  • A good place to learn about Cebu's history. They need to add more galleries though, and work on the existing ones.
  • There's not a lot to see. There's not enough artifacts to whet ones curiosity about Cebu's history.
  • Beautiful place art qnd literature of the history where you can see
  • Beautiful place. Some exhibits could use a lot of work though.
  • Museo Sugbo is worth visiting. It will educate about Cebu and the Philippines history. The young student that guided us could use some more knowledge about her country's history. A more pro-Philippine display and information would instil more pride in the Pinoy. The information now is a bit too pro-America, while its role in Philippine history has not always been beneficial for the local people. But overall it was very good and educational. No lunchroom and comfort rooms could use some improvements,

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.
