Small museum located at the town center. Free entrance. Have several display and human artifacts. There is an area that display how the island of Bohol was formed millions of years ago, eg the chocolate hills.

If you want to know the history and the heritage of Bohol, make sure to visit the place. From fossils to diorama, this place doesn't disappoint. What's more, it's free.

This rather basic and unassuming museum is right downtown on the busy square, so easy to find. It is a little time word and run down feeling, but does have some interesting bits of information and is worth going to if you have the time.

Tarsier the smallest primate. They are so cute. the museum is small but informative. You can see Tarsiers, they are on the trees, you can not near them but can take photo without flash.

A really nice way to explore the history and culture of the island of Bohol. Well laid out with plenty of information and story telling along the tour. Quite small. But If museums are your thing it is really worth a visit.

Don't know if it's because it was a Sunday so also all the Filipinos were there, but the place was packed. The little animals are nice to look at, but the park is really small and in 5 minutes you are done.
