Located on m.j cuenco ave., if coming from the colon area, it'll be on the right side. There is a street right before you see the front entrance to the museum (again coming from colon), make the turn and you'll see a gate to the...More

The museum used to be a prison. Considering the minimal entrance fee, a trip to this museum was a treat! Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable Tourism students served as our guides. A well-stocked museum shop would be a welcome improvement.

I still love this place as a historical and relaxation park. You get to see history of Cebu as it unfolds with all the Spanish documents and pictures. Love Cebu indeed.

I often like small to mid-size regional museums more than large national museums because the collections are less edited, fresh, and the focus on local history is strong. The interesting bonus here is the architecture itself: designed in 1869 by Domingo de Escondrillas, the lone...More

This historic building used to be the Cebu City gaol. The ticket office is to the side. The girl hand wrote a receipt. Surely they could use a cash register instead? Entrance is P75 for foreigners and P30 for Filipinos. This dual pricing is more...More

I went to Cebu not really knowing anything about the history of the island so it was great to see artefacts and get information from ancient times up until now. We had two guides who were both interns and they were very friendly gave us...More
