What people are saying:

Museo Sugbo is the 2nd museum I've been to in Cebu City. Officially a stopover in my Cebu City Museum tour itinerary, I went there with my boyfriend. This museum is by far the best museum I've been to, with 16 galleries available for viewing. They have artifacts predating to the pre-colonial Philippines, to the Spanish colonization era, next to the Japanese colonization era, to the American colonization era. I was amazed at how huge their collection is. They even have some original letters of the late Leon Kilat, a hero of Cebu during the Philippine revolution. This place is such a great place to learn the Filipino history.

    The Curator gave me a personal tour

    Great story about Cebu. I started my trip with the visit and it gave me inspiration and a history that is meaningful and deep. So much richness and details from prehistoric times and to present

    Okay but could be better

    Unlike Casa Gorordo which is privately run, this museum is government run (Province I think) and you can definitely tell the difference. Our tour guide was a student (Tourism I think{?} I forgot now),...
