Puzzle Mansion in Tagaytay City: Home of the World’s Largest Collection of Jig-saw Puzzles

After going to Sky Ranch, we initially wanted to have a Mother’s Day (May 12) lunch but the restaurant that we wanted was still full so we just decided to go to Puzzle Mansion. You’ll never miss Puzzle Mansion because of the numerous big arrow signage along the way telling you where it is located and how many more kilometers.

Puzzle Mansion, is now the home of the “world’s largest collection of jig-saw puzzles” by Gina Gil- Lacuna and just last Nov. 29, 2012, she was awarded by the Guinness Book of World Records. Her more than 250 framed puzzles that she collected for the last 25 years are displayed at the Puzzle Mansion located in Tagaytay city.

the very stiff road leading to the Puzzle Mansion

Our van could not come down there but fortunately they have a jeepney service for their guests but you need to pay P10/each (sana libre na lang!! hehe). We’re 11 all in all and while we’re travelling down, we jokingly scream as if we’re in a roller coaster ride. Our driver even drove it fast so we can enjoy..lol

Entrance fee: Php100

We’re fortunate that time because Ms. Gina was around that time to talk to us and other guests telling about her collections. She told us that she is assembling another puzzle with 32,000 pieces that she will enter in Guinness once again to break her own record! Amazing and ang tyaga nya!

We didn’t do it in one day but many days as puzzles can be a nice cure for a busy hand while chit chatting. I like the garden in your pictures too. I bet he got lots of puzzle collection in many tiny pieces. That’s so cool!
