Frequently, rainy weather gets a bad reputation because shoes get wet, floors become slippery, and all that’s annoying when the sky turns grey. It can undoubtedly ruin beach days, picnic dates, and romantic walks after a solid lunch at your favorite restaurant. However, there are countless indoor activities to do when Mother Nature rains on your parade.

The first thing you will want to do is put on your jacket and tailored denim because you and your boo will go on a museum date! Museo Iloilo is no excuse to be bored and get stuck in bed when it’s pouring outside. If you mean to visit soon, read further about this museum below.

One of the best ways to enjoy someone’s company on a rainy day is to look at artifacts in Museo Iloilo. Inside, you can take a tour and see different cultural heritages, including stone-age trade pottery from Asian countries, era photos, war relics, Spanish-era Filipino sculpture, and modern artwork from Ilonggos.

The museum was built in 1971 and is still long-standing to pay tribute to Ilonggo heroes and ancestors. It houses artifacts of Iloilo and also Panay’s cultural and historical mementos. The museum is the first government-sponsored art gallery outside Metro Manila.

The museum tour doesn’t end with artifacts and indoor recreational activities; more is to their collection. Among the crowd’s favorites include the main exhibit of Museo Iloilo: a life-sized dummy that weaves Filipiniana and Barong Tagalog and a carbon-q4 dated remains of the Mondo tribe of Panay. Another attention-grabber is the mummified-like body of the dead Christ in a glass box!

On top of cheap admissions, museums are a great date idea because art can bring up different emotions and strike conversations. So on your next rainy free day, buy a ticket to this museum and immerse yourself and your partner in history!

Museo Iloilo is located along Bonifacio Drive, Iloilo City. They are open every Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. For the admission fee, PhP50 for adults and PhP25 for students. The museum also requires advance notice for museum visits via their official Facebook page: Museo Iloilo.
