Museo Iloilo is like any other museums I've been to where you can see artifacts, statues, swords and spears from the Panay tribe. What makes this unique is the statue of Santo Entiero, body of Christ as one of its attractions. Well, the museum is quite small with an entrance fee of 50pesos, but the staff are nice and would even... More

The museum is not that big but there's a throve of information to be gleaned once you notice it fully. There's an entrance fee to be paid (for the upkeep of the museum). Overall, a place to look into if you're a history buff.

The worst museum I've ever been ! The fee is P50 per person and you see it all within in 5-10 minutes. There are barely no information about the few items display. Nothing to learn, it doesn't worth the visit.

It's closed on weekends so I didn't get the full experience. Nonetheless, the exterior of the building is worth a selfie. Haha!

Museo Iloilo is one of the tourist attractions of the highly urbanized city. It exhibits historical artifacts and present day artworks by Ilonggos. When I was in 1st year high school, I remembered when my classmates debated about this Mickey Mouse money used during the World War II, now I finally saw how it looks like. Several corners of the...

This museum is located near the provincial government building. There is entrance fee. This houses several paintings of local artists, old relics, potteries and other objects which shows how the Ilonggos used to live.

The museum is so small, it is. It well maintained and the arrangement of monuments is not exactly according to specific timeline Also the narratives and identification of exhibits are not all written. They do have narration for the general periods of discovering iloilo and it's historic progression as a trade city from 1250 till end of Spanish.

While the staff were very accommodating, I found the selection quite small. I expected more from this museum. When we went there, they had paintings from modern artists and the usual antiquities. It was just big room. I was quite surprised. Since I am from Negros, I expected something like the Negros Museum that had like 2-3 floors.
