Naturally, the city is proud of its cultural legacy, which includes Ormocanons. The 1947 Old City Hall was replaced by the Ormoc City Museum, or People's Museum, to establish a location where art, culture, and history are cherished. Richard I. Gomez, the city’s former mayor who is now a representative for Leyte's 4th District, who spearheaded this project, explained that the building of the museum serves as a reminder for all Ormocanons that we are a cultural group and that the responsibility for preserving our past is in our hands. Visitors have the privilege of viewing exceptional paintings created by local and national artists inside, as well as pictures of the city after the Super Typhoon Yolanda and information on government relief and programs for the local community. The Piña Festival dolls, lead dancer and queen costumes, additional World War II images, artifacts, and the province's miniature are also on display in the museum. While relaxing by the city's fountain and snapping pictures of Dr. Jose Rizal at night, one can see the museum's facade light up in brilliant hues.
