Tigaon Museum: The Proof of Tigaon's Hispanic Evolution


The Tigaon Museum houses old important documents, achievements, artifacts, and antiques that have captured Tigaon's Hispanic evolution - from a thriving human settlement toward its historic evolvement into a society of democratic ideology running through the Commonwealth, the war years, and present structure of governance.

The Tigaon Museum houses old important documents, achievements, artifacts, and antiques that have captured Tigaon's Hispanic evolution - from a thriving human settlement toward its historic evolvement into a society of democratic ideology running through the Commonwealth, the war years, and present structure of governance. It showcases achievements of Tigaon sons and daughters in Bicol politics, rural economics, industry, philosophy, and the arts.

The Tigaon Municipal Museum is a two-storey building located at the junction of Aguinaldo and Quezon Streets. With an estimated easement of ten to fifteen meters from the national road, this building once housed the seat of government of the Local Government Unit of Tigaon. On the second floor is the Tigaon Municipal Museum. A terrace, wooden flooring, and miniature version of a grand staircase reminiscent of old Spanish architectural design adorn this building. A marker on the lower right wing of the building indicates the time it was originally built.

Location

The Tigaon Museum is located at Poblacion, Tigaon, Camarines Sur.
