In the same complex as Baclayon Church of the Immaculate Conception, though it is separate in the sense that the museum charges an entrance fee and the church does not.

After visiting the adjacent Baclayon Church, we visited their Ecclesiastical Museum. As the name indicates, the museum focuses on ECCLESISTICAL objects-- those pertaining to the Roman Catholic Church. The museum allows you to travel back to the era before Vatican II reforms made Roman Catholic churches "modernized." There are Tridentine vestments and pre-Vatican II altar cards, church historical records, and... More

Do not visit. Horrible, rotting, neglected artefacts and historical items that are full of dirt, dust and grime and whatever else you can think of. It breaks my heart to see these items could've been preserved in a much better state had the community given it the respect it deserves and use the contributions and donations they receive from generous...

I like the museum with life-sized saints & some old church relics on display. Amazed by the way it has been preserved tfor centuries.

The church is not in a good state now and under construction due to the earthquake. The museum is just beside the church. It is very spiritually compensating when you visit the museum. You will see old documents of the church and the old abito of the priest before.

There is nothing exhilarating or amazing in these collection, unless you are a history buff with a niched interest in ecclesiastical history. But buried inside these relics and jars and retablos and documents are the stories of a people. Let your imagination run wild. Ask questions? Create scenarios when old priests wore those ancient garments and how heavy they were,... More

The church is in a sorry state at present, pending reconstruction, and it seems that they have moved everything out into this museum. It has somewhat the feel of a junk shop, but there are some interesting things here; I was particularly fascinated by the old handwritten church records and wished I could look through them more closely.

No cameras or mobile phones are allowed inside to take pictures. The museum itself is antique. That would have been beautiful but in my opinion, things are not beautifully arranged nor preserved. The lighting should have been improved because it was dark and difficult to see around. I was not able to appreciate it very well. For 50 Php entrance... More
