It was a standard local museum. Educational. We would have appreciated it more if they broke the tour to two batch since we were a group of 50.

If you're on the city center, you can drop by at this museum, it's well-maintained, and that you would be able to know the summary of Davao's history, including its leaders. There's plenty of relics and artifacts from ancient Davao.
