Crisologo Museum in Vigan
The Crisologo Museum houses memorabilia for the late Congressman Floro S. Crisologo. He was assasinated on October 18, 1970 at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Vigan. He also fought during the Vietnam War and inside the museum, we’ll see some of the uniforms he used during the war.
