  1. Nice blog. I visited the museum in 2013 - it is open and they did a good well informed guided tour for us.

    You can see many more photos of the museum here - http://goo.gl/9w0G3

    It was fascinating to see the memorabilia of THE Ramon Magsaysay of the famous Magsaysay award!

    I just wish they had a nice museum cafe where we could sit and soak in the place.. It is also rather poorly sign boarded - people can easily drive past without even realizing that there is a place of such national .. nay ... international interest and significance.

    By the way, a correction - this is not the house where Ramon Magsaysay spent his years - the original house was damaged in 1990 due to the Pinatubo eruption. This house has been built in the same spot (it is not even a replica of the original house - you can see photos of the original house in the museum itself) ... however, admittedly, it looks beautiful. It has a historic look and appeal.
