it's not so often that we can visit a museum about our own local history. Very interisting for students or any other.

Aside from their cool aircondition against the hot summer, i really didn't find their artifacts interesting. Maybe because the museum lacks curator. The description printed in the artifact seemed general and doesn't convey deeper information

This is a good museum to visit to get first-hand viewing of tools used on different historical ages of the Philippines. An infographic on the Philippine history is also inside the museum. The museum is open from 0830h - 1700h.

The museum is quite small but it is filled with interesting pieces. There's so much to learn from what's displayed there. What I found to be most interesting are the ones from Siquijor and the burial jars.

The museum is small but you can learn a lot from the exhibits. It's a good rest place after strolling the campus because it's cold here. Ü Worth visiting when you're in the area.

The museum was already transferred to Hibbard Avenue from Silliman Hall. Entrance fee is Php 50. The museum is dedicated to excavation finds.
