Night at the Museum(s)

The "angel" picture was taken at one of the museums dotting the city of Cebu. The city government launched the "Gabii sa Kabilin" last night in celebration of the National Heritage Month and the International Museum Day. I am a sucker for museums. When I go to a new place, I always want to go to a museum...because it tells so much about the place and the people.

Cebu City is a culture-rich city. I love that there is always somewhere in the city you can go to -- shopping centers, food shops, museums, parks, thrift shops, etc. The City though has to reduce the crime rate and clean the grounds.

@ the entrance of the Sto. NiƱo Museum. Too bad most museums don't allow cameras inside.

my favorite museum: Museo Sugbo, once the provincial jail.

@ Casa Gorordo

Tickets were at P100. This will serve as your entrance fee to nine museums. You add P50 and you get free kalesa and bus rides to and from the museums. Bad thing, the event only happens once a year.
