  • 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,
  • Nice place to visit. Pero pwede pa i-orient og maayo ang mga tour guide. Sa historical items nga gi-display sa place.
  • Our tour guide Odessa was very friendly and showed us around the museum. Good place to visit for history lovers. There are cute tiny cats running around the compound lol.
  • Known as the "Old Provincial Jail", it has definitely turned itself around to be a very informative site to immerse yourself in historical facts.
