Hard to beat this immersive museum. It's a must-see again & again every time I visit this part of the world. A reminder to the museum to update some information such as adding the date of death of some people such as Cory Aquino, etc.

I visited the place a long time ago as part of our field trip. I can say that the place is well preserved. You can't take pictures inside.

I enjoyed the visit here because of the museum guide, he explained each area of the museum well. You can see how passionate he is with the history :) Being a Filipino-Chinese, I further understood our history here in the Philippines.
