Gabii sa Kabilin 2012 : Cebu’s Night of the Museums

This is one of my favorite events wherein I can witness the beautiful culture and heritage of Cebu and see it all in one night of Museum and heritage hopping from popular spots here in Cebu. Termed (personally) as the “Cebu Night of the Museum” , it is indeed more fun in the Philippines.

During the Gabii sa Kabilin, participating museums and heritage sites are open until midnight for public viewing. Each of these establishments prepares programs and activities that highlight their unique heritage agenda.
