Puzzled on what to do when in Tagaytay after you have visited the old popular places? Visit the Puzzle Mansion!
Here are 5 reasons why you should visit the place:
Reason #1: Visit the only Puzzle Museum in the World
Yes, the Philippines has the first and only dedicated museum for puzzles!
You might say “What’s the big deal? Puzzles, what’s interesting about them?” That was my preconception as well before I visited the place. But after entering the Puzzle Museum and got the tour, I was AMAZED! I never thought Puzzles could be this interesting.
Here are some of the different puzzles you can see at the Museum.
|Great Buildings of the World Puzzles|
|Taj Mahal Puzzle|
|4D Puzzles – Puzzle over Puzzle|
|Las Hilanderas Puzzle, the hardest jigsaw puzzle in the world. It took Ms. Gina a year to finish it!|
Reason #2: Meet the Filipina who is Guinness World Record holder of the Largest Collection of Jigsaw Puzzles
Meet the amazing Georgina Gil-Lacuna, the Guinness World Record holder of the largest collection of Jigsaw Puzzles and be given a guided tour around the museum.
Here are the video clips of the tour she did when we visited,.
Reason #3: Taste and Take Home Their Coconut Cream Pie
Forget your typical buko pie, this is Coconut CREAM Pie! Creamy, tasty and delicious. Not too sweet, just right.
After tasting it, you will definitely take some home for “pasalubong”. A slice costs Php 50 and a box costs Php 350.
Reason #4: Buy a Puzzle and Get it Signed by Ms. Gina
An ideal souvenir to take home after visiting the museum is of course a puzzle. In the souvenir shop, you can get a variety of puzzles from the simple few pieces to thousand pieces puzzles. You can also get assembled puzzles, some assembled by Ms. Gina herself.
After buying a puzzle, if Ms. Gina is around, she will be more than happy to sign it for you!

Reason #5: Stay the Night for Bed and Breakfast
As the name of the place says Puzzle Mansion Bed and Breakfast, staying there for the night is another thing you can do when you visit.
We stayed in the Deluxe rooms and here how room looks like:
|LCD screen with Cignal Digital cable TV|
|Spacious, clean and comfortable bed|
|Nice interiors and furnishing|
|Clean and spacious toilet and shower with hot and cold water|
|The Deluxe Rooms|
|A big swimming pool|
The room was so clean, smelling fresh and quite new and well maintained. It’s more of a resort accommodation in standard in my opinion. Even the quality of the towels and the bathroom kit they have given compares to quality provided by international hotels!
