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.

Read some good reviews prior to our visit but seeing the bone collection first-hand is a bit of a thrill. An entrance fee of Php 150 ($ 2-3) allows you to see 3-floors worth of the collection.
The visit could be a good learning experience for kids and adults alike. A tour guide would graciously share the history of the collection & quite willing to answer the questions you might have.

We arrived 10 minutes before closing after getting lost on the way. The staff allowed us to see the first floor since we have come anyway. The collection on the ground floor is very interesting. We'll make sure to come earlier to enjoy the museum fully.

There is an entrance fee. You can take pictures, off flash cam, no videos after having a guided tour. Souvenirs are available for sale at the entrance. One thing I remember from what they explain is that most of the species displayed died from human trashes. Ohh they also have a Megalodon tooth there wow.
