Great place to learn the history of Negros and its Sugar Barons. Our tour guide was very friendly and we enjoyed the museum. I would suggest that they expand the pre-colonial and post colonial periods.

The place to go to know about Negros' history especially the sugar industry. Paintings and a souvenir shop at the ground floor. Dioramas, war memorabilias, old appliances, furniture, and a train make up the exhibit on the second floor. Interesting to see how life was in Negros during Spanish times and after. The building used to be the agricultural building... More

My daughter and her friends love this place when they were young and still loves it. Loved to show her about Negros' past. Place could be better but better than nothing. The cafe has great food.

This cafe offers excellent food choices. They use organic ingredients and offer a variety of healthy juices. Their hibiscus juice and turmeric juice are fresh, delicious and refreshing. They also offer very good coffee. The ambiance is relaxing and intimate.

The museum was actually one of the highlights of the trip for my 6-year old son, as the guide used the paintings on the first floor to tell the story of the island. The guides are sweet girls who have to serve as tour guides are part of their university studies. The entire visit was brief but nice. We purchased... More

Enough for those who want to get to know Negros better but the curators have to improve their English and should be more well-versed with the subject matter they are introducing.

It's a fairly large museum which showcases different works of art raging from historical ones to the ones that local artists have made. The guides are very fun and accommodating and they tell you different stories about Negros Occidental as they take you around the place. It's a must go to for history buffs like me.

We were lucky because when we visited the place there were only 6 people inside and that already include us. The place will take you to Bacolod's past. It is also housed in an old building that also has its own story. It housed a collection of tools, memorabilias and so many other things which will make any visitor understand... More
