      The Aguinaldo museum is located in a place called Jungletown by the locals. The huge statue of Gen. Aguinaldo atop a horse as well as the museum is a landmark in Baguio City, and many tourists used to flock to this place.

      Through the years though the visitors have lessened as many other tourist attractions sprouted all over the city. The museum was built to place memorabilias from the


      life of Gen.

      Aguinaldo. He is by the way the first President of the Philippines, so he’s a very important person in our history.

      The museum looks more like a house to me aside from the glass cabinets where some of his clothes are displayed. There are the Barongs (the national clothing for men in the Philippines) he wore, as well as the different military uniform.

      Some personal things ...


      • that he used during his life, like his comb and shaving equipment. There’s also the work desk that he used in the middle of the gallery.

        There are numerous photographs of himself and his family all over the museum. And I can say that he was a handsome man! There’s even the wheelchair that he used when he was confined in the hospital.

        The main display is a three

        dimensional miniature scene of his inauguration as the first President of the Republic of the Philippines. There’s also a copy of the Philippine flag that he designed, complete with the words embroided on the fabric.

        I have always been fascinated with history so this was a memorable place for me. It made me realize how lucky we Filipinos because there was a man named Emilio Aguinaldo who fought for our freedom.
