Marikina really seems to have a lot of interesting museums so you can make a whole day out of visiting those in the area. The Book Museum Cum Ethnology Center contains a collection of limited edition books and published materials from around the world as well as artifacts from regions of the Philippines. The museum displays the personal collection of Atty. Dominador Buhain, an avid traveler who amassed books, magazines, and diaries from his travels to 236 countries. One of the most notable books here is the smallest book in the world – which measures the size of a thumbnail (3.3×3.3 mm). Visitors can grab a special magnifying glass to read the tiny book’s contents.

The Book Museum cum Ethnology Center. 127 Dao Street, Marikina Heights, Marikina City. Open from Tuesday – Sunday 9:00 AM – 12:00 NN and 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM. Entrance Fee: P300 inclusive of P100 consumable at James Dean Café.
