We enjoyed how this place nurtured its historical stuffs. It was really beautiful knowing that this place does exist. We enjoyed sightseeing in this mansion.

Not a Marcos supporter but its in our culture to bid goodbye to the dead before their burial. Amazing 7 layers of wax by using Egyptian mummification process. By now, mausuleom is closed in preparation for the much awaited burial at LNMB.

There is no entrance fee to the Mausoleum but there's a warning that you can't take pictures inside. There was one guy who started taking pictures and I was like, "Kuya, bawal mag-picture!". LOL! The guards then went to him and asked him to delete the photos he took. I'm such a sumbungera! But really, if we can't take photos,... More

As we went here during the summer break, there were lots of people around. I appreciated this place during my first visit which was on September 2010 as I was the only one inside. The Museum itself is OK. It contains memorabilia of the late Ferdinand Marcos detailing his achievements in school up to the time he was proclaimed the... More

To see the body of late Pres. Marcos is interesting, but the entrance fee (Php50.00) is quite expensive for it, compare to what you can see in Malacanang of the north (Php30.00).

Museum is located on the second floor. contains only few memorabilia. I would recommend and audio visual room if you want to keep visitors entertained. Mausoleum is located on the other building no picture taking inside and you are not allowed to stand still or pause to view things clearly. you need to keep the line flow going even when... More

Today us Tuesday, and we are not allowed to get inside because the arrogant care taker told us they are off. Can't she even be nicer instead?

Went to see the late president marcos. Fall in line and enter. Room is airconditioned which is needed to help preserve the body obviously. The body is enclosed in transparent glass which is located in the middle of the room. Cant gawk as much since the line moves continously. We spent less than 5 minutes in the room. Our group... More
