“Very interesting representation of all regions of the philippines”

Sto. Nino Shrine and Heritage Museum
Ranked #2 of 16 things to do in Tacloban
Attraction details
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Imelda marcos designed this to represent and show all the many different regions and cultures of the philippines. From memory there are over 10 bedrooms on the ground floor each one designed to show the life and culture of the philippines. It also shows the social leanings of the marcos family and their ties with famous people like Chairman Mao and golfing great Jack Nicklaus. On the downside the building and the treasures are not being looked after and are in a bad state. The building and much of the furniture has been damaged by termites. Come on Philippine Govt this place should be preserved! Definitely worth a visit and i recommend the guided tour!

I thought I was visiting a church shrine, but it was an interesting glimpse on how wasteful the Marcos era truely was for the Philippines. The place must have been magnificant in the early 80's, but now it is a faded echo of what was.

This is the home area of the former first lady and it shows, the people still view her with respect.

Well worth a visit for the history.

This has clearly been Grand a long time ago. But now it looked neglected and badly needs attention. We cannot discount the historical value though. We should learn from past mistakes.

Nice heritage museum but this need careful attention now unlike when this was first cared by the originator. The organization of items displayed were in its specific places well segregated theme.

Amazing items and one could think how much would these all worth today. Altogether this museum still have helped generate revenue for the city.

Come and see it for your self.. it is worth a visit.
