Designed with a futuristic durian-inspired exterior, the new Php200-million Museo Dabawenyo will not only display local artifacts and history but also a museum of national history.
Once open, admission to the museum will be free. The local government unit and the National Museum of the Philippines will manage the Museo Dabawenyo.
The construction of the building for the museum is a huge contribution in remembering not only Davao’s rich culture and heritage but of the Philippines as a whole.
The new building of Museo Dabawenyo was constructed inside People’s Park so that it will become a one-stop shop for tourists coming to the city.
Museo Dabawenyo is currently located at the University Avenue, Juna Subdivision, Matina but it is temporarily closed amid COVID-19 pandemic.
