The Xavier University Museum or Museo de Oro located inside the school’s main campus in now undergoing renovation.
This is long overdue even as the building itself needs further improvement. As shown, work is concentrated on the right side portion next to the museum’s main entrance. All museum visits are still allowed as the museum’s collection are housed in the upper floors.
The museum contains collections of ethnological and archaeological materials and other artifacts illustrating the cultural anthropology and folk traditions of Northern Mindanao. The museum is also conducting further research and studies primarily on local history and folkloristic and comparative religion in Mindanao as well as in the entire country.
Hopefully, when the renovations are done, more collections will be displayed.
