Museums are among my favorite places. It speaks a lot of the place's history, culture, traditions, and ancient technology. It excited me to know there's one in the City of Tagbilaran, and so we paid a visit. I was touched by the staff's sincerity - including the guard - trying to explain to us the displays. They even tried to recall the common names of the bird in Boholano and Tagalog. They were sorry that there were no labels. As I went around and made a closer look at each piece in the museum, I was silently wishing that there be captions, explanations, background of each piece... some had, most had nothing. It was good to see paintings of local heroes but wished there were more writings and stories about them. I am hoping that the government would invest to improve the place - and all the other museums nationwide.
