PIA Press Release

Panabo museum agri-industrial, cultural halls ready

by Jean Duron-Abangan

Davao City (27 November) -- Panabo City government has opened the Panabo Museum and Bulwagan Center with its agri-industrial and cultural halls ready to receive visitors, especially students for a learning tour.

In an interview, Panabo City Tourism Officer Jan Marie G. Café said the agri-industrial hall which was opened on November 19, had been completely done through the sponsorship of Antonio Floirendo Foundation of Tagum Agricultural Development Co., (TADECO), Inc.

The cultural hall features costumes of indigenous peoples (IPs) whose ancestors were believed to be among first peoples of Panabo, such as Ata, Cagan and the Angsts, Café said.

Other halls which are still on preparation stage are for political and contemporary collections.

Visitors can have a glimpse of the political history of Panabo through pictures of the city's early political leaders once the political hall of the museum will be made available.

Café revealed that the Panabo Museum will soon house relics of the Ising War and other collections that would bring back memories of how Dabawenyo guerillas fought against Japanese invasion during World War II. The show of gallantry among local guerillas with American soldiers took place in Barangay Ising in Carmen, Davao del Norte.

Managed by the Heritage Committee of Panabo City composed of government and private sector representatives, Panabo Museum is open from Tuesdays to Saturdays, accommodating 20 to 30 persons at a time.

Café said the museum management can readily accept 50 to 80 visitors, but for proper guiding purposes, only 20 to 30 persons are allowed to enter at a time.

"It's because every display has a story to tell. We have to explain to each visitor what it is all about," she said. (PIA XI) [top]
