A Visit to Gen. Paulino Santos Museum
I have mentioned in a previous blog how some Generals haven’t even been tourists or visitors to Gensan’s, or Socsksaregen’s, tourist destination. So on this blog, I am going to give you a glimpse of Gen. Paulino Santos Museum located in NDDU. From what I’ve read, the items from Gen. Santos’ life were turned over to the museum in February 2007.
The museum is organized in a way that you see the majority of the place upon entering. There is a P 5 entrance fee or donation to see the museum. (Please give more if you can!) It is small for all the other possible things it can contain. Majority of the display are of Gen. Santos’ life. Most of artifacts from the General’s personal things are still in good shape. It was fascinating to look at his wardrobe, his tailor’s patterns for his clothes and documents.
There are also a few artifacts of South Cotabato and from Manny Pacquiao.
The coin collection of Bro. Lubrico was also on display.
I am not blown away from what I saw BUT for me, it is a good start anyway. There was not a lot to see and there could be more people visiting the museum. So please do try and visit the museum. The money from your visit, I am sure, can help the museum management.
