In contrast to the Museo ning Angeles, this Center was better conceptualized, better executed, and even rivals the National Museaum's presentation of historical timelines. It has multimedia, art, library, and bookstore. Just visit. You won't regret it.

As an alumni of Holy Angel University, I always try to visit this place everytime in the city. A lot of chances since I last visited the place. The place to visit to learn the history of the city. The main bldg. where the center is located is pretty much a museum by itself now. A must when in AC.
