The National Museum Tagbilaran is located on Carlos P. Garcia Avenue and was opened to the public in July 2018. The site of Bohol’s national museum used to be the 1860 Provincial Capitol Building, which was reconstructed after it had been damaged by an earthquake in 2013. 

The museum has dedicated sections where the results of the archaeological excavation and exploration of the sites in Anda Peninsula are displayed, giving insights into the prehistory of the island of Bohol. Along with this, The museum organizes artwork exhibits, such as the one featuring the Boholano artist Napoleon Abueva. The exhibit features dozens of significant works from the artist’s collection and the tools he used in sculpting. Abueva was known as the Father of Modern Philippine Sculpture and was a National Artist for Sculpture when he was still alive. These recognitions are the first for a Boholano artist.

An entire section also displays the rehabilitation efforts made on the old churches damaged during the earthquake. Also housed in the museum is documentation on the protection, conservation, and preservation of cultural properties of Bohol and Eastern Samar, which were both hit by the 2013 earthquake. These are important since they are considered National Cultural Treasures and Important Cultural Properties.
