TUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan, Feb. 2 (PNA) — Artifact lovers, students, teachers and other visitors have been taking glimpses at more than 100 artifact collections at the Panaddaman Museum, an artifact center which was reopened here to the public this week.

The museum showcases archeological, ethnographical, religious and visual arts artifacts presented in thematic arrangement.

"The antique items relive our past and we are not here if not for our past," student Joshua Follante, a visitor, said.

Professor Kristinne Lara-De Leon, museum curator, believed that the reopened museum will further enrich the Cagayano culture such as the Ibanags’ tradition.

Archimedes Articulo, CSU-Carig executive officer, said the artifacts museum would help preserve and promote Ibanag’s past life and culture.“We hope to bring back the culture of the Ibanags with this reopened museum,” he said.

Ibanags have been known to be dark-skinned people from Cagayan and Isabela provinces. (PNA)
