The Cagayan de Oro city museum is located in a former water tower. The displays are interesting, especially the ones referring to the battle around 1900 against the American forces.

Went there with a group of travelers. The museum was once a water tower. Inside you will see things that Cagay anons used in 1940's-1960's like telephone, radio and cars.
