The Carcar City Museum: a museum we can truly call our own

The Carcar City Museum

The Carcar Dispensary building breathes new life as the first museum in Cebu south by a local government unit. The First Charter Day celebrations centered on the opening of the repository of artifacts loaned by locals. The Governor of Cebu herself a heritage conservation advocate led the launch along with the local government officials, teachers and guests from nearby towns.

Heritage advocates from Carcar have long lobbied for the conversion of this historical landmark into something the Carcaranons can be proud of.

One of the most distinctive buildings in Cebu and perhaps in the whole country. It is also one of the legacies left by Don Mariano Mercado, the proponent of the beautification of Carcar. During his term as Mayor he inaugurated some of the most beautiful landmarks in Cebu, among those is the municipal pool behind the Dispensary building, the Carcar Rotunda and the Rizal Monument.

Indeed a historic and victorious feat.

Museum opens everyday from 8:00AM-12NN and 1:00PM-5:00PM.
