As I roam around the museum, I know that it is a place where I know for sure I will come back. Displays and collections are really good in the eye and it is refreshing.

My Alma Mater. Historical findings and things are so nostalgic and amazing when you know the history of it. Goosebumps all over my body. Definitely recommend this to tourist who wants to know more about Kagayan History and the school.
