Casa Gorordo was the 3rd Museum I've been to in Cebu City. I loved my visit to Casa Gorordo because it is such a well-preserved place. The furnitures were still in good quality and pretty, the beds and the clothings featured inside the house were still neat and clean. It really shows the actual life during the 1800s. If one wants to time travel back to the Spanish Colonization era of the Philippines, visiting places like Casa Gorordo is a great way to go. Casa Gorordo is located in Parian, Downtown Cebu, opens daily, and I think they have an entrance fee. I am not quite sure because I went there for free c/o my Young Minds Academy program.
In the quiet residential area of Suwu, the museum was first built in the 1950s and later bought by the Coronado family. Coral stones at the bottom of the house will shine in the sunshine, while the upper part is made of pure Philippine hardwood, which is not connected with nails, but with tenons. Apart from Spanish style and local imprint, the building also refers to Chinese geomantic omen.
Tickets for more than 100 pesos, children discount, and have a special person to lead the explanation. This is a well-preserved old house for the rich. Through the building structure, layout and furniture decoration, we can gradually understand the history and culture of Cebu.
Should have been a private house, in the transformation, become a museum.
The Museum of Colorado has a history of 100 years. It can enjoy cultural relics and many oil paintings, and learn about the life and history of Filipinos in the past. It is worth mentioning that the museum displays all kinds of antiques left over from ancient times, which have never been seen before. We can get a better understanding of the history of the Philippines.
A famous local museum can be visited if you have enough time.
