I visited the place a long time ago as part of our field trip. I can say that the place is well preserved. You can't take pictures inside.

I enjoyed the visit here because of the museum guide, he explained each area of the museum well. You can see how passionate he is with the history :) Being a Filipino-Chinese, I further understood our history here in the Philippines.
