These are just some of the thoughts quoted by the “incorruptible man” himself, Jesse Robredo — to be more immortalized now that a museum dedicated for him was opened in Naga City.
The “Museo ni Jesse Robredo” located at the Naga Civic Center, Naga City, Bicol opened on Friday; just in time for his fifth death anniversary.
Rene Escalante, Chairperson of National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) described it as a “governance and teaching museum” as it showcases the quality of governance Jesse displayed as Mayor of Naga for two decades.
It pays tribute to the legacy of good governance and exemplary life of the Mayor of “most improved city in Asia” back in the 90s.
The museum features four galleries filled with Jesse’s photos and personal items like clothes and shoes he wore when he was alive. Also displayed are awards, letters to his daughter, as well as informative and interactive displays.
According to a report by ABS-CBN, entrance to the museum is free, and the museum is open from Tuesdays to Sundays, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
NHCP funded the museum and will shoulder its operational expenses.
