This is a rating for:
Museo Dabawenyo: Museum of the people of Davao (The new museum) near Osmena Park
Took a short visit during the Kadayan Festival and got a quite good impression about life in Mindanao in earlier times. Very good guides show you around and inform you not only about the history of Davao City but also rural life of Mindanao ethincal tribes. Enjoyed and will come again some other time.

Well it was just our quick stop, we spent like maybe 30-45 minutes in the museum. I must say that the way they were able to preserve the historical items inside was impressive, they were doing a good job on that, and they must keep it up. the only thing I could comment on was the lady that was assigned to guide us inside the museum. she just walked us around instead of providing us the necessary information she just let us roam on our own and read and see the entire place. It could have been nicer if she was enthusiastic and informative.

When I first went to museo dabawenyo, it was still under repair. The museum is quite small (unlike museums in Manila), but packs many information for tourists and local students. Its a must that you visit Museo Dabawenyo when visiting Davao

I asked why I can't take pictures inside. The person in charge said there was a blogger who posted pictures and nasty comments about their museum that's why they prohibited taking pictures inside their museum. Respect people! Respect!
