Travel Finds
Finds Museum is one man's extensive collection ranging from Chinese porcelain vases, illustrations, matches, religious sculpture, die-cast metal cars, memorabilia, coins, stamps, etc. They were acquired in the last 25 years as the collector scoured the world on his global travels. A short tricycle ride takes you there from the town center, P10.

Ending Thoughts
It would have been better if there was a story for some of the major finds - kind of like a blog, but instead of pictures, you see the real thing. Additionally, seeing the displays behind a steel matrix or veiled in plastic didn't really visually showcase the items. For what was being exhibited though, P100 admission was a little steep. Don't expect Smithsonian quality on this musuem. Take it as a glimpse into one man's global journey pursuing his passion, collecting art, memorabilia and things that excited him.

Kalibo is still inexpensive and the dollar goes a long way specially with food. Lodging though, compared to Cambodia or Thailand is expensive.
