Museo Dabawenyo

June 24, 2008


One of the first places that i visit in a new city or town is the museum. Coz its where someone will have a quick and bigger picture about that place.

Here in Davao City, there are two museums. There is the old Davao Museum at Insular Village and the Museo Dabawenyo, which was opened last March during the Araw ng Dabaw.

Unlike other museums, this one is a bit small for a big city like Davao. However, it is a home to a large and rich culture that is Davao!

Museo Dabawenyo is located along Magallanes St. which is at the back of Davao City Hall. It is in front of the monument of Andres Bonifacio (rotonda).
