Really interesting in order to learn some more about the people of the Philippines, but something was missing and that was an explanation of the migration and mix of the nowadays residents... there was one floor and another part under reconstruction, maybe that is why

Visual displays, films viewings and ancient artifacts. If you're a history buff, this will definitely interest you. Broken pieces of china, pottery, weapons and old clothes. A nice sight to behold, to see how our ancestors lived.

It provides a good general overview of the people and culture of the Philippines. Plus it's free, central, quiet and has great AC. I liked the exhibits of the musical instruments of the indigenous people.

You may likely have this museum all to yourself, which was fine by me. There's plenty to see and contemplate here, including ancient pottery/funeral urns discovered many years ago in a cave. Who made them is still virtually unknown. Other exhibits and artifacts include a...More
