City Museum of Cagayan de Oro

Our second day in Cagayan de Oro was the whitewater rafting. Whew we enjoyed it to the max, planning to go back and have the advance one. We returned to the city around 2:00pm, still have time to explore the city proper then we decided to visit the City Museum of Cagayan de Oro.

The building was built in the year 1922 as a water tank. Yes it’s a water tank. It is located near Gaston Park adjacent to the St. Augustine Church. The Antiquities, memorabilia of well-known families of Cagayan de Oro city and a gallery of Cagayan de Oro history can be found in this Museum. So we were excited to visit the City Museum of Cagayan de Oro City to know the roots of the Kagayanons, but when we arrived in there it was closed. We asked the people around if it is still open, they said we should ask the city government. LOL ok so we walked away and asked a policeman. He said we can go back on Monday. Museum usually closed on Mondays but we thought maybe in Cagayan de Oro it is open. 

The following Monday we went back there, it was still closed. We had no choice but to take pictures outside the Museum because in just few hours we would go back to Manila. We were wondering how the water tank turned into a museum? That’s for us to find out someday.
