For those who want to know more about WW2 in the Pacific, mandatory like Corregidor Island in Manila Bay.

December 17, 2021: website mentioning that museum (as well as Mount Samat) are opened. Fine, travelling from Manila to dicover. Nothing opened, neither Bataan museum nor Mount Samat memorial. With guys just telling us that we are wrong. Forget it, better to go to Wikipedia, will be more educational without loss of time.

Set inside a school and former military barracks this is a must see museum.
This historically significant site, which is also the location of the 'Surrender Site', is a must see for Filipino, American and other nationalities who have any interest in the horrors of WW2 and the history of the Philippines during Japanese occupation. This small museum documents the events of the surrender and the subsequent Bataan Death March. A sobering piece of history.
Currently its P50 admission for adults.

We visited this place as a side trip going to Morong, Bataan. It's located inside a public elementary school and it was quite small, maybe only about 100 sqm inside. However, there was a lady who talks about what happened during the war. It made it more interesting and alive for the kids. There was also a short video clip to give you some sort of history if you know nothing about the death march. Photos and videos aren't allowed inside though. But overall, it was alright.

Beautiful monument, fun and short museum, I would defiantly recommend coming to drive to the different monuments, commemorate those who fought, and take in the view. The museum on the hill, with the large cross had an entrance fee but all the other monuments were free.

Not much artifacts to qualify as a museum. But the retired teachers who maintains this place are all great. One of them is Lola Maria, she was 19 when the Bataan battle happened. She explains the history and all her experiences passionately, kids love hearing her stories.
Great place to stopover when in Bataan.

This is a most see if your a WWII history buff or just interested in the war. I visited on 9/4/2018 . I found the place to be very clean. There is a road going up to the cross, or you can take the stairs ( be in shape if you walk ). They do have shops at top for drinks and souvenirs.

Note: They will not let you take pictures inside museum. out side ok

A must do if visiting Balanga and Bataan. We arrived here, expecting a very basic museum with little to do. However the staff there made it extra special all of whom are ex-teachers or volunteers.

There are lots of items to look at and see, so much information to read. They had a lady who had survived WW2 and was witness to the Bataan Death March, she showed us around while telling us incredible stories she had seen. I bought a Bataan death march marker souvenir on my way out, it is now one of my favourite souvenirs i have. Only downside to me is that you're not allowed to take photos in the museum, any that have been uploaded here have been taken against the museums permission.
