Artifacts, history, memorabilias, earthenwares and preserved documents and letters are the main attraction of the newly opened Museo Sugbo. The museum is situated along MJ Cuenco Street. The building is used to be the Cebu provincial jail.
Historian and artistically inclined patrons will surely flock their way to Museo Sugbo. The place is right to be converted into a museum. One will never be astray since a huge tarpaulin is displayed on the right side of the main facade of the edifice.
Museo Sugbo as of the moment houses three segments – the provincial museo, which showcases the father of Sugbo and the Rama, who among the few true blooded Cebuanos who contributed much in what is Cebu at present. Second is the Philippine Political History Museum which displays the portraits of the Philippine Presidents. Lastly is the National Museum which flaunts the earthen wares which were excavated by archeologists. It also exhibits the gold necklace which was excavated by USC staff in one of the lots in Argao.
If you’ve been to Fort San Pedro, you will see the most of the artifacts were used to be exhibited there. Not the mentions some materials borrowed from different institutions and individual like University of San Carlos Museum.
Though not yet finished, another building facing the main entrance will soon be open to public as the National Library. Adjacent to the building is the wishing well in the midst of unfinished garden.
I would like to commend SG Necomedes (sorry but I forgot his last name) for a very warm welcome. He even explained to me most of the things that you can see inside the Museo Sugbo. It only shows how knowledgeable he is. Not to mention that he also volunteered to take some photos of me since I went there alone Im such a loser. hehehe) Good Job SG Necomedes.. Keep it up!
