Museo Sugbo

 

After a quick stop at the Heritage of Cebu Monument, I decided to check out the newly-opened Museo Sugbo (Cebu Museum). The museum has some of the most unique pieces that tell of the rich culture and history of Cebu.

What makes the museum even more interesting is the fact that the building used to be the home of the world-famous CPDRC Dancing Inmates. Yes, you read it right. The old Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center was cleared and given a facelift, and tah-dah! What we have is an amazing looking museum!
