Amazing museum. Really informative. I would really recommend going here! Take the time to read the exhibits. You will learn a lot.

This place has a wealth history to share. It's very scenic and has a an excellent access road to the shrine. I suppose they could have done a better job in maintaining the place. The museum inside have nice photos , although not that much. the letters written by generals during the war surrendering to the Japanese is quite surreal. I just hope that elevator inside cross monument will be fixed sooner. Highly recommended...for overnight accommodations, Balanga does have hotels, but if you're looking for a resort-type of accommodation, suggestion is to go to bagac.
We brought our client here who was on a short business trip here since it is relatively close to clark/angeles city (1hr by private car), and the expectations we set were relatively low so it exceeded all of that. The museum was educational and chilling, the hike up the actual cross was fun, the view deck at the foot of the cross, pillars and all that stuff was great. Good enough to spend at least 2hrs of your time. The only down side is that the elevator that you use to get inside the actual cross is not working at the time of our visit, not sure if it still does since there were chains on it. So i say lower your expectations then be surprised.
This is a must - visit place for every Filipino. My grandfather was in the death march and he ended up in the death camps. He survived to tell us stories of his experience but I never imagined how it truly was.
A great day to reflect on history and take in panoramic views
Large cross which you can take an elevator to be top
Good for family or friends
Snacks and water sold at the top
Stairs and ramps so it's easy to climb your way up
Very nice memorial
