Dr. Bersales is the curator of the University of San Carlos (USC) Museum, and as one of this country’s most respected anthropologist and archaeologist, expect meaningful and relevant displays that demands at least a twohour stay. USC also publishes their own books under USC Press and a display of these books can be found on Highway Mandaue in an equally interesting and history-inspired coffee shop, PhiloSophia Library Café.
There is more in this list including the Rizaliana Museum of the University of Southern Philippines Foundation, the Basilica Del Santo Niño Museum and the Cathedral Museum of Cebu.
This afternoon, I am taking my children to one museum. I still do not know where exactly as I have to factor in hunger, tantrums and the weather in the equation, but we will make this happen. This is going to be our first time to do this so I’m excited to show a part of Philippine history, or more specifically Cebu history, to my Filipino American brood.
You can read about the detailed outcome of the trip in my blog, the URL of which you can find below this column’s photo. Special shoutout to CDN photojournalists Junjie Mendoza and Tatay Tonee Despojo who made me look credible and believable, and to our editorial coordinator Raffy Escoton who insisted to have this photo taken.
From Casa Ruffolo Uno where the walls are covered with crayon marks and pencil lines; where the current favorite line is “Nanay, I pooped/peed in the toilet”; and where the living room is an ongoing demolition project, I wish everyone a happy and sane weekend!
