Great quality museum with really good and interesting skeletons of thousands of different animals and fish. Some taxidermy too. Fast paced clear and succinct guided tour included, after which you are free to browse.
Best thing I have found in Davao City so far.....

We visited Asia’s largest bone museum today, taking a taxi($3.50) 7km south of the SM SM Lanang Mall.
After paying $8 for 2 seniors, we were given a 30 minute guided tour by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who studied Economics before Tourism. The 700 specimens all died of disease, old age or ingesting plastic/trash in the case with many of the marine specimens.
The goal of this museum is education about marine pollution.

The museum has added more species' bones. It's still amazing, and still one of the best museums in the country. A must visit... I love it!

It was a challenge to find but soooo worth the wait. Our kids are 12 and 10 and they absolutely found the place very interesting. It’s something different from the usual tourist itinerary.

It was okay, but as others have noted, it's a bit pricey @ 200 pesos per head (no offense to the owner intended).

Read about this museum and wanted to visit on previous trips to Davao City but didn’t find the time. It is well worth the time to visit with quite a lot of displays of skeletons of animals and sea creatures. Displays are well laid out with good descriptions and some history of the animals. One in particular was of the drunken whale. Apparently it died from ingesting the cap from a whiskey bottle. We had a taxi drop us off so no problems with finding the place. If driving your self it could be a bit hard to find as it is up some narrow streets. Definitely well worth visiting.

Yes I took a tour but at any museum in the states you will have better time. It is located close to china town but to get there drop off and let a trike take you . The road is narrow and full of people. As to the bones again not worth the time. I seen better but it was interesting to see Loolu she is a real skeleton and it amazes me of how the people treat the bones of other people. She was buried in a cemetery and after five years they dig her up and put her in a ditch. Sad but according to the what we were told that was what they do.

We visited this museum twice this year (November and December). The experience was unforgettable especially in knowing that this museum is one of only 4 of such kind in the world. It was awesome seeing the collection of bones of fish and animals, especially in knowing the stories behind the death of such animals. Made us realize that indeed, people have to take care of Mother Earth. The staff who guided us through the visit were well-versed and friendly. More power to the owner!

This museum is a must visit. Visitors will learn so much about the effects human wastes have on the life of these marine and wildlife animals. Most of the animals here died due to human selfish acts and the trash we put into the ocean. It's a sad reality but also an eye opener on how me must act quickly to save our planet.

Admission is 150 pesos that comes with a guided tour. The lady guide that was assigned to us was kinda hurrying the whole tour giving us little time to digest all the information and almost no time to ask questions. I wish the tour guides here will slow it down a bit.
