In the same complex as Baclayon Church of the Immaculate Conception, though it is separate in the sense that the museum charges an entrance fee and the church does not.

I always appreciate historical attractions but this place is very uninteresting since it has nothing to see, nothing to do and look more like an abandoned warehouse although being under maintenance. I am disappointed with the way they preserve antiques in here: dusty and pathetic, looked like nobody care.

Out of the 40 churches, i visited at least 10 of Bohol's churches after the earthquake which damaged most of the churches. Sadly, almost all of them are being restored but the grandeur and solemnity of the churches were very apparent.

The museum is attached to the church. Many old belongings to the church people over 500 years. Also many documents since 1565 kept in a closet. No photos allowed inside

This museum is small in size, however, still carries a handful of religious artifacts reflecting the legacy that the Spaniards left on the island. Aside from the ecclesiastical vestments, there are other items on display which were used during the ritual of the Mass that dates centuries back such as the hymnals or the cantorals of Baclayon. Quite interesting place... More

The Museum is attached to the Baclayon Church. The church was closed when we visited so we went to the museum. It is rather dusty and drab but it has some nice religious artifacts. There is a pleasant garden in the back.

It is very easy to stop and visit this special church, and they need help in 2016 and beyond to gather enthusiasm to continue with repairs from the earthquake that hit them especially hard. It costs less than one US Dollar for official entry. There is a museum and the church (currently closed for rebuilding).

This old church and museum was destroyed during a strong quake. Now they are trying to restore it, so that the next generation will be able to see this wonderful heritage.

The church and museum are attached and the church is currently undergoing some renovation. You can walk into part of the church, but a large portion is off limits. You can take photos while in the church, but no photos are allowed to be taken inside of the museum. The church is cool to see if you like old architecture.... More

Baclayon church otherwise known as San Agustin church was built in 1596 and is one of the oldest in the Philippines. Unfortunately is was devastated during the earthquake of 2013. The museum houses interesting pieces from candelabras, priest garments, religious icons, ancient documents, etc.

I spent only about 10 minutes in the museum. It has some old relics that were interesting, but also old and dusty. The church is lovely, but undergoing renovations after the earthquake, which took away from the experience. Definitely worth a bit of time, but don't plan to be there for more than 20 minutes altogether. Photos in the museum... More
