Crisologo Museum in Vigan City was established to commemorate the tragic death of Floro Crisologo, Vigan’s most prominent Congressman. He was killed by an unknown gunman while he was inside St. Paul’s Cathedral Vigan. The museum is a mansion of the late politician where it housed antiques, memorabilia and other prized possessions of the Crisologos.
My visit to the museum was great and it let me discover of the old items that normally a rich Filipino during the old times would have.
Entrance to Crisologo Museum
Every moment of the old Crisologo Family captured and dispayed on the wall.
Antique typewriter used by Floro Crisologo.
Filipino hats. I remember my late Papa Samuel had one these type of hats.
The second floor of the Crisologo Museum. The floor is polished. Several old photos, diplomas, ribbons etc decorated the wall.
Clay stove and Palayok.
Pig System Toilet. I find it weird. A bit gross – where would the waste go?
Sandok or laddles made of coconut husks and sticks. Perfect instrument for cooking.
The old kalesa or caruaje.
Illustrations of Filipino heroes.
