Many people come here for the sumptuous lunch by the waterfalls but little they know, inside the walls of the Escudero Museum, hides a trove of cultural relics collected through the years by the Escudero family.

Be sure to hold on to your jaw from dropping when you peek inside the lavish collection of historical artifacts which includes the original altar of Quiapo Church and other significant items that stacks wall to wall and from floor to ceiling of the museum.

The Escudero Mansion is also a must see where paintings from National Artists like Felix Resureccion Hidalgo and Fernando Amorsolo are also displayed. Special cultural shows featuring the Villa Escudero Folkloric Group dancers is also one of the highlights here.
