Museums in Cebu City. Find out the old houses and museums in Cebu City.

The Philippines is well known worldwide for its excellent shorelines at the same time, notwithstanding Vigan, Philippines would be obscure for its provincial design. There are a great deal of exceptionally old houses dissipated today over the Philippines and on the off chance that you are up for a 'take me back to the bygone eras' inclination, you are simply in the correct page for we are going to surrender an essence of these old houses and historical centers in Cebu City.

1. YAP-SAN DIEGO ANCESTRAL HOUSE

Built in the late 17th century, the Yap – San Diego Ancestral House is one of the oldest houses in the Philippines. Owned by Don Juan Yap and Doña Maria Florido, this ancestral house is still in its original state amidst the remains of weather-beaten but unyielding structures and old age.

Though the aesthetics, this house is a proof of what its like to be a God-centric home during the 17th century because the house was built with faith and devotion of a Cebuano’s family.

Location: 155-Lopez Jaena corner Mabini St., 6000 Parian, Cebu City

Operating Hours: 9AM to 6PM daily

Entrance Fee: ₱50 per head

Contact: (032) 514-3002, 514-3003 or 253-5568

2. 1730 JESUIT HOUSE (MUSEO DE PARIAN)

An 18th century house remarkably preserved behind big walls in the heart of Parian district is the 1730 Jesuit House. I am not sure if everyone is aware of its existence (until today) because this house by the Sy’s is very much hidden from the public but, the Jesuit House has now been converted to a museum by the new owners. Hence, its slowly gaining the attention of the public. Regardless of its popularity, the Jesuit House has proven to be tough for having survived various transformations – from being the residence of a religious community to a hardware store and warehouse.

Location: Zulueta Street, Parian, Cebu City

Operating Hours: 10AM to 5PM, Mondays to Saturdays (time of visit will be discussed upon appointment)

Entrance Fee: **There is no charge for a house visit but prior permission from the Sy family is needed.**

What was once called as “Carcel de Cebu” or Provincial Jail of Cebu, Museo Sugbo is located in the former Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC). Designed by Domingo de Escondrillas in 1869, Museo Sugbo was originally proposed to be the main prison cell for the Visayan District.

Location: M.J. Cuenco Avenue, Brgy. Tejer, Cebu City (formerly CPDRC)

Operating Hours: 9AM to 6PM, Tuesdays to Saturdays

6. Rizal Memorial Library and Museum

Having been inaugurated on December 30, 1939, the Rizal Memorial Library and Museum was designed by Architect Juan Marcos Arellano. The museum showcases a collection of artifacts significant to the history of Cebu.
