The Museum

The E. Aguilar Cruz Museum

Abé’s Farm is home to the E. Aguilar Cruz Museum. It houses the artworks and collections of Emilio "Abe" Aguilar Cruz, a true Renaissance Man of his time: an artist skilled in many mediums, an institution of Philippine journalism, a historian, Philippine Representative to the UNESCO, and an inspiration and mentor to young visual artists and writers. At the museum, we find a historical marker that honors Abe for his contributions to Philippine arts and history.

The museum also features a small area detailing the achievements of Larry J.Cruz, his years as a newspaper and broadcast journalist, Press Undersecretary and BNFI head, publisher of Metro Magazine, and his contributions to the local hospitality industry.

The E. Aguilar Cruz Museum is open from 10am to 4pm daily. Guided tours are by appointment. Please call Abe’s Farm at (0917) 808-5187.
