“Shows the Decadence of the Marcos times”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

I thought I was visiting a church shrine, but it was an interesting glimpse on how wasteful the Marcos era truely was for the Philippines. The place must have been magnificant in the early 80's, but now it is a faded echo of what was.

This is the home area of the former first lady and it shows, the people still view her with respect.

Well worth a visit for the history.

“Sad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

This has clearly been Grand a long time ago. But now it looked neglected and badly needs attention. We cannot discount the historical value though. We should learn from past mistakes.

“Well organized.. worth a visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Nice heritage museum but this need careful attention now unlike when this was first cared by the originator. The organization of items displayed were in its specific places well segregated theme.

Amazing items and one could think how much would these all worth today. Altogether this museum still have helped generate revenue for the city.

Come and see it for your self.. it is worth a visit.

“Delusions of grandeur.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

It is a crumbling edifice in sore need of repairs and a perfect example of someone's delusions of grandeur.
