A simple place with a few items, they have some interesting information but have a ways to go. It did not have any cost so it is worth a quick stop as it won't take a long time to tour.

My family had a second visit to Butuan National Museum and we found it with so much improvements going on...the building is expanding, already air-conditioned, artifacts and write ups were properly sequenced.

One can get overwhelmed with the craziness of the busy streets. This is a nice museum with beautiful grounds.

I went here from Butuan Plaza riding the R-7 jeepney. It was a 10-15 minute ride. You'll know you're near if you already passed through their public market. The fare was only P8.00. I would suggest you to visit the place upon arrival to know...More
