This can be viewed along the road. It is located on the yard of the Price Mansion. On a lucky day when the gate is open, you can get in and explore the Price Mansion as well. This is an Ingress portal.

This is an essential visit for those interested in World War 2. There are two rooms with dusty displays of photographs and memorabilia. The building was closed when I visited on a Saturday, but the caretaker kindly ket me in and escorted me around.

Poorly maintained and of little interest. Only thing of possible interest is a statue of Mcarthur doing the hand-over of control of Philippines back to the Filipinos after WWII.
