The museum has been moved to the former prison right next door. They've done a lovely job restoring the former prison which is now very bight and airy with a lot of space.

Unfortunately there are only two rooms with anything of interest to see here. The plus side is that this is free to enter so, if you have an hour spare, this is worth stopping in to see.

Great façade and the histories were brought to the present by the artefacts, but the area was too small for a bustling city like Iloilo.

The Museo Iloilo has showcase the Illongo artifiacts. You could see the religious icons and artificats being preserved by this Museum. Illongo's should promote this because it is cultural heritage. Although the place is somewhat dusty and needed some constant cleaning to have it presentable to local and foreign tourists.

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 museum takes you back to the past and makes you say "ah, kaya pala", "ah, ito pala yun". It'll make you dig your roots. Entrance fee is Php50.

Inside of the Iloilo Museum have a lot of antiques and prehistoric displays. It was an educational tour when I visited and roamed around inside the Iloilo museum. It was a pleasant to me to explore inside the Iloilo museum.

The museum is right in the heart of Iloilo city, so if you're in the area, it's worth a visit, especially if you enjoy going to museums. It's not a huge one but it's well-taken care of and collection is small yet notable. Entrance fee is P25.

Visit the website for upcoming exhibits.

It’s nice how they are able to preserve things so the younger generation can appreciate them also and not just read them from books. The students who act as hosts were very accommodating and knew their facts well !

If you would like to know more about the colorful history of Iloilo,Museo is the place to go.Our tour guide was very nice and helpful,although I must admit that he needs to brush up a bit more when it comes to the places of interest and history.I do hope the Local government does something to improve it..

Entrance fee is 50 pesos. There is no tour guide but you're in luck if you can get one of the interns to give you a tour. It's literally just one room with a few paintings and relics. There is a a section showcasing the natives. It showed the jars, clothing and ethnic practices of the people. Another section showed development of Iloilo during the war. Many pieces were donated. The innermost section present the relics left in the churches during Spanish colonization. The museum is obviously dirty and not well-maintained even if its just a room. It's unfortunate that the local government neglects this place of culture and tradition.
