Casa Gorordo Museum - Review

Originally the private home of Juan Gorordo, Casa Gorordo is now a museum that portrays life of Spanish expatriates in Cebu. Full of antiques and old furniture, the house has stunning architecture and design. High ceilings give it an airy, spacious quality and the use of coral stone and wood gives the house a unique feel. The house was turned into a museum in 1980 after an elaborate restoration project.

  • Great place to visit for those interested in the Filipino lifestyle during the Spanish colonization era. After paying the entrance fee and entering the waiting room, you already get a free souvenir keychain and a booklet while children get an activity sheet for drawing and for "spotting the object" using stickers. From there, a well-versed tour guide will walk you through the house discussing the history of the rooms and the items inside. He also discusses the geographical changes of Cebu by era (particularly within the area) using a huge touchscreen TV. Not only that, a video presentation about the house architectural history is also shown. You can also have your picture taken and printed in black and white using traditional Filipino clothes with historical places as background using green screen. The tour ends at the souvenir shop and the cafe. Overall, a very worthwhile experience.

  • Impressed by the professional guide we had (Michael) as well as the layout of the museum. I grew up in Cebu but only got to see it last month when we visited the Philippines. The rich history of the home was well preserved. A must-see if you're into historical stuff!

  • Casa Gorordo is a very interesting place. I love the interactive media that they use. Very hi tech. Our guide, I think she was a college student (maybe doing her ojt or something ), was very knowledgeable. The place is well preserved and takes you back to the Spanish era. We bought food from the cafe downstairs and it was really good.

  • Amazing place with well-trained tour guide. The place is well-preserved. Just follow the rules and be careful not to damage the displays.

  • Quite expensive entrance fee (Php 120.00) but it's worth the price! The amount you pay comes with a free tour. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and has a clear accent. They also give you a flier and complimentary shell keychain. The place is very well maintained and the vicinity is just a beauty. Must visit tourist destination! Add: they also have café!
