I went here last March. Paid P100 for entrance fee. I am not a fan of museum actually but I was amazed with the display. I gained more knowledge about my mother's hometown. The antique equiptment used for making muscovado, the iron dinosaur (train), paintings and so on. The museum is well maintained and clean! Kudos!

If you are not from Bacolod or Negros, you will enjoy a special section that offers articles and implements of farming and history. There are also paintings from local artists. The rest, relates specifically to Negros and the people who served as government officials and displays from old family heirlooms.

Don't miss this museum when visiting Bacolod. It will give you a glimpse of their history and how they battle for freedom. There are some interesting memorabilia to showcase the colorful past of Bacolod. You can also see some beautiful artworks and can even buy some in their shop.

The guide is very helpful and very good. We like to Toy Museum that was donated by a very rich family.

It was confusing... since no one will assist you or even point you to where you stary viewing so you will probably miss most of the displays. There were some interesting artworks and I specially love the display of photos from the Camera club. They even display their trophy from International competitions and the corresponding winning shot.

We payed 100 pesos omg. Why are the ligts friggin off?? I wouldnt mind if the room was properly lit. But it wasnt. Some... More

Underwhelming. If you want an enriching take on the history of the island, do yourselves a favor and just Google it. The entrance fee of P100 is too much. I appreciate the effort of the guides and I know the fee will help the upkeep of the place but the experience was just sad. You can be in and out... More

Get a feel of the Negrense lifestyle during the olden times... This place also has a toy museum inside. Perfect for kids and the kids at heart. While you're there try the organic food at the Museum Cafe! Highly recommended when you're in Bacolod. :)

The museum has 9 historical murals on the first floor, and some artifacts on the second floor, with a big display of toys from around the world on the second floor. The entrance fee already comes with a tour guide, who was quite knowledgeable on the history of the city. It's a nice place to spend less than an hour... More
