  • This museum was a bit disappointing. I was looking forward to have a historical glimpse of the Cathedral but I guess it was all gone after the cathedral itself was destroyed. The museum mainly focused...  more »
  • The religious antiques were beautiful especially the statues made of ivory and glass eyes. Ask permission from the caretaker before you leave the museum for a photo in the old staircase.  more »

  • The outside its nicely done. But being shadowed by "real churches," this nice place is a popular parking lot of people who don't really go here. It is huge. The inside is informative but .. (sorry) boring. For a museum, this has to upgrade and use engaging means to inform.
  • They have beautiful antique church items. Picture taking is not allowed, though, for security reasons.
  • The history of roman catholic church in cebu items from 16th century to 20th century museum
  • You will learn so much history and interesting tidbits from the museum guide here (Gab). Not sure if he is still around though... last time I visited was 2012.
  • I was amazed of the collection of the "reboltos" with glass eyes. The changes in the convent, and Cardinal Vidal's life as a priest. Take a look also in the garden, it is a nice place to hold your wedding reception and other events.

Where to stay in Cebu City

The most popular place to stay in Cebu City remains uptown, particularly around the university district near Junquera Street station. Here you'll find a good range of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses of varying quality, but with a well-established base level representing value for money. Further north, look along Dalan Osmena to find a good number of standard and luxury hotels located north and south of the roundabout. The downtown area has more closely knitted streets, with just a few guesthouses located along primarily residential roads.
