Crisologo Museum, Vigan

(110+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Crisologo Museum allows visitors to inspect a wealth of historical artifacts in the preserved house of this prominent Filipino political dynasty. The home of Floro Crisologo and his family was preserved after he was assassinated while taking part in communion at Vigan Cathedral in 1970, with the lone gunman making his escape in the chaos and panic that followed. Exploring the two-story home, you can observe a wealth of antique furnishings and artifacts, including the desk Floro worked at while he was a congressman, and the central exhibition pertaining to the assassination itself, which incorporates some grisly photographs and even his bloodstained trousers. Add Crisologo Museum and other attractions to your Vigan trip itinerary using our Vigan vacation planner.
