  • A beautiful example of a wealthy family house from the 1850s. Well restored and displayed. The guide was friendly, informative & professional. Well worth every peso of the admittance fee.  more »

  • If you visit Cebu and do the city tour, you have to visit this museum. It's really beautiful and well preserved. Cafeteria which is placed in here also nice~!
  • This tour was very informative on the early development of Cebu. It gives great context on what you now see as modern Cebu. I would say that the families that lived there are probably Upper middle class Cebuanos. The place is well preserved and if you have the time, you can wear the clothes of the era and have some amazing photographs around the house. Definitely worth visiting.
  • Lovely. professional. well laid out. Latest technologies, photos, cinema, great gift shop, sweet café, great tour guide, and an opportunity to dress up in outfits & dresses of the day for a photo shoot - that was the best part! Will visit again!
  • 5 star for a very good service. Staff are very friendly and approchable. Place was converted into a modern yet still historic presentation of the events that marks or gave reputation to Cebu.
  • Wonderful! Probably the best museum in Cebu! They’ve invested some real money and made exactly the right improvements. Spot on! If you like history or you like simple, very fine things; this is the place!
