Good start in knowing Negros

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

Pong, our tour guide, walked us through some brief history of Negros - which made us appreciate this visit more. Currently, some sections are closed, so the museum offered a 50% discount rate for the entrance fees. The toy collection is quite interesting.

Negros Occidental pales in comparison with Manila, Cebu or Iloilo when it comes to anthropological, historical and ancestral showcase but the colonial past of the great sugar industry of the province is the main feature of this museum. From crude stone driven sugarcane presses, the first muscovado/raw sugar mills (horno economico) to the onset of the modern mechanized sugar centrals,... More

Museum does explain a lot about negros,I think it is more made for local school children, still it was interesting as long as you take one of the guides to show you around and tell you some good stories. Also have a look at the toys, really impressive knowing it is not even half of the toys the owned

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
