  • Nothing to do with the museums that we usually see, but still interesting to try and understand the vicissitudes of the Philippines, for me the visit was positive

  • We asked around and this was basically the only place to go to see any of the history of cebu. Not a very large place but still there was some interesting things to look at. 
  • interesting historical Museum in cebu, say the only one who can offer a bit of history, but I can't figure out why the ticket for foreigners is double if not triple that unlike Filipinos.

  • For only Php 30.00, I get to enjoy lots of exhibit rooms. This is, for me, the best museum among all the nearby museums. I got goosebumps just by reading the Spanish encomiendas and Thomasite missionary Edward Sharp's notes. There's also the old PNB bank notes during WWII which can be likened to a death sentence for whoever owns them.
  • If you are a local student, don't forget to bring your ID! They have discount! I really do recommend this for you to visit if you are around the City
  • very educational and you can learn a lot of things at this place. a perfect place to know about Cebu's rich history
  • One of the best museums you have to go when you are in Cebu City.
  • Good museum
