Museo Sugbo - Review

Once the Provincial Jail of Cebu , this museum was incorporated at this historic place in 2004 and since has attracted thousands of visitors for not just the uniqueness of the location but also the richness of its exhibits. The exhibitions take visitors through various phases of Philippine history; right from the Stone Age to the revolution of 1898 to even the American Liberation. The lives of Sen. Vincent Rama and the Abbellanas are showcased and the detailed information regarding their work is especially noteworthy. Spread over six galleries, the Museo Sugbo is a delight to visit because it comprehensively covers various aspects of the political and historic journey of Cebu in particular and Philippines in general.

Museo Sugbo, Cebu City Reviews

  • Wonderful museum with a lot of interesting and important historical data and artifacts that walk you through the history of the Philippines. I especially liked it because the earlier documents that they have are all written in Spanish (since they were under their power for hundreds of years) and so my husband and I could read them :)

  • The museum is quite small considering the rich history of Cebu. The student guide that got assigned to us was relatively new so she wasn't able to answer some of our questions. I'm sure with the right guide, the rich history of Cebu would have gotten more alive.

  • During my time of visit, Tourism OJTs offered a free tour. The tour guide needs more improvement but it was a good practice. The museum contains a lot of items which can be better maintained and displayed.

  • We went there when it's almost closing time and they let us enter for free :> | Some of the antiques aren't related to Cebu's history but it's a great museum for Philippine history. There's also a souvenir shop and i thinks it's really great. They sell cheap hand made items and the artworks displayed is pretty nice.

  • Museo Sugbo is the Cebu Provincial Museum located in the former Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC), four blocks from Plaza Independencia. This museum comprises several galleries in a sturdy old coral-stone building that was Cebu’s provincial jail from 1870 to 2004. Most interesting are the Spanish era and American era galleries.
