Museo Sugbo (M.J. Cuenco Avenue, Cebu)

Museo Sugbo is Cebu's provincial meseum located along M.J. Cuenco Avenue, a part of an old Spanish-era district in Cebu City. This was once the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC), home of the famous dancing inmates. Before it became CPDRC, it was called Carcel de Cebu. Designed by Dominggo de Escondrillas in 1869, the building was constructed to be the main prison for the Visayas district. Withstanding both time and the elements, Carcel de Cebu's structures made of coral stone and lime mortar have now become Cebu's history keeper.

The Museo Sugbo has the noble task of reconstructing Cebuano history; Cebuanos have the sheer pleasure of taking a time travel through viewing the museum's thirteen galleries.
