In the same complex as Baclayon Church of the Immaculate Conception, though it is separate in the sense that the museum charges an entrance fee and the church does not.

The cathedral itself was under repair and not open for viewing. One of the curators told me they hoped to have it opened by this December. The museum itself was a varied collection of poorly maintained artifacts on the second floor. There were spaces between...More

I always appreciate historical attractions but this place is very uninteresting since it has nothing to see, nothing to do and look more like an abandoned warehouse although being under maintenance. I am disappointed with the way they preserve antiques in here: dusty and pathetic,...More

Out of the 40 churches, i visited at least 10 of Bohol's churches after the earthquake which damaged most of the churches. Sadly, almost all of them are being restored but the grandeur and solemnity of the churches were very apparent.

The museum is attached to the church. Many old belongings to the church people over 500 years. Also many documents since 1565 kept in a closet. No photos allowed inside

The Museum is attached to the Baclayon Church. The church was closed when we visited so we went to the museum. It is rather dusty and drab but it has some nice religious artifacts. There is a pleasant garden in the back.

Baclayon church otherwise known as San Agustin church was built in 1596 and is one of the oldest in the Philippines. Unfortunately is was devastated during the earthquake of 2013. The museum houses interesting pieces from candelabras, priest garments, religious icons, ancient documents, etc.
