Entering this museum, you will imagine how grand and luxurious the life of the Marcoses then. It's an ironic how they have this kind of lifestyle while most people in Tacloban are below poverty line. If all valuables inside will be sold, a greater part...More

Sequestered by PCGG in 1986, this place will open your mind on the narcissicm of the Marcoses. You need to ask many questions to the PCGG staff. Bonus if you have read on the Marcos clan (from Imelda's siblings and the whole immediate family) The...More

A must see when in Tacloban. Although the place was not properly maintained by PCGG, you can still see the grandeur and taste of former First Lady Imelda marcos in its interiors and furnitures. Much better than malacanang of the north

This house was the ancestral house of our late President Marcos. This Shrine is for public it has many rooms on it named of different cities if the Philippines. Many history to find out. The entrance is very low.

This museum and shrine is a must see. It was build back in 1979-1981 by the Marcos family. Wonderful too see such treasures now owned by the people of the Philippines.

That depends, but the tour requires at least 3 people per batch. Sometimes they tour two batches, so that's 6 people. It's a great place kinda old but very lux.
