  • Our class went here for a little field trip during our history of architecture class. It was a great way learning about it's past.
  • The don't really have a friendly staff but it was overall okay. I attached a photo for the fares and rules. They don't really offer tours inside i think. I got to see things from the past. Not muxh thibgs to do here ither than go to thw museum whixh isn't all that fantastic. It looked like every other old place. It's not somewhere you would go if you want to be completely immersed in the era.
  • A nice opportunity to take a glimpse of 19th-century life in Manila.🎥💖
  • Colonial home allowing you to step back in time and get as a sense of what some homes may have been like both architecturally and decoratively. Most all finishings and decor are wood. No pictures are allowed to be taken inside. The home overlooks a beautiful courtyard surrounded by a few restaurants and shops.
  • Very nice and historical.
