“Well-kept heritage”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

The house was well-maintained. Display tags were useful, but I thought they would offer a guided tour.

“Lotsa moey back then”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

We were there while relief efforts were being sent out but be sure and go upstairs to see the fine furniture and the spot where the chaperone would sit during courting! Yep times have changed but plenty of ornate wood carvings and old ways to keep the building cool that have been played out in recent times from the fact that the neighbors will steal anything from you if it ain't tied down. Notice the outside drying rack great idea before the jeepney was invented. Just a short walk from the Jesuit hose and the big sculpture

“somewhat disappointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

visited here in 2012 and enjoyed it very much. the only thing i didn't understand is why you aren't allowed to take pictures in certain areas. the grounds are well kept and this is a must see.

“cebu, back in time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

visiting this large wood and stone house takes you back to the spanish era - how everyday life was, how families eat, slept, and cooked. i love how the museum allows us a glimpse of the bygone ages.
