Nothing much

They have a few artifacts of the Roxas family (Philippine President Manuel Roxas) but nothing much really. Other house museums has more to show.

We took the tricycle going there. For visitors like us the regular rate per adult is 8pesos kids are free. The tricycle can transport as much as 8persons. The museum is just beside the city hall and walking distance to the old Spanish bridge. Entrance is free. The museum is well organized and has good amount of historical displays. Make... More

This museum is an old water tank. As such the structure itself is full of history. Every few months they change their theme inside to promote everyone to visit, learn and appreciate culture and arts!

It is a quaint museum. They showcased clothes, old articles and even weapons. I just wished they showcased more of the city's history. Lovely museum and you would get to appreciate their history. Just so you know, they are closed on Sundays and they have a very beautiful gift shop.

Wow! Another place not to be on your list. This is where you will know about Capiz, it's history and culture. You will be surprise on what you will see in the place! Please do visit this!

The museum was small and simple. But from its simplicity, I was able to appreciate this place for what it is. The location was perfect, just near the plaza and other local dining shops. Its external structure, humble maybe, but has this classic appeal that it's maintained properly. Inside the museum, there are messages on the wall as to how... More

I learned an immense amount about the islands history through the wonderful exhibits and accompanying texts. Although a single room inside the space is utilised to its maximum to pack in lots of interesting information. A must visit.

From a Water Tank to a Museum? Quite unusual. Yes it is small, but history spoken even by just the walls (Serves as a water tank before) which protects the cultural artifacts / preserved memoirs inside is already a big deal. The Museum is just beside the Cathedral.

The museum space is a repurposed water tank. Excellent idea to keep the original structure for posterity, and make it productive. Met one of the senior staff in the museum. She gave us the opportunity to watch videos about the Aswang and Manananggal (witches?) after seeing us zip through the rather simple display cases in the museum. They are trying... More
