Basilica Del Sto. Niño de Cebu Museum

The museum showcases the history of Christianity in Cebu through the Señor Santo Niño de Cebu. It was opened to the public in 1965, during the fourth centennial of the Christianization of the Philippines. It was established by Rev. Fr. Ambrosio J. Galindez, O.S.A. at the convent as its first location. The current location was inaugurated in 1995.

The museum houses antique religious and other relics. The Santo Niño’s old cloaks, jewelry, and toy donations are displayed here. There are also century-old furniture, priestly vestments, and other relics collected throughout the years.

Most of the vestments are from the 17th and 18th centuries, according to Fr. Pedro G. Galende, OSA. Also displayed here are chalices, patens, ciboriums, and wine vessels, some of which are used during solemn feasts.

The museum was established to store, preserve, and exhibit religious artifacts of the local Augustinian community, particularly the treasures of the Santo Niño.
