Crisologo Museum, Vigan

(3.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Unfortunately at our time of visiting, only the downstairs was open, not much to interest overseas visitors 
  • A two-storey family mansion Krizologo was transformed into a private museum in memory of the amazing man kongressmene Floro Crisologo S, devoted his life to creating the social security system in the Philippines. He actively advocated the abolition of the death penalty and was shot in St. Paul. His wife was Governor and also played a prominent role in public life. The Museum is located on the first floor parlor and library, which contains numerous articles on family Krizologo. In the kitchen and the living room you can see antique furniture and household items. There is an interesting collection of hats from different regions of the Philippines. Part of the exhibition takes us back to the history of the Philippines and introduces the biographies of prominent personalities of the past, such as Lapu-Lapu, chieftain of Mactan Island killed Magellan, Padre Jose Burgos, beheaded on charges of subversive activities against the Spaniards, Gen. Antonio Luna, a brilliant strategist of the Philippine-American war and many, many others.

  • You can feel the history of the Philippines, not only in the history of the Ilocos region. Furniture and other products were stored in clean. It is also the course at the calesa.
