“A Must Visit for travellers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

It may not be at par with other museums but Museo Dabawenyo has its own charm and ways of telling visitors the city's less known history. Philippine history is full of Luzon stories. Museo Dabawenyo will tell you the region and the city's evolution that can't be found in text books. Best of all, it's free/open to the public.

“It speaks of Dabaw”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

A must see for travellers who would want to know the history of the place. One would see the dreams and visions of the different tribal groups for Davao. There you would also know the accomplishments and feats of their leaders. Before going out to different places, drop by their and be grounded with their story

“Excellent History of Davao”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

This small downtown museum is chock full of the history of Davao, its people, customs, heritage and government from inception to today.
A small two story building with free admission. A museum guide will take you thru all the exhibits and give a detailed history and explanation of everything you see.
A must see if you want to know Davao and its heritage.
Highly recommended.

“well maintained”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

since we were curious about davao we managed to find this small but well maintained museum in the city. the displays were very relevant and allowed us to have a historical knowledge about davao. the guide was also very accommodating & courteous so we liked that. there were some areas under renovation so we had a limited experience. but all in all it was a pleasant place to visit.
