Tarsier is a rare protected animal in the local area. It is very small and has a big palm. It makes people happy to watch. But because tarsier is afraid of noise. So you must speak softly and not too loudly. There are other characteristic animal statues in the museum. Color boa constrictor. Because we are afraid of soft animals. We skip this activity. Tarsier is the smallest primate, they are very cute. This museum is small but rich in content. You can see the tarsier on the tree, but you can't get close to them, you can take pictures without a flash.
1. In the center of Tabilalan, opposite St. John's Labor Church; 2. Free visit; 3. The exhibition hall is not big, 10-15 minutes visit; 4. Introduction to a little folk history, something interesting, such as how the ancestors here used coconut salt making.
The exhibits are quite original and the museum provides an overview of the nature and history of the Philippines, with a lot of paintings and specimens
The exhibits are quite primitive, perhaps it is the nature of this remote island.
