  • visited this museum in 2000 and it was an uneventful visit but i was lucky enough to visit it again on the first day of its re-opening after being closed for 2 yrs and i can say that i appreciate it b...  more »
  • 这是一幢西班牙风格的建筑,建筑保养的不错。里面都是各种各样的古董,可以说是一个大杂烩。你可以在这儿看到当时的西班牙人各种生活场景。 
  • ... where the average review. From the outside, nice Filipino House, rare witness of Philippine heritage in a big city like Cebu the same title that Casa Manila in Manila. Beware, the House is not easy to find. You can ask the locals but be precise otherwise they will tell you far from the Casa Gorordo Street in question! Your mark can be the winner-Cebu Museum that is not far. So, patience...!

  • For only P70.00 (quite expensive) you can a.) Get the feel living inside a hundred year old house. b.) Count each steps of the stairs as you chant, "oro, plata, mata." c.) See old personal effects we don't use anymore. Just stroll, examine the exibits, relax in their veranda, just take note that picture taking is not allowed. Ouch!
  • Awesome preservation of Philippines history fragment.. :)
  • It was closed when I walked toward this museum from Yap Museum. It looked old and well-preserved from the outside.
