Crisologos Museum Jul 09, 2008
In one of the many old houses in town you find a small museum run by the Crisologos family. The entrance fee is set to zero making it a good opportunity to go in and see how the rich families in the area used to live.
The family was an old political family with the wife Carmeling Crisologo as the former governor while her husband Floro was a congressman until he got killed.
The ground floor got a library with the books of the family you can have a look in if you like and there is the cloth with blood and everything Floro was wearing when he got killed. There is also an old beat up car Carmeling was in when someone tried to kill her but they did not succeed.
What is really interesting in the museum is the upstairs room which is still furnished on you gets to see how the family used to live. With the huge dinning hall and the big living room. Plus the elegant bedroom in the house. And in the dressing room of Carmeling you will soon realize Imelda was not the only woman in the Philippines who liked her shoes.
