Nice Museum
Mar 2019 • Solo
It was an interesting visit, getting to be familiar about 3 different cultures. The items and artifacts are well-preserved and maintained. Guide was very informative and was accommodating to answer questions. Things you may have to bring when you visit the museum. 1. ID to enter the Capitol University campus. 2. PHP 50 per head entrance fee 3. Cameras, but you will be advised not to use Flash.

Likewise, leave an ID upon entering the university. Look for the building that houses the museum. Pay P50 entrance which already includes a guide. Airconditioned rooms and well lighted. Has 3 galleries. Three cultures: lowlanders, Maranao and Lumads. Very interesting rich Maranao life. Gift shop inside was nice. Big ticket items! I enjoyed it very much.

Pleasant and helpful museum.

The Museum of Three Cultures holds very well displayed artifacts and photographs of the region's history. It is smaller than expected but does a good job covering the basics of Mindanao, Cagayan de Oro City and Marawi City heritage. My guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. She knew all of the displays well. She also recommended the art gallery located down the hall, but I did not have time to go there. I hope to return, as General MacArthur once famously said when he visited Cagayan de Oro.

For an entrance fee of P50/person you can enter the Museum of Three Cultures. The museum is located inside Capitol University. There are a lot of ancient artifacts inside the museum which include among others, pottery from China, ancient swords and other weapons, musical instruments, etc. Go visit this place when you're in CDO.

Nice small museum of Christian, Muslim and Tribal cultures in Mindinao
Aug 2016 • Solo
This museum is part of Capital University. It has some interesting artifacts and is a nice venue in general, but many of the displays lack labels of identification and explanation. The giant 300 year old ceremonial sword is quite spectacular and was a gift from a sultan. Some of the pieces are replicas (such as the sultan’s bed) custom made for the remarkable late Madame Laureana San Pedro Rosales who founded the university and collected most of the items now on display. There was a knowledgeable and friendly student guide, however, with the lack of labelling, one can not readily tell which are genuine and which are replicas, a serious shortcoming of a museum in my opinion. Nevertheless, in a country woefully short of cultural and historical preservation, the museum is a gallant effort and a pleasant outing.

For one who is interested in culture and the host country a visit to the Museum of Three Cultures at the Capitol University could be interesting. But wich of the average tourists are interested in culture, sincere involvent and the host country ;-?

As a private school teacher from Marawi City. I always see to it that Educational Trip Itinerary includes this museum. Curators are absolutely connoisseurs of their job. Welcoming and heartfelt.
