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.

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.

NOT much there. it's a small museum, a National Museum Bohol Branch. There are a few interesting items to see BUT I wouldn't go out of your way to visit it.

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...More
