    I went here in the 3rd weekend of January where sinulog2023 coming back on street performance and street dance at the new venue of SRP cebu city. Firstly I visited this important church where Santo Nino ( baby Jesus) places in the shrine . The dat before Grand procession , it’s mass celebration to commemorate Santo nino first came to colonial city , Cebu by Magellane. The interior of the church itself is extravaganza arts of Gothic era. It’s crowded but the ambience was very tranquil.

    The museum covers a number of aspects of life in Cebu and in doing so the interactive video (if I can call it that) on the tablet the museum provides does an admirable job. Lots of fascinating artifacts from Cebu's past. The museum is well adorned and interesting to visit.

    Didn't really know what to expect and I was pleasantly surprised. Staff were friendly and informative. The chocolate drink was an added bonus.

    Unlike Casa Gorordo which is privately run, this museum is government run (Province I think) and you can definitely tell the difference. Our tour guide was a student (Tourism I think{?} I forgot now), she had some knowledge of her subject matters and her grammar was quite faulty but made up for all of it with her attitude, smile, and very pleasant disposition. There were two sections of some five presentations, that had airconditioning and the rest you sweat like everybody else. The place is very accessible, and can be, maybe, enjoyable.

    It was interesting to see the building which is somewhat dilapidated but interesting nonetheless, particularly as the likely future president spent some time here .

    Of course, there is an entrance fee but you get a guide who tours you around the house, explains the history of the rooms and items, answers any questions you may have and takes your pictures, to boot (which is a good thing cos they know the best places, angles and lighted areas).

    Very nice to see a heritage house so well maintained although the guide did say that most of the furnitures/items in the house were a hodge-podge of antiques donated by various high-society families from Bacolod. Still, we enjoyed the tour and learned some things about Bacolod and pre-war society life

    They also have a mini-souvenir shop at the back

    It was interesting to see the paintings and other things on display as they tell you a lot about the place and its history. Entrance fee was also reasonable.

    Excellent refurbishment. Interesting exhibits on the restoration of centuries-old churches after the 2013 earthquake. The current exhibit on works of native son and National Artist for Sculpture Napoleon Abueva is a must-see.

    This is tucked away down a side street but worth a visit if you can find it.There is a lot of history in the building so you can take a while here or be quite quick if you don't want to look at the personal effects in too much detail.

    It is located around the Santo Nino Basilica. It is a small museum that displays the beautiful vestments and jewelries that were represented to be donated by people whose prayers via the intercession of Sanyo Nino were granted.

    Taking picture is not allowed here. There is a 30 pesos per person entrance fee.

    The museum has been moved to the former prison right next door. They've done a lovely job restoring the former prison which is now very bight and airy with a lot of space.

    Unfortunately there are only two rooms with anything of interest to see here. The plus side is that this is free to enter so, if you have an hour spare, this is worth stopping in to see.

    This was the last attraction that my Guide/Driver and I visited in Siquijor before rushing back to the Port for my ferry to Dumaguete.

    It is not really a Ranch, but more of a Museum where the Owner displays his personal collections and creations. My guide said that the Owner's name is Daryl Cuaresma.

    His collections include old telephone, washing machines, tools, stuffed animal heads, boots, pictures of American actors, big vehicles, wine collections, etc.

    What I like best are the pieces of furnitures that were represented to be made by him: tables, chairs, wood decorations, etc. that he personally carved himself.

    Highly recommended to visit! Entrance fee is 100 pesos per person, Taking pictures here is allowed.

    I went here last month and I really admire the way the museum shows all the art with its meanings. There aren't that many paintings or art that were displayed. However, the overall ambiance was aesthetic and minimalist. Moreover, the entrance fee and the employees were approachable.
