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.

The museum has no entrance fee, they only ask the guest for donations. Museum was really small, not we were expecting but there are a lot of stuff that you can read and see. Preserved animals, old shells, pre-historic human skulls, old pots, and bohol history are found here. Good place to bring your children.

This is a former church now converted to a museum with a gift shop that sells various religious artifacts to include Catholic Bibles, Rosaries, Candles, Medals, Medallions, etc. It you like museums this is the place to go as there is a lot of history involved in what use to be a church. We were informed that no cameras are... More

This very well put museum is small (only one room, actually), but has good exhibits and information about Bohol: both natural and anthropological history. No entrance fee, but you can make a donation (which is very well deserved).

It is not big and can be toured within an hour or so. Showing some archeological finds with good descriptions.Not the Smithsonian of course, but you are in a 3rd world country in a provincial town. But I liked it ! Donations are expected and should be made (50php or so)

Nice little museum showing history of Bohol. Learnt how Chocolate Hills are formed. Interesting articles on local food especially the video on how salt are being processed in the old days. Good place to get away from the heat & cool down

This attraction is free to the public. If you're at the plaza you can just walk and have a quick view at the musuem. The fossils (preserve remains of human, animals, and plants) struck my attention the most. There were also old vases and old paintings in the area.
