Finding Jumalon's Butterfly Sanctuary and Art Gallery, especially if you will take the public transportation, is quite difficult because of its location but the effort is truly worth it! Kuya Ariel, the tour guide, was helpful in providing information on the life of Prof. Jumalon, his life, his works and his passion. The tour was beyond our expectations - - - we expected a garden full of butterflies; what we didn't expect is the house is full of other surprising collections of Prof. Jumalon and his family. The tour was also an advocacy in the conservation of the environment which stresses on the importance of these little insects in our ecosystem. Truly, a must for everyone to visit in Cebu City!
Jumalon Butterfly Sanctuary Mini Museum and Art Gallery provides a natural habitat of 56 butterfly species and scores of moths and associated fauna. Itself a veritable botanical garden, it has grown within the 1,460 square-meter enclosure more than one hundred plant species, some serving as part of the life-support system of butterflies in their larva stages. The Art Gallery houses the water color paintings and “lepido-mosaic” of Professor Jumalon. The Professor was the first Cebuano Fine Arts graduate of the University of the Philippines. He is the first in the Philippines to use damaged butterfly and moth wings and recycled them to become works of art which he named “lepido-mosaic”.
The perfect place to study, observe and learn about butterflies. every school's educational tours destination.
Beautiful neighborhood, so much different from Cebu city! It’s situated in a hidden corner of the street but totally worth visiting. Young and talkative guide will show you the garden, picture gallery and the butterfly collection. Entrance fee: 100 php.
Educational and timeless! A novel and standout of its own...strongly recommend for those educational tours to continue the support!
