If you are a history buff, make sure to visit the old house of the first Ilocano President, Elpidio Quirino. The old house where the first president was born and raised was turned into a museum. The museum holds a collection of his memorabilia from all the hats that he wear to even the first vehicle he had used and purchased. It also show case his office tables and his telephones. There are so many things to learn when visiting the museum. It is very informative how this president came to be the first Ilocano president!

Address: Vigan, Ilocos Sur
Directions: The museum is located at Vigan's old district.
