This really is a must visit in Cebu if your interested in History. Beautiful old furniture and antiques, a small courtyard garden, friendly staff and guides. One of the best things I have visited in the whole of the Philippines.

They never change the facade of the house. The entrance fee is affordable and there's a tour guide who will explain about the history of the said museum. Lots of tourist and students visit there.

Thank you to Mr. Sandiego on bringing life to this once lonely house. Who knew that it was a historical site all this time. Thank you for preserving the house. I love traveling back to that forgotten era that the house has preserved.

This is a quaint old house with the furniture and accessories well-preserved. It is interesting to see the things that are used in the home during the olden times. It is quite small though. But for those who enjoy looking at how people's homes were...More

The owner has given this little gem to the people of Cebu. The staff were enthusiastic about telling us the inside stories and showing us the items on display
