We were viewing the photos of the Ruins Through Time from a corner of an open space at the back of the Ruins when people go downstairs in an unlikely building. There's no entrance fee and the stairs' a matter of which way to go first, the museum (right) or the crypt (left). Of course, we went the museum which... More

I like museum generally. This is a very small exhibit of the sacred art but I like it because the items were thoughtfully spaced out and clearly labelled. The crypt was also interesting compared to the ones I seen in Europe. It's very small but very neat. Both the crypt and the museum are located in the underground behind the... More

This crypt was a little less creepy than others. The bones are laying in floor to ceiling cases with glass windows for viewing. The artifacts in the museum are worth a quick look.

In the museum gallery area, also downstairs, you can see historical... More

The house is a a place where they still preserve the artwork and paintings from the Christian church. Quite dark and creepy with those draw the devils and evil. The tour guide cannot speak English very well so we’d better read the descriptions for each item.

This museum is located on the ground of where St. Paul's Cathedral used to stand. To access the museum one can access the staircase and get down the basement. Basically it is a small space with 1 wing displaying some artifacts related to Catholic Church and huge pictures of Jesus and other saints. The crypt is located in the middle... More
