Before visiting /travelling in bohol, I highly recommend visiting this museum as it explains how chocolate hills formed with illustrations, how many different seashells and butterflies it has with examples, the origins of the island people with some skeletons and the small tersier animal's example... Then here you start your journey... Chocolate hills, tersier forest, perfect landscape with ocean view...

IT was Php10 to tour the museum. It's a very small museum but had a lot of interesting facts about Bohol. I'm glad we stumbled upon it when we explored the city.

The museum has sustained a large amount of structural damage and is closed due to the amount of structural damage and for the well being of the public's safety.

The bohol museum located in an old building infront of the Tagbilaran cathedral is worth visiting specially to learn about the people of Bohol. They have displays of "the Prehistoric Boholano," complete with the burial jar and ofcourse the ubiquitous tarsier. Entrance to the museum is ridiculously cheap and the place clean and nice. Try to visit the place whenever... More

Without Bohol museum, I would not be able to appreciate the "Chocolate Hills", the "tarsier" and all other unique experiences in Bohol. The written text and diorama were very helpful.
