THE El Museo De Zamboanga was launched Friday at the Jardin Maria Clara Lobregat in the village of Pasonanca, five kilometers north of Zamboanga City.

The unveiling of the museum coincided with the commemoration of the 92nd birth anniversary of the late mayor Dia di Ma’am Caling.

The exhibit documents and features the historical development of Zamboanga City through the years.


Architect Ildefonso Torres, El Museo de Zamboanga Curator, said the exhibit is set to be one of the main features of the museum.

Torres hopes to add and improve the said exhibit as the city continues to move forward.

The museum also unveiled another featured display -- a semi-permanent exhibit of five Zamboanga City mayors who held national offices in government.

The El Museo de Zamboanga was established by virtue of City Ordinance 378 and was officially unveiled last 2012 as part of the local government’s thrusts to preserve this city’s rich culture and history.

It will house valuable artifacts, items, collections and memorabilia that have historical, social, and cultural significance of Zamboanga City. (Bong Garcia)
