Finds Museum is amazing. It has plenty of rare yet interesting collections, paintings, and artifacts like North Korean stamps and porcelains from South Korea and England.

we always see these FINDS tarps along the highway and we got curious so off we went to visit the so-called museum. it is located in a warehouse type, nondescript structure. True to its name, what one can see inside are mostly 'finds' from shops selling antiques,collections and chinaware. On the ground floor are china ware, sculptures from the north, an extensive collection of stuff toys and fancy jewelry and beads, and metal cast toy cars. The mezzanine houses stamp and coin collection, reproduction of paintings by some impressionist artists, North Korean stamps, and old prints from American books. There were also original paintings by unknown artists. The exhibit could've been more interesting had there been extensive caption on the items but since the items on display were mostly 'finds', no description or a little bit of history to it could be made. Whenever we go to museums, we usually try to find out about the artist, the story behind the artwork, and any trivia attached to it. What we have instead in this museum are collections of the owners, not from travel abroad or here in the country but from what he/she found in curio shops and stores selling personal collectibles. What interested us the most are the metal cast toy cars which are worth a fortune i suppose. They are too numerous to be given each a caption. There are matchboxes from all over,too. Nowadays, one can hardly see matchboxes as freebies. One can tour the place in 30 minutes or less, appreciate the china ware and vases and the toy cars in abundance. The stuff toys are out of place since they are not worthy to be displayed in a museum unless they had an interesting history to it or had belonged to some royalty. Over all, the display could make do with improvements on the caption and the entrance fee reduced to a reasonable level (One hundred pesos for adults and fifty pesos for students... rather prohibitive). Still, it is an interesting place to visit.
