Information about Museo Ilocos Norte
Museo Ilocos Norte
Museo Ilocos Norte is situated in Laoag, Ilocos Norte. It is an excellent representation of the rich heritage of Ilocos and the ethnography of the Ilocanos, Igorots, Itnegs, Yapayaos and other ethnicities of the province.
The museum is housed in an existing Tabacalera or a tobacco warehouse close to the Provincial Capitol. The warehouse used to be a plain brick structure among the other chain of brick structures built in Ilocos during the 19 th century. The tabacalera was then converted to an enthralling two-storey museum.
From the old household implements to farming equipment to the ancient bahay na bato house models to the significance of garlic in their lives, a trip to the Ilocos Museum is a visual treat.
