A well preserved example of how a wealthy family lived, Casa Manila stands as a fine example of colonial Philippines. With well labeled displays, visitors can walk through the house and understand who and how a family lived here. Furniture played the main role in explaining how the family lived. I would have liked to see guides, but there were... More

When you enter the courtyard, it kinda takes you back to the old Spanish era, where the women and men wore the traditional clothes, and then imagine them sitting by the fountain having conversation. Then the museum upstairs, gives you a glimpse of what life was like back then.

An old Manila home - so beautiful. Do this in the morning. Take your time walking around. Check out the souvenir shop.

I visited Casa Manila and was impressed with the quality of the furnishings and overall historical value of all the items in the museum. It was a very quick visit and I was transported back in colonial times. I only wished the tour was longer. It took me about 20-30 minutes to visit the museum. I enjoyed the surrounding area... More

Other than the heat, this was one of the best tours we had on the trip. The home has been restored and is beautifully done with gorgeous antiques. Our guide did an excellent job of explaining customs of the time, noting the historical value of furniture, etc. This is well worth the time.

You can enter this with no fee.. You have to pay 75 pesos though, to get inside the house. Whilst inside the house, you are not allowed... More

This is a great place to bring family, friends and foreign visitors. Why? How does ten US dollars equivalent to the local currency per person sound to you? That comes with Shrimp, crabs, steak, roast beef, sisig, Lechon de Cebu and two table full of assorted desserts , both local and western delicacies. The atmosphere at night is good compared... More
