I found the museum pretty interesting last year but the only problem I saw in the kind of rush that friendly lady wanted to push us through the rooms with its exhibits. Questions were not welcome at all. Also, the "briefing" and kind of menace,...More

It was a standard local museum. Educational. We would have appreciated it more if they broke the tour to two batch since we were a group of 50.

If you're on the city center, you can drop by at this museum, it's well-maintained, and that you would be able to know the summary of Davao's history, including its leaders. There's plenty of relics and artifacts from ancient Davao.

Staff or volunteers here are helpful! Nica was our guide. Small museum but entrance is free so I didn't mind even if they did not allow picture taking inside the museum. Only picture we have is the same as everybody's, the one by the stairs.
