Close to the imposing Cebu Heritage Monument these Jesuit houses are tucked away down the very drab Zuleuta Street. Just after the corner we passed a destitute family group living on the sidewalk. Preparing their food on a small fire as the dust from passing trucks and jeepneys engulfed them. Just past these pitiful people there was an open door... More

Read about this place on trip advisor and am def happy we visted. A charge of 50pesos is negligible for this slice of history. Our guide was informative and explained in detail also answering our questions with patience and interest. Def give this a VISIT have a blast.

...in an area with a few other attractions - a much welcomed historical exhibit and perspective of the area after looking at the complex Heritage monument right outside. I echo everyone's prior comments about Christian; I would want him to be my children's only teacher. Fascinating how the current owner combines a working business with a museum of local history.

We never would have known to stop here unless my mom did some sleuthing on the internet to find museums of note in Cebu. We had the good fortune of encountering Christian, the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide that I've met in the Philippines. He led my mom, my boyfriend, and me on a really informative journey through the... More

For just a 50 pesos entrance you can look back what happens hundred years ago. During our visit we met the owner who discovered that the house is more than just a warehouse but a Jesuit house hundred years ago. It was a nice visit!

This is one place my kids enjoyed visiting. Maybe because the tour guide was so passionate and exciting in telling the stories about the place.

I was insisting on visiting this place, and despite the rain that day, I'm glad we did. The fact that this little treasure is inside a busy modern warehouse is a novelty in itself. The curator Pipoy was very accommodating and informative.

I went here alone and got probably the best tour I've ever gotten anywhere by one of the curators. Super informative about the history of the house and about Cebu in general. The house itself is quite big, and there is a lot to see. Definitely go here if you can, the fee is a measly 50 pesos. The location... More

Came here after reading reviews on trip advisor, wasn't sure what to expect. Arrived at lunchtime, business reopens at 1ish, not a problem all the workers outside chilling. The house is at the back of a metal fabrication unit we paid our 50peso each and where met by Christian the museum curator who is very dedicated to the museum and... More
