Along the market area and souvenir shops is an ordinary, old-looking house, the Ganduyan Museum of Sagada. The entrance is a dimly-lit threshold leading to an old time polished, wooden stairway, where slippers and shoes are placed aside before making one's ascent. Sitting on the wooden floor, our group was entertained by the son's curator in English. There is no... More

We arrived here just before 5pm. It was already closed. We were 12 in the group. Maybe they can still accommodate our visit, and yes, the caretaker agreed. She was a middle age woman. A cancer survivor as she explained. She was very familiar of everything that was displayed. It shows the history and culture of the mountain tribes. Even... More

A small private museum, very interesting & educational. It is owned & operated by I would say quite learned but a bit eccentric lady who knows the history of the town. There are a number of artifacts that she describes very well. She speaks very fluent English. Don't miss this experience! I don't remember paying a fixed fee just a... More

This is the popular museum of Sagada, for its old name is Ganduyan.. Also, the ground floor of the building are shops of souvenir items, decors, and t-shirts.. The owner is a local of the place who is accommodating though strict, and you will surely get impressed with her accent as if shes married to a foreign man.. She told... More

It's a small private museum near the bus & jeep terminal at the top of main street. Interesting and educational. Must remove shoes or slippers before going up to the second floor where the museum is located

The museum is one of the three must-see museums in the Cordillera loop in the northern Philippines; the others being the museums in Bontoc and in Banaue. Get to know about the culture of the people of Sagada in this lovely museum filled with interesting and valuable artifcats from heirloom beads to spirit baskets to planting tools and antique textiles....

We were greeted by a girl when we got there. She told us to take off our shoes before going upstairs. The place was like a second floor of a regular house. There, was a grandma who would lead the tour around the area. She speaks fluent English and would tell the history of the artifacts there in that language.... More
