  • The museum was very enlightening about Davao and the surrounding cultural history, and was guided by a young lady who moved quickly through the tour. There's alot to read and I felt like I could have stayed at least another hour to educate myself more. I was impressed though. I might try to visit again and just read all the things posted throughout the building.
  • Very educational. You will learn a lot from the history displayed in the museum, and will learn more thru their guide. 😍
  • You will learn how davao started its humble beginning, hot it rises, how it fall, and the potentials this city has... No picture taking inside kaya expect na sa labas ang sa lobby lang kayo may pictures.
  • This place is for FREE. Please do visit the museum when you're in davao, only then you'll appreciate how colorful and vibrant the culture of mindanao is. There will be tour guides for each group explaining the highlights and facts of History.
  • Really informative museum. Our guide was also very good
