In the same complex as Baclayon Church of the Immaculate Conception, though it is separate in the sense that the museum charges an entrance fee and the church does not.

Help restore our heritage

This old church and museum was destroyed during a strong quake. Now they are trying to restore it, so that the next generation will be able to see this wonderful heritage.

The church and museum are attached and the church is currently undergoing some renovation. You can walk into part of the church, but a large portion is off limits. You can take photos while in the church, but no photos are allowed to be taken inside of the museum. The church is cool to see if you like old architecture.... More

Baclayon church otherwise known as San Agustin church was built in 1596 and is one of the oldest in the Philippines. Unfortunately is was devastated during the earthquake of 2013. The museum houses interesting pieces from candelabras, priest garments, religious icons, ancient documents, etc.

I spent only about 10 minutes in the museum. It has some old relics that were interesting, but also old and dusty. The church is lovely, but undergoing renovations after the earthquake, which took away from the experience. Definitely worth a bit of time, but don't plan to be there for more than 20 minutes altogether. Photos in the museum... More

It's very sad that the church has not been recovered yet from the wreckage of the past earthquake . Although , it's always be a memory that stay still !!! It will take time to recuperate to its original structure :(

Paid 50 pesos just to see what's inside. Nothing extraordinary, just some relics kept intact, but was unkempt. There was dust everywhere. Photos are not allowed. I hope they run the place well. But if you are a relic fanatic, then its for you.

After visiting the adjacent Baclayon Church, we visited their Ecclesiastical Museum. As the name indicates, the museum focuses on ECCLESISTICAL objects-- those pertaining to the Roman Catholic Church. The museum allows you to travel back to the era before Vatican II reforms made Roman Catholic churches "modernized." There are Tridentine vestments and pre-Vatican II altar cards, church historical records, and... More
