Philippine Spanish History

Small museum with various artifacts of Vigan's Spanish heritage. Inexpensive (donation) way to learn some history.

It's free to visit but you're required to make a donation. It's up to you how much to give. The place is a bit small. All the interesting things are on the first floor. All the pictures and memorabilia with descriptions and short stories are on the walls. The second floor is the house itself and it is pretty scary... More

This place is a worthwhile family dynasty museum. Not super exciting but there are a few interesting relics and you can learn the tragic history of this family (one assassination and one assassination attempt). Plan about 30-45 minutes.

I think I will enjoy this museum much more if I were Filipino. I don't know much about Crisologo. There are lots of stuffs that belong to him but no much description. When I have been there, the second floor is closed, so I didn't check it. BTW, the building is beautiful.

It was past 5pm so all museum was already closed. Then, we while walking around the old cities, we passed by this area and it was still open so, we entered it. It has few historic pictures about the Crisologo. The Place is clean and very simple.

Well preserved artifacts. Well respected family in Vigan. Another great place to stop over when going on a Kalesa tour.

it's a great place to know more better of the culture of the place, if you're thinking that there is a fee for entrance you're wrong it's all free. just don't forget to bring your camera with you and travel the back to history.
