Gabii sa Kabilin 2012

Once a year, museums and heritage sites in Cebu open their doors from 6PM til midnight for Gabii sa Kabilin (Night of Heritage).

I look forward to Gabii sa Kabilin every year, as it gets bigger and better. I have joined the past three Gabii sa Kabilin and I encourage you to take part this year. In 2009, the first time I heard of GSK (it was already on its 3rd year! Where was I hiding before that?!), there were only 6 participating museums, then grew to 9, then 18, and now 20!

The 6th Gabii sa Kabilin will be participated in by the regulars...

  • Basilica Minore del Sto NiƱo
  • Cathedral Museum of Cebu
  • Casa Gorordo Museum
  • Cebu City Museum
  • Cebu Normal University
  • Fort San Pedro
  • Mandaue City Plaza
  • Museo Parian sa Sugbo
  • Museo Sugbo
  • Plaza Independencia
  • Sacred Heart Parish Church/Alternative Contemporary Arts Studio (ACAS)
  • University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) Rizaliana Museum
  • Yap-Sandiego Ancestral House

...and the newbies:

  • Ayala Center Cebu Cinema and Terraces
  • Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) Museum*
  • The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
  • College Assurance Plan (CAP) Theater
  • Fo Guang Shan Chu Un Temple
  • Jose R Gullas Halad Museum
  • University of San Carlos Museum

*BPI Museum will be open 10AM to 4PM only. Buntag sa Kabilin ;-)

Arm yourself with a ticket (Php 150, sold at any of the participating sites and Ayala Center Cebu concierge) to be able to go from museum to site to museum and on and on. The ticket also allows you to take unlimited rides on GSK buses and tartanillas. See bus and tartanilla routes below.

You can get a copy of their ebrochure by signing up and downloading here.
