I didn't do my research, Marcos's body was moved 3 months before I visited. The museum tells you about Marco's life before he became president but not much about his presidency which was disappointing. If you have time, I would suggest coming here. It can be combined with a trip to the church in Paoay.

there is nothing much to see for 50 pesos entrance fee with the rude lady cashier outside the door who has not trained to have customer service. rude,not courteous and she doesn't smile. the place will only take 10 minutes to see the inside ,this facility should closed down.

We were there to visit the mauseleum one week before the remains of the former President was laid at LMB. We were expecting to find a queue but we were in luck because there were only few people at the time so we took a long time viewing his remains....

Lucky for us, we got to see the mausoleum before his remains were buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani recently. The place can be found in Batac, Ilocos Norte. We first headed to the museum, just beside the mausoleum. On the entrance, there are chairs and a television where you can watch Marcos's video biography. There are paintings and... More

It gives insight to how they lived and love of family. The mausoleum is so surreal. Marcos lays in a glass covered coffin with an... More

If you like history, then this place is for you. Take a look back Pres. Marcos' humble beginnings, his love story, his reign and up until his demise. Also, you'll get to see him in flesh, which is creepy but also awesome.

It's not everyday you see the remains of a former President, perfectly preserved. It helps to see Marcos was very human too in spite of his power and role in Philippine history.
