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

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.

Showcases Davao's history and cultural heritage. Must visit when you're in Davao. Tour guides are friendly and the tour itself is very infromative.

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.

This is a fairly good museum though very small. It has two levels and exhibits a varied collection of artefacts, photos and models showing the evolution of Davao to its present time.
Lighting could be better, as the middle portions of the halls are dark-ish, but the more than friendly guide made up for that with his excellent explanations.
Of particular interest is a painting at the entrance made from spiky durian skin.
Only things I didn't quite like were the lighting as I said earlier, the tiny premises and the fact that photography was not allowed at all inside the museum, even with out strobe.(flash)
