Documenting the history and culture of Bulan town, Bulan Presidential Museum is home to a collection of artifacts donated by the town's residents. The museum is located in what used to be the municipal hall, which was built in 1801. The museum was conceptualized in 2007 and was opened to the public soon after. However, the building received extensive roof damage from Typhoon Noona in 2015. Some artifacts have been lost in the destruction of the building. At the time of writing in 2017, the management of the museum is looking to source funds to help repair the damage and further develop the museum.
Bulan's Japanese encampments comprise an intricate cave system the Japanese bunked and fought from during the World War II. Previously extended several kilometers, the caves were burrowed under a tiny hill and remain well-preserved. Surrounding the cave is a lake that originally provided a floating bar to enjoy refreshments in the area. A typhoon damaged the floating bar, but the caves are luckily intact.
A tourism project of Bulan's local government, this eco-park hosts the Mountain Festival, a lively celebration in honor of land as a renewable resource, held every 2nd Saturday of October. The park covers 14.8 hectares and used to be a garbage dumpsite. Donated by Thomas de Castro, the wasteland was converted into usable land and has been existing as a park for 13 years. The site is being developed to have attractions like butterfly farms, horseback riding, and tree planting programs, alongside concerts and other festivals. Eventually, the area will also allow renewable energy, and dormitories and facilities for public events.
