MUSEO DE BALER and The KING OF THE ROAD


Prominent.Powerful. Strong. Ruler. Genius. King.

BALER SERIES

Big, simple, and powerful--mighty strong--are the three words that define this tricycle.

I am not talking about myself but these powerful public transportation in the province of Baler. Our very own Philippine Tricycle. If you are in the look out for a cheap ride then I strongly encourage you to experience an inexpensive way to explore Baler. Riding a tricycle which can certainly pass through streets compared to other bigger transports.

MUSEO DE BALER (Baler, Aurora) – Located in Quezon Park

Our so-called tricycle diaries began at 11 in the morning when Kuya June offered to drive us around the province. We agreed with the Php800 per tricycle day tour with the inclusion of Museo De Baler, Aurora Quezon house, Baler Church, Quezon memorial park, Baler plaza and the Ditumabo Falls. While most of us really  talked a lot , our tourist guides were so silent but we were extremely happy with their characters which is really friendly.

BALER SERIES

Have you noticed the beautiful art of the wall surface?

It was almost lunch time when we arrived at the Pacific Wave which is the resort/hotel/house we stayed for the whole weekend .And we did not waste our time so we contacted Kuya June and company,  highly skilled tricycle drivers who helped us explore the province. I really appreciate him for driving us around .

The first stop was the Museo De Baler which showcases a century old artifacts, jars, costumes and anything about the rich history of Baler Province.

Take a glimpse of hidden treasure of Baler from an old jars and other chinese porcelain items which was discovered in an old shipwreck in Manila Bay all the way to the coast of Luzon and nearby islands.

Take a very short history review of some of the  important memories of the town through the bronze mural sculpture by National Aritst Abdulmari Imao at the museum’s façade. When you get outside, there is a steel statue of President Quezon, sitting confidently in an elegant posture, welcoming the visitors of the museum.

    Although I’m not much of a Museum fan, I would probably still drop by should I visit Baler. It wouldn’t hurt to know a little bit more about the province naman. =)

    I think the museum in Baler is way better than the ones here in Metro Manila. Definitely a must visit of visitors of Baler.
