  • I'm not a historian unlike my brother who was too inquisitive about the facts and fantasies or to a legend or myth. We were satisfied of the briefing done by the personnel-in-charge in the museum. I was interested more to photo-shoot the displayed artifacts and the environment within the premises. It was a worthwhile visit on not a peak day that made us able to take time and space looking at the exhibits and leading us to go to another location of the museum per suggestion disregarding the skin-biting sun at that time. It was a great learning experience to the four of us.
  • very informative place..nice ambiance
  • I love it here. Very historical. When i come here, I always ride an UBER. Use promo code LES4MORE & get a FREE RIDE up to 200pesos. 1 redemption per device per number allowed.
  • In this museum there were so many artifacts displayed like pots, jars, lusong, old coffin, balangay (boat) nigo and many more.
  • Great place not only to learn about history but also to have some peace and quiet.
