“A real gem of History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

An excellent museum with extensive displays highlighting the history of Butuan and Mindanao. It gives you a much better insite to the people and the place. I would highly recommend visiting here first as it will place in perspective the other area highlights you may vsit.

“Die aelteste Siedlung der Philippinen?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2011

Butuan soll die aelteste Siedlung der Philippinen sein. Das Museum ist recht interessant. In zwei grossen Ausstellungsraeumen werden viele Exponate, gut sortiert und beschrieben gezeigt. Im Empfangssaal sind umfangreiche geschichtliche Beschreibungen angeschlagen. Es gibt auch einige Schaukaesten und einen Bildschirm mit abrufbaren Informationen. Mit etwas Glueck bekommt man gute Infos von den Angestellten. Das Museum liegt in einem Park in dem viele Baeume und Straeucher mit Beschreibungen versehen sind. Es liegt in der Naehe der "City Hall". Etwas versteckt findet man dort auch das "Tourist Office".
