A mansion overlooking the sea, Malacanang Of The North once served as home of former president Ferdinand E. Marcos. Today, it functions as a museum detailing the turbulent political situation when Marcos ruled under martial law--which ended with a revolution in 1986. Tour guides on hand can answer all of your questions, or you can read the brochures and signs in several languages. If you're there just for the architecture and art, walk around by yourself and admire numerous paintings on the walls.

  • This place really preserve the ideas and the accomplishments of our former President Ferdinand Marcos. You can feel how President Marcos loved his country and the people. You can feel you're Filipino blood rushing through your veins and if you're not a Filipino, well, you can still feel and appreciate what President Marcos has done. You will appreciate more the history, culture, tradition and heritage of the Philippines and you will realize how wonderful it is.
  • It has the nicest view of the lake from the house. The whole mansion is well maintained, but there was no electricity when we went there. Couldn't use the restroom properly.
  • Informative place for tourists. If you like to learn information about the late President Ferdinand Marcos, I recommend you begin your tour here.
  • Old mansion but maintained very well. Nice view of the lake at the back.
  • This place was worth a visit years ago. This time, the house is just a memory since the items originally that were placed there are substituted with photos. There's a lakeview from the second floor for phot ops. There's also additional entrance fee of P10 for children and P30 for adults. You can skip this place.
