  • The staff of the museum is so welcoming and you will find there many historic arts, maps, materials, tools, etc. that range from the Hispanic and Japanese occupation of the Philippines as well as those from the indigenous people or tribes men. The place is very accessible and is located in the downtown area.
  • One of the places you have to visit when in Davao. Gives you an appreciation for the city and its history. Having a tour guide was a huge plus.. And admission is Free!
  • A repository of Davao's heritage and history. It's nice to know that the museum guides are knowledgeable enough about the cultural history of their people. Definitely an historic place to visit. And did I mention that it's free admission?
  • have to come back to this place... lots of learning
  • It is a small but 2-storey museum. It speaks of the story and culture of Davao. A painting greets the visitors in going up to the second floor. Tour guide is provided.
