The Basilica del Santo Nino museum

The other treasure of the Basilica del Santo Nino is its museum.

Its collections are mainly the different Santo Nino images (statues) that the Basilica has received from devotees through the ages (they are made of different materials: ivory, hardwood, etc). Along with them are the different vestments of the Santo Nino (they are changed every year), the oldest of which dates as far back as the 16th century. There are also jewelries, toys, liturgical materials and centuries-old books.

The museum is located at the basement of the Pilgrim Center. It is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 8 to 11:45 in the morning and 1:30 to 5:45 in the afternoon. Entrance fee is Php 10.
