A good place about Davao's history. But don't miss the Museo Dabawenyo. This is a different place and often mixed with that. Take your time, read, understand. Davao has a big history and I really think a bright future.

This is the most interesting place we visited in Davao, the Museum is set up really nice and there is a lot of information posted, the tour was too short. If I return I will definitely visit again.

A museum well worth your time to visit if you want to be informed of the history of the Davao Region. Do not mistake this museum for the Museo Dabawenyo which is an entirely different place. The museum is not at the city center, and...More
