This museum is in an odd location, actually located within a working warehouse, but I found it to be well worth the trip. Though the museum is not large and only takes less than an hour to see everything, it gave me the feeling of what life was like in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era. The building is a restored house built by the Jesuits in 1730. The furnishings, however, are from the late 19th-early 20th centuries but they were still fascinating.
Our guide was courteous and knowledgeable about the history of the building and the Philippines. If you have a free afternoon in Cebu City and are interested in Philippine history I would recommend that you stop by. The Yap family ancestral home is right around the corner so you could combine a visit to the two museums in one trip.
