I enjoyed my visit but honestly, I felt a little uncertain as to what I was looking at. They need to have guided tours or someone on the upper floors to answer questions. But overall worth the visit.

There is no charge to go in this museum. It is a small museum but don't let that fool you. It is very rich in history. There was a person to take us around the museum and he was very knowledgable about the different aspects of the museum. I love history so I really enjoyed the tour around the museum and learning about Davao's history. Definitely would recommend this place.

The Museum has a strong history with a lot of artifacts and deserves a visit. This will give you a understanding of Davao's changes thought the past.

Very little information about the indigenous people of the Philippines is available. The Davao Museum is a start in educating both locals and foreign visitors about the rich cultural heritage of the Philippine Archipelago. With modernization, these cultural islands composed of the various tribal cultures are being threatened. We must make tribal people feel proud of their very own culture so that they will continue to hold onto their traditions and beliefs. It would be a shame if we could not help them to preserve their culture - as that would be just another form of extinction. I hope the Davao Museum Expands and receives much more visitors in the future. Please publicize your place some more. I totally enjoyed my visit there.

Visiting the museum is free of charge, and your party will be accompanied by an able guide who will talk about the various tribes of Davao City and give you an insight into the political structure of the city. It is quite interesting to learn about the tribes, their striking characteristics, their style of clothing and the design of their houses.
