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!
Facade of the Museo Sugbo. Nice isn’t it?
The large tarpaulin beside the front door. The tarpaulin features some very awesome shots of Cebu.
The fence and the lamps. They look lovely.

The museum has four main rooms. This one hold the pieces related to the American occupation in Cebu as well as the local heroes during the Spanish rule.
This other room has the pieces related to the Japanese occupation.
Nice looking passageways.
Another tarpaulin at the back part of the museum. The tarpaulin features the most important personalities in Cebuano history.
The area in front of this building used to be the marching area of the prisoners.
More quarters still being developed/renovated.
On our way out, the two neighborhood kids willingly posed for the camera.
