I had the opportunity to spend the afternoon at the Museum in Bacolod, and I found it extremely interesting. There was information there, about the local ways of making sugar from Sugar Cane, as well as some of the information about China, and the United States. I was particularly interested in the huge display of turn of the century toys... More

Even if there are not too many items on display, what can be seen offers an interesting and clear perspective of the history of this part of this great Country, that unfortunately not too many foreigners, like me, have a chance to visit it.

The museum has not a lot to offer. Go there if you want to see the building from inside. The museum explains the history of the owners who lived in the building.

Every time we go to a new place, we always make sure to visit the local museum. This place is a must but keep in mind that some facts are not available for you when you go there. We got lucky that when we visited this place, a museum attendant was there and gladly walked us through the history behind... More

For a P50 entrance fee, I was at least expecting a guided tour but there was none. There was really nothing remarkable in this museum except for the Toy Museum which is a private collection. Not really worth the trip.

Fee: P50 (adults) P25 (child) The museum was empty when we visited (around 10am). The cashier who gave us the museum tickets is also the tour guide. She's eloquent in speaking in English. The tour is short but quite informative. As musuems go, it is hot inside, so the airconditioned room (where the toy collection around the world was housed)... More

Just a normal experience of a tourist guided museum. There should be some more artifacts and more items to be exhibited. The museum curators should think of something creative to make this attractions more meaningful and more interesting.

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
