Syquia Mansion Museum, located in Vigan Ctiy, is a memorabilia for President Elpidio Quirino (the 6th president of the Philippines). The mansion is given by Alicia Syquia, the late president’s wife, as a dowry. I’ve learned from the guide that before, women are the ones who give dowry to men when getting married.
Entrance Fee and Opening Hours
The entrance fee is 20 pesos for adults and 10 pesos for children below 13 years of age. The museum is open daily from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 1:30 PM to 5:00 PM in the afternoon. You can also visit the place by appointment every Tuesday.
Syquia mansion is full of well-preserved but creepy antiques. The below images are what you’ll see inside:
Portraits of the late owners of the mansion are also found inside.
Vigan, a World Heritage Site, is home to a lot of historical places. Syquia mansion is just one of the museums that you can visit in the city. If you wish to see more antiques, Crisologo Museum is one of the best choices.
