  • A very educational place for students & non-students alike. It has various collections of animal bones.
  • A very informative museum about animals surrounding us through preservation of their bone structures. This 3-story Museum is best for those animal-lovers out there. They have very friendly staff and tour guide and Mr. Darrel, the founder, is so accommodating. They have a wide array of animal bones from animals that live on land, sea and air. Operating Hours: Mon-Fri(10am-5pm) & Sat (1pm-5pm). Entrance Fee at P80 Adults & P70 kids.
  • A nice (and cozy) museum for learning about our rich natural history. Great place to bring kids to allow them the opportunity to discover our rich marine life.
  • If you are interested in knowing about the fauna in the Mindanao area, you can learn about them by their bones displayed very artfully and professionaly in D' Bone Collector...
  • Cool place for people to see bones and stuff. Great tour as well.

Where to stay in Davao City

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Davao City, nor a lack of choice between different styles. Close to the central People's Park, a number of hotels great and small offer arrays of facilities to match the number of stars they display outside. A number of fairly basic family-run guesthouses offer up the budget options in town, located primarily on the side streets to the north and south of this central area. Look inland and out of town for a collection of guesthouses located right in the thick of the rural landscape.
