Like most museums in the Philippines, the Negros Museum isn't very grand. However, one cannot measure a museum's worth on what it looks like. If you're up for a lesson about the Negros Island's history and culture, then this is the best place to go to. Don't forget to ask the front desk if there's a museum guide that can... More

We were disappointed that the Museum was closed when we try to visit it. We went there Sunday morning, very excited and expecting to go inside as the tarp outside states that the Museum is open 9AM to 6PM (SUNDAY). But the guard said that they already changed the schedule from Tuesday –Sunday to Monday-Saturday. Quite disappointing yet we have... More

I was there when there was a nice exhibition from Wayne Forte. I was actually very lucky and met the talented artist there. But apart from that, not sure how it is when there is no exhibition - there is very little information about Negros, which is a pity.

We took a guided tour of the museum. our guide was a local student doing an internship. She was very good and we enjoyed the stories and history she told us as we walked through the different rooms. was a nice afternoon and we learned a lot about the history of Negros.

Entrance fee: 50PHP, 40PHP for seniors. We are "museum people". We saw some things of cultural and historical interest. But mostly, I was disappointed by the dusty disarray, essential objects that weren't properly displayed and the obviously old leaks on the ceiling. Surely, there's more to Negros and its people than what appears here. According to the tourist guide, the... More

The blogs we read led us to believe that this museum was a showcase of local culture and history. It was not that wonderful but is interesting and worth the visit if you have some time to kill. The main exhibits were some paintings of Negros cultural life and collections of some antique and old scientific equipment, household items and... More

I was bedazzled by the Montelibano toy collection from all over the world. She must have spent a fortune for all of those. Keep 'em coming....

Architecture was made by an American; was made into a Japanese garrison and today it is a museum. For Php50, a guide will take you around at no extra cost. Lots of things to see. I especially enjoyed the Museum Shop- they will show you the backroom collection. I wish I had money since they were selling Markarra paintings of... More
