This museum and shrine is a must see. It was build back in 1979-1981 by the Marcos family. Wonderful too see such treasures now owned by the people of the Philippines.

Expensive. From entrance to souveneir. Mainit pa. Good thing youll still amaze by some of the structure. But over all not worth the price

The place is old and deteriorated. It's dusty all around and very dark. Good thing my camera captures good photos. If you dob't have good eyesight, walking with very dim lights might be a problem.

A great glimpse into the past of the Philippine Leader no matter the individual view. A large rectification of damage sustained in the tsunami has enable the facility to be restored to an acceptable level of representation of the past. Sad to see the water damaged items but those that were salvaged show the craftsmanship of the era past. I... More

I was expecting the worst based on some reviews here, but the experience was thankfully better. Arrived a rainy weekday, and proceeded to have the full tour - our leader was very knowledgeable and would answer any question I had about furnishings of room themes. The condition of the house is could be so much better, but it would take... More

I came to the museum as an individual. At first, the "tour guide" assigned was accommodating, however when a group of people (5 people) came in and joined me, she disregarded me and didn't treat me the way she used too. I was disappointed because I kept on asking questions like "Was this place really occupied by the family before?"... More

This place was Imeldas getaway. There are many themed rooms and some of the furnishings are unbelievable. There are massive dining tables, ivory carvings, Ming dynasty collectables. The visitor is escorted through by a tour guide. A lot is very dark but you can just imagine the hussle and bustle of the place in its hey day. Sadly the place... More

Amazed of some personal collection of antiques and pieces of furniture of the Marcos family. Each room showcases different motifs from the bedroom, the ballroom, the living room, the dining area and its interiors. Amazing to see huge chandeliers and jars. Needs big amount of fund to renovate the place.
