Unique and historical. Two storey house with a guided tour. Very interesting. You are also free to touch the furniture and sit on the chairs. Lot's of photo opportunities. Definitely worth a visit. Quite stuffy and hot inside.

The vibes were really from another era. Very old fashioned type of house, like ones in Vigan. Pricey entrance for just a short/quick tour of the house, only 2 floors.

People were very nice and interesting as visited as part of a city tour. However would not recommend as a special visit.

It feels though you are transported through time walking through the Yap Sandiego house. It is not a long stop, but the entrance fee was reasonable.

A very interesting collection of well-preserved furniture and other items used by a family in Cebu. In the interest of continued preservation, perhaps something should be done to prevent leaks and water entering the house, and visitors should be discouraged from sitting on furniture. The...More
