A really nice way to explore the history and culture of the island of Bohol. Well laid out with plenty of information and story telling along the tour. Quite small. But If museums are your thing it is really worth a visit.

Don't know if it's because it was a Sunday so also all the Filipinos were there, but the place was packed. The little animals are nice to look at, but the park is really small and in 5 minutes you are done.

This very well put museum is small (only one room, actually), but has good exhibits and information about Bohol: both natural and anthropological history. No entrance fee, but you can make a donation (which is very well deserved).
