D’Bone museum is tucked away in a location that forces you to get off the main streets and see life in Davao City. As most of Davao, it is completely safe. The museum is three stories, has air conditioning and is simply amazing. They also have a very small, but extremely unique assortment of gifts available for purchase. If I... More

Well, what can we expect? Different bones inside, souvenirs are also sold inside the museum. A plus would be the bone collector himself is there cheerful for a photoshoot with you. The place is accessible by a tricycle. Visit the place if you're into bone collections of animals.

This place doesnt have much ads. Going would also make you think because of the tight street with motorcycles and tricycles everywhere. Once you get near the place, you would notice that the beach is already a few meters away from the building. Once inside, first impression would be wtf is this it? But when you've approached the desk for... More

Schools should include this place in their educational field trips. They educate us how to take care of our environment esp proper garbage disposal . Our tour guide Ms. Princess is very accommodating. I'll be back soon bringing with me my friends.

Excellence is what you'll see in how the bones are presented. It's fascinating to see & surprising that this is in Davao. Very informative. There are even skeletons of animals from other parts of the world. It's kind of like the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. Highly recommended. Bring the whole family!

This was an interesting collection!! I was a bit surprised at the sheer number of bones they have. The displays are done very well and the skeletons have been reconstructed really well. The guide was very interesting, and she was keen to share her knowledge with us. The best part for me was the stories they have of some of... More

The museum is a good place to visit especially for students. They educate the kids about the environment while discussing the exhibits. They also allow picture taking. It is not only reserved for students, I saw one couple stealing 30 minutes of their coffee break.
