We visited this place because we wanted to make sure we will be making the most out of our vacation. Not a typical tourist spot everybody would love to visit but still worth visiting to know part of our history. It is a good place to learn more about the Marcos' and to see the overlooking beautiful man-made lake. Although... More

It's not something you'd visit every time you're in Ilocos, but if you have time to spare, why not? It's not very hard to get to the place; there are lots of signs that will point you there. It's a good place to learn more about the Marcos family and take photos at the beautiful lake behind the house. Great... More

Such a wonderful experience to visit Malacañang! I enjoyed the place with a tour guide telling marvelous projects and facts about Marcos' and his projects, Malacanang of the North, and the sceneries.

Captivating elements of this place show every inch of history and grace. Every rooms, displays artifacts and structures speak an eloquence of power and heroism...power for the Marcose's and heroism for people who sweat their tears and blood for building that beautiful ancestral house! The overlooking man made lake was breath taking and very relaxing. My siblings including myself, nieces... More

A well-maintained structure, more like a museum. Enjoy the scenic view of the Paoay Lake when you go out the other side of the place or from the Balcony from the 2nd floor. Open from 9AM -11:30AM and 1PM - 4:30PM daily except on Mondays. Entrance Fees: PHP 20 - adult PHP 10 - child

And who is that one person you might ask? The Tour Guide. I've been to this establishment more than half a dozen times within the last 3 years and during some of my visits with clients, we were treated to a walking tour of the building by the inhouse tour guide. Because of all the stories, information and random jokes,... More

If your an ordinary tourist, it may not interest you at all. It may only look like a huge ancestral house, with few old wooden furniture, that converted into a function venue for weddings and party. However, if you brought along some pieces of knowlege in Philippine history, you would appreciate the significance of the structure with the lives of... More

I love the house!!! I can imagine how people lived there. It's grandiose and I love the view from the veranda, too. When it comes to memorabilia, don't expect to much. There's more at Marcos Museum and Mausoleum.
