Excellence is what you'll see in how the bones are presented. It's fascinating to see & surprising that this is in Davao. Very informative. There are even skeletons of animals from other parts of the world. It's kind of like the Smithsonian in Washington, DC. Highly recommended. Bring the whole family!

This was an interesting collection!! I was a bit surprised at the sheer number of bones they have. The displays are done very well and the skeletons have been reconstructed really well. The guide was very interesting, and she was keen to share her knowledge with us. The best part for me was the stories they have of some of... More

The museum is a good place to visit especially for students. They educate the kids about the environment while discussing the exhibits. They also allow picture taking. It is not only reserved for students, I saw one couple stealing 30 minutes of their coffee break.

Aside from human skeleton, I haven't gone yet to animal bone collection not until I went to D' Bone collector. I was amaze how big are these water creatures and at the same time, I was felt hurt knowing the cause of their death.

This three storey museum in a narrow street almost opposite a smeily drain is the last pace one might expect to find a premises devoted to trying to educate us about not placing litter so that it flows into waterways and eventually into the world's oceans, killing fish, sharks and dolphins. I met the USA-accented owner who was very good.... More

The bone collection is unique, very interesting you see the bone composition of creatures as small as a rat to as big as a whale. There are are a few prehistoric pieces at the ground floor... More
