I’ve decided to make this direction tips to get to Museo Sugbo separate for easier reference of everyone who wants to check out the Provincial Museum of Cebu.
How to get to Museo Sugbo?
The Cebu Provincial Museum is located in M.J. Cuenco Avenue. If you are coming from Mabolo or Mandaue take a jeepney with signage “Marteres” AND “Cathedral”. This museum is a few walks before reaching the corner of T. Padilla and M.J. Cuenco.
From Maguikay, Mandaue Coliseum, or Mabolo area, take a 21D jeepney. It passes by the front of Museo Sugbo. Fare from Maguikay is P10 per person, from Mabolo P8.
If you are in SM area, ride 01K and tell driver that you will get off in the corner of T.Padilla and M.J. Cuenco. Note though that you will have to walk 2 blocks to reach Museo Sugbo.
Direction to Cebu Museum from Mabolo area
If you are coming from Colon, take 01K, it also passes by the Museum on the jeepneys’ way to SM and Cebu North Bus terminal. So therefore if you are on a DIY Cebu City Tour and you are already in the Cebu Heritage Monument area in Colon or Parian District and you want to check out the galleries of the Museo Sugbo, you can ride 01k. 01k passes by the Colon Obelisk.
Way to Museo Sugbo from Colon area using Jeepney
When the 01k jeeps reach the end of Colon Street ( you’ll know because you will see the Obelisk), it will right turn all the way to Cebu Cathedral and then will left turn on the side of Patria Building until it reaches M.J. Cuenco Ave. When your ride reaches the corner, it will take another left turn, you will then be already cruising through M.J. Cuenco Avenue. A few minutes after, you’ll be by the side of the Cebu Provincial Museum.
