  • This three storey museum in a narrow street almost opposite a smeily drain is the last pace one might expect to find a premises devoted to trying to educate us about not placing litter so that it flow...  more »
  • 富有知性, 創辦人是個很注重環保和動物生態的美國人. 他還獲得了Davao城市的獎章, 這個博物館雖然小小的但是很多獨具特色的骨頭標本, 也宣導了很多環境保護的觀念, 值得帶小朋友一起來造訪, 只是地點不太好找 
  • Very educational plus all the bones had their own story. We managed to meet the owner. The staff are well mannered and with full knowledge of each bone story.

  • A good destination for educational tours. The guides in the museum are good students and well trained. They will also try to educate guests about the value of conserving wildlife.
  • Beautiful and thought-provoking displays. Educational. Helps build awareness of the environment and our impact on other creatures. Definitely a must-visit for locals and visitors alike.
  • Good to educate people who throw gabage into ocean causing these innocent creatures bring to death !!
  • If you appreciate fossil art, then this is the place to ve. It's a good place to see bones speak of its ancient past.
  • A place built on passion and self drive... Superb collection of animal bones and especially marine mammals... Never throw plastics into the ocean... It kills whales!!
