Crisologo Museum, Vigan

3.8
#1 of 9 in Museums in Ilocos Region
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.

  • Also this stately home was turned into a museum with a glimpse into the life of the respective time. You can visit it during a walk through the old town.

  • Best to visit during night time if you are aiming for a perfect Instagram picture. The place is a little bit crowded given that it is the famous street in Vigan. Different restaurants are located here depending on your taste bud.
  • Amazing experience! Their caretaker is one of the best person you can talk to about history of this place as well as the person behind this museum. Although no entrance fee was needed, they will ask you for donation but not forcing you on it. But trust me, every donation you will give to this place is worth every penny since the caretaker will take care of every information you need on the museum.
  • Very great place .. when you go to vigan its a must go vissit..
  • This museum contains the old memorabilias of the Crisologos. The house and all its furniture are well preserved. The old-house turned museum has 2 floors. Free entrance fee but you can donate if you want to help preserve the museum. Staffs are nice. The flooring on the second floor is worn out already. Be careful with your steps.
  • Crisologo Museum location at Ilocos Norte. He was an Attorney with profession. Can see those old cars who he and his wife used during that regime.
