  • The museum is located at a place near the area where the balangay boats were discovered. A good slice of history and getting to know about the people of long ago.
  • The place is interesting although I was disappointed to see just about three exhibitions (coffins, one balangay and some historical accounts). The place was undergoing renovations when we visited. The drive was longer than the time we spent in the museum.
