You can skip this if you are pressed for time during your stay. Very basic museum but at least the city has one.

The museum is in need of proper maintenance and its tour guides shall be trained well to use the right approach. It was a hot day and the building is in poor ventilation.

This museum occupies what used to be an agricultural extension government building so its lay-out does not seem to fit its displays of artifacts and artworks. The architectural design of the building, though, is suitable for a museum or another art and culture-related venue to provide a glimpse of life on Negros Island even before the Western colonizers came.

see some informative things and displays.People most likely travel and find museums are great and must see places in a good city like Bacolod .Check it out and you will find yourself going back to the same museum after a log period of time . Hoping that you could find a treasure of information and knowledge that you can share.... More

There are a few hidden treasures in visiting this Bacolod staple and one of which is the "no photo-taking allowed" toy collection section that me and my fianceé wer blown away, i am not surprised that this museum section is not that popular given its location at the back part (away from the more popular halls) of the museum. Toys... More

We were supposed to go Dizon Museum but it was closed, we ended up at the nearest one which is the Negros Museum. The artworks were amazing we cant even believe most of they were done by pens. most of the displays at the first floor were modern art and paintings while the 2nd floor showcases the old Negrense items...

Nice display of history and culture. Farming is a huge part of the island and I think it was well represented. Sure it's not the British Museum, but hey... This museum is good enough for a small island.
