I really appreciate the museum. Although, the locals there said some of the original stuff inside were stolen/lost/missing after Yolanda. I still think it is a beautiful museum that showcases imeldific arts from paintings to banana fiber walls to butterfly collections to Mao Zedong figurines. I wanted to post all of the pictures but I don’t want to spoil it for everyone else.

I had mixed feelings seeing all of those expensive furniture, paintings and materials used to build the place. From Malang paintings to King Louie table set. Imagine how much it costs. Ugh!

It was nothing special. Firstly, the entrance is 100/pax if your group is 3 or less, then 60/pax if more than 3. You also have to pay an additional fee if you want to take pictures, which is 30 per gadget.
The tour guide talked so fast we can barely understand what she was saying. We can tell that she was in a hurry since she would walk to the next room even though we're clearly not finished with the current one. And apparently, you can only take a lap once, so we just decided to stay behind and take pictures and opted out of her stories.
Lastly, the place has no real history. It was built to be a place to keep the Ramos' things/souvenirs. Such a waste, since most, if not all, of the things were not properly preserved and were deteriorating.
The exterior is amazing though.
