“Negros Museum, Bacolod a little dissapointing !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2012

Have just visited the Negros Muesum, in Bacolod and found the experience a little dissapointing, however there were one or two highlights.

The Toy Museum room was a delight seeing all the toys from all over the world, and remembering the items that I used to have ( and no longer do.... where did they go to ? )

The other treasure was the diorama of the duoing of the Spanish forces during the Philipine war of independance, where they used sugar cane and mats to look like cannons and coconuts as cannon Balls. One of the ideas of Senor Arenata of Bagos City.

The Noritake tea service in the same room was a delight and so too were the various letters and comments for times long gone by, where the water in the rivers of Bago City and Bacolod were described as Crystal clear.

I have taken some photos and these will help with information about where, when and what is open at the museum.

Try the Organic Cafe across the road, ( more on that later on ) for a really delicious meal and cheap too !

“a glimpse of bacolod”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

the Negros Museum is located near the lagoon and capitol building. The entrance fee was P50. Lucky for us because there was a tour guide. He told us about the landed hacienderos, how the sugar is being processed, the Amorsolo paintings, and he showed us the toy collections of one of the hacienderos in Bacolod. If you wanted to know something about the city/place, i guess, visiting the museum is a good option.
The negative thing that we noted was the leak on the ceiling on the 2nd floor. i hope the local govt will provide some funds for the building renovation.
oh by the way, i forgot to mention about the cafe that is located beside the museum. you can have a freshly-squeezed orange juice there after your tour in the museum.

“Half of it was shut - no discount though!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2012

We arrived when the staff told us they were having a two-hour lunch! They took our money anyway and let us get on with it but failed to tell us that the main part of the museum was shut with a simple sign that read 'this part is closed, sorry for the inconvenience' which was really helpful. There was little to see otherwise although some moderately interesting history cards to read. Don't rush.
