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.

  • The Museum Crisologo in Vigan you visit for free. That's why this morning, good Friday, was packed with people. The family was high in the province and Crisologo last descendant, died a few weeks ago novantacunquenne, was a prominent political figure of this province, the latest in a string of relatives all political figures. The mansion is on two floors and exhibits objects and photographs of the family and beyond. There are posters of the sixties with photographs of all women; I haven't counted but they were many. Upstairs there is a dining room on a nice porch with a long table that was used for family meals and business. Then the bedroom with the inevitable canopies that make much colonial style. For curtains cover the Windows typical of Center of Vigan with squares of nacre. Interesting also the building externally. The House is in the Center, a few steps from calle Crisologo,

  • Family Crisólogo, one of the main families of Vigan, has transformed his home into a point junction between personal memories and the local history museum. You have the impression of entering the privacy of families who have met and made the history of their country. It is this museum is unique and interesting even if you don't understand the language of the country and that, sometimes, you feel a little voyeur.

  • 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.
  • Crisologo Museum is not as big as other museum but the preservation of the items are good. And you will be amaze that refrigerator existed already way beyond without electricity.😊😊
  • Good place to go to and take the family. We had a wonderful time checking out how rooms and things were from before.
  • 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..
