Casa Gerordo was the residence of the first bishop of Cebu, Juan Gerordo. The house was restored and converted into a house museum that showcases the elegant lifestyle at the turn of the century.


The ground floor of Casa Gerordo was a storage area then, it now houses the museum's office, a small store, it is also a venue for art exhibits. The house is made from corral stone blocks and is roofed with tile.


Like most traditional Filipino stone house, the house has a wooden upper storey, big sliding capiz windows, ventanillas or small windows, and is furnished with antique furnitures. Books, memorabilia, and costumes from the past can be seen in the second level of the house.


In the master's bedroom is a collection of sayas.A room in the residence was outfitted to become a chapel because a scion of the Gorordos, Juan (1862-1934), became first Filipino bishop of Cebu (1910-32). The bishop would use the chapel whenever he visited home.


The Museum is along Lopez Jaena Street. It is open from Monday to Saturday from 9:00 - 12:00; 2:00 - 5:00.
