  • This museum has very knowledgeable tour guides. I will definitely recommend this to schools and if possible, tell other institutions to include this museum in their itinerary when they have an educational tour. The tour guide, Rave ( ask for him if you go there ) was kind and ready to answer any question that we had for him. The house was able to tell a lot of stories of the Mestizos and the Filipino culture as influenced by the Spaniards, and even by the Chinese and Japanese with their Porcelain Chinaware with Geisha designs. We didn't get to visit the souvenir shop and cafe since it was already closed when we finished our tour so we are definitely going back there to try their frappe!
  • well maintained museum and the tour guide is funny and explains well about the history of the house as well as the city of cebu. entrance fee is 120 adult you get a free key chain. best experience when visiting ancestral houses.
