on the privileges of the modern age. The people here are full of kindness, humility and happiness. It is a worthwhile experience. The cost was 700 php per person. We paid 100 php for a tricycle from the Caticlan Port. This place runs on donations and your money will be put to good use.
  • Traveled from boracay to go to the museum during their normal hours, Tuesday at 2pm. Museum was closed. Had called earlier in the day, person on phone did not mention they would be closed. Wasted time and money to travel over. Disappointed.
