Lucky for us, we got to see the mausoleum before his remains were buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani recently. The place can be found in Batac, Ilocos Norte. We first headed to the museum, just beside the mausoleum. On the entrance, there are chairs and a television where you can watch Marcos's video biography. There are paintings and... More

The whole life of Ferdinand Marcos and his family is laid out for people to fathom and besieged. Very clear that the whole city is still so Much in love with this fallen leader . It gives insight to how they lived and love of family. The mausoleum is so surreal. Marcos lays in a glass covered coffin with an... More

If you like history, then this place is for you. Take a look back Pres. Marcos' humble beginnings, his love story, his reign and up until his demise. Also, you'll get to see him in flesh, which is creepy but also awesome.

It's not everyday you see the remains of a former President, perfectly preserved. It helps to see Marcos was very human too in spite of his power and role in Philippine history.

The Marcos Museum and mausoleum was locaed at Batac, Ilocos Norte. This was dedicated to the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos. The mausoleum is just right beside the museum, in between the private residence of Mrs. Imelda Marcos. The museum was originally the house of Pres. Marcos parents where he grew up showcasing various memorabilia and stories of the late... More

The Ferdinand E. Marcos Presidential Center was built and dedicated to former Philippine president. It houses memorabilia of the late president, from his stint in the armed forces down to his presidency. It also has a large mausoleum that contains the glass-encased coffin in which Marcos' embalmed body has been on public display since 1993.

Marcos Museum and Mausoleum Is the landmark of Batac, Ilocos Norte. When I visited the place last October 2, I find it interesting because you will know the history about the life of Pres. Ferdinand Marcos. And it's good also to know about the history of the Philippines during his time President.

I will not comment on the narrative being promoted by the museum as it is clearly privately established by the late dictator's family. Nonetheless, it provided a very good insight on how Ferdinand Marcos is viewed by his family and loyal followers. The museum itself has a good layout, the photos are well chosen as well as the texts. However,... More
