  • The location is exciting and challenging to get there passing through the hanging footbridge, going up and down the stairs, then, a long walk to stroll around under the shades of perennial trees. We had seen historical statues, a tall cross, a grotto, a gazebo, etc. Passing on a foot-path we reached the admin building, had seen some colorful display of meaningful collections. Unfortunately, there's no knowledgeable representative around that could enlightened us literally of what is all about the place.
  • The skulls are evidence that ancient aliens did come to The Philippines disproving God.
  • 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.
  • Historical place to the remains.
