Museo Dabawenyo

Last weekend, me and hubby visited Museo Dabawenyo (Davao Museum) which is located along Pichon Street (formerly Magallanes St.), Davao City. I was really looking forward to visiting this museum because aside from its accessibility (I pass this street everyday), I am very excited to see the remnants of our ancestors in the past, the richness of the culture of the different indigenous communities that inhabited Davao City. Here are some photos:

Museo Dabawenyo building was formerly the Court for First Instance, restored and rehabilitated. It was established by the City Government of Davao, through the initiative of the 14th City Council under City Ordinance number 0266 - 06 Series of 2006 signed into law by Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on November 15, 2006. It was funded under the Special Education Fund of the Local School Board. First opened to the public during the 71st Araw ng Davao (Davao Day) grand opening celebration on March 14, 2008.

There was this special feeling of joy upon seeing the artifacts inside the museum. It showcased the rich history and diverse cultural heritage of the people of Davao.

But I was really frustrated because we were not allowed to take photos . I asked the lady at the information desk why, and she only said that it's the instruction of the curator. Well, it's the rule so I just took photos in areas where we were allowed to.
