(Night of Heritage)

Cebu City | Mandaue City | Lapu-Lapu City | Talisay City


Gabii Sa Kabilin encourages the public to visit museums and understand their position as a venue for cultural understanding.

Gabii sa Kabilin” is Cebuano for Night of Heritage, and patterned after the long night of museums in Germany and other European countries. The event is designed to draw foreign and local tourists, but most especially Cebuanos, to visit the museums. It aims to reinforce the belief that local museums are venues for the understanding and appreciation of Cebuano history and culture. But beyond that it also discounts the stereotype of museums as mere repositories of “dead objects”; rather, as venues for live cultural activities.

Started in 2007 by the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc.(RAFI), The Gabii sa Kabilin is the only cultural event of its kind in Philippines and Asia. Participating museums opens its doors beyond regular hours up to midnight on the last Friday of the Philippine National Heritage Month of May and culminating the International Museum Day.
