Visit this out of the way attraction by hiring one of the tricycles parked along the street beside the PNP Hospital (across the Libertad Fruit Vendors Association market). There is a sign which says "Barangay Ambago" at the corner of this street and the main J.C. Aquino Ave. For P200 to P300 you can visit the Balangay Shrine Museum, Magellan's... 更多
We spent about 10 minutes here. It was interesting to see the boat relics and the hole in the ground where the boats were found. We did all the museums in a day. It was fun but wished there was more to see.
Showcase of the early balangay boat which proves that there was already trade even before butuan was established. You will see an authentic balangay boat and old coffins that were excavated. If you want heritage and history, this is a "must-go-to" place. No entrance fees too.
Balangay Shrine Museum is a one-story building that serves as a unit of the National Museum. It is located in Barangay Libertad and it houses the remnants of Seagoing Outrigger Boat or Balangay. The former is used by a community of settlers to go from one place to another, thus the name barangay or community, is driven .It is said... 更多
It's a 15-minute or so ride to this area. It's the way to the airport actually. Only go if you are indeed interested in seeing the oldest watercraft which was dug on the very spot it is being displayed. It has really few things to see in here that's why I highly recommend going to the spot where according to... 更多
Butuan is not much of a travel destination per se, but make your visit worthwhile by visiting its classic tourist spots. The Balangay Shrine is evidence of where it all began for us Filipinos, when our ancestors rode these amazing wooden boats across the seas to reach our land. The original wooden boat called Balangay is now in the National... 更多
I finally got to see this museum, it is small but very interesting. I have a friend that worked on the dig that found the artifacts that are shown here. Very interesting and the guard that was stations was helpful and knowledgeable about everything we were looking at.
It was a very limited museum, if you're expecting to see a lot. I give them credit for the effort of putting it up and preserving the finds/artifacts but there is surely much more that could be done to improve this museum. I hope they can come up with creative ideas to underline this its impact to the country's history... 更多
Anyone who is trying to trace the history and evolution of the Philippines must visit the place. While it is quite modest compared to the other city museum, it is more significant because this is the site where one of the "balangay" boats was found. These amazing wooden boats travelled through miles of sea and carried our ancestors to these... 更多
It's a good thing they were able to unearth these boats. It provides undisputable proof that there are civilizations that existed in the Philippines even before the Spanish came. Considering that the location where the museum stands is part of the Agusan River Delta system, early inhabitant would have surely flocked the area for settlement. It's a reminder that we... 更多
