For an entrance fee of 20 pesos (adult) one can have a glimpse of Marcoses lifestyle. The palace is not as lavish as I expected to be.

You will be brought back to the history. The house is owned by the Marcoses. The house is preserve from the furnitures, bed and paintings. You will also discover the late president projects when he was still in office.
