Museums in Cebu, Philippines

There is a lot to know about the oldest city in the Philippines. Cebu—a city, a province, an island—is the cradle of Christianity in the Far East. That sole fact is already teemed with history. Catholicism is a massive factor in the molding of Cebu’s past, present, and future. If you want to want to know the names behind the names Cebu, Lapu-lapu, or Mandaue, visit a museum. If you want to see how Cebu looks like years ago, visit a museum. If you want to see how houses look generations ago, visit a museum. If you want to learn the politics of this beautiful island, visit a museum. Or if you are the type who loves the smell and silence of oldness, yes, visit the many museums in Cebu. There is nothing better than knowing a place than a peek to its past.
