The Sablayan Museum

The first and only museum in Occidental Mindoro, the Sablayan museum is a showcase of rich historical, cultural and biological wealth of Sablayan. Established in January 16, 2007, its first collection of artifacts were built from community efforts of Sablayenos who donated/lent out personal heirlooms and family collections for public education and appreciation. One of its unique feature is the “nature” section where one can have a simulated experience of Sablayan’s forest and underwater wonders.

The Municipal museum stands as a testimony to Sablayeno’s pioneering spirit as we trail blaze projects and programs for others to follow. Opened daily, and on weekends upon request, the museum had become “a must see” for local and foreign educational and ecotourists.
