What is the UNC Museum?
The UNC Museum is the 1st Museum in Bicol (October 1, 1952) with the biggest and most varied collection consisting of historical – cultural pictures and documents/realias and models on UNC/Bicol and our country on the 4 periods of our history: the Ancient, the Spanish, the American, and the Republic. A mini – global collection ends the presentation. The temporary exhibit uses the central gallery.

The University of Nueva Caceres is the second, private educational institution in the Philippines to have a Museum. When the late President Emeritus Jaime Hernandez founded the Nueva Caceres Colleges, one of his dreams for the future University was the establishment of a school Museum. He wanted to build sanctuary where historical relic, especially those of Bicol might be preserved for posterity, thus on October 01, 1952 the Museum was founded with the late Ignacio Meliton as the first Curator.
