  • One of the few things to see when in Tacloban. The entrance fee for the museum comes with a guided tour. The place itself was quite dark and gloomy since there weren't any lights in most of the building, they would turn them on and off when you entered a room. There was also still some storm damage from Yolanda. The ground floor consisted of bedrooms in a variety of different decorations which are different to each other. I found the upstairs to be more interesting with the larger rooms, living areas as well as conference areas. The size of the rooms was astounding. Most the furniture in there was beautiful and fairly well maintained. There were also a few wall paintings and sculptures which were nice to look at. An interesting place to see how the rich made use of money back in the day.
  • Very beautiful building and exquisite treasure inside but unfortunately badly damaged by Yolanda. This home was owned by the Marcos family and is a compliment to the museum in Ilocos. The tour guide lacks enthusiasm and did not provide much information. This and the lack of preservation of many of the items inside has left me asking more questions to which I have no answer.
  • I was expecting for something more interesting. It turned out that the tour I took was boring. I was charged close to 300P. I thought it was way too expensive for for 1 person. The it self was really boring. It wasn't organized at all. I had to wait for 20 mins to start, because another party was supposed to join, but no explanation at all. The lady talked way too fast with heavy accent. I only understood half of what I was told. The interior was gorgeous, but many parts are still broken after Yolanda. The place has good potential to be a good tourist's attraction place. But you know this is Tacloban, you can't expect much.
  • I really thought it was a Santo Niño shrine but it ended up more like a museum of Imelda Marcos and the excesses of the Marcos regime. The place is in need of repairs especially after the Yolanda devastation. It’s falling apart.
  • A must-visit while in Tacloban. One of the most amazing museums I've visited. The place, though damaged and under maintained, is very beautiful and grandiose. It feels you're in another time and place. The time allowed for the tour is rather quick (less than 20 minutes per tour) for a place that huge and instagrammable.
