Negros Museum | What to Visit in Bacolod

Negros Museum

This was part of my Negros Solo-Backpacking | Day 3

After an hour travel from Ilo-Ilo Port going to Bacolod Port, the sun was still hot. So instead of walking from the port going to SM Bacolod, I rode in a pedicab. I entered the mall to take my lunch but there were a lot of people, so I walked on the street going back to the public plaza and took my lunch at the fast-food resto nearby. Stayed inside the resto for more than an hour and tried to wait if the sun will hide on the clouds, but it didn’t happen. No choice but to proceed to Negros Museum.

Negros Museum is almost in front of the Negros Provincial Capitol in Bacolod City. It serves as the provincial museum of Negros Occidental which was opened on March 16, 1996 at the Provincial Capitol Building. May 2003, it was transferred to its current location which is the former Agricultural Building. The Agricultural Extension Building was built in 1941 and was renovated in 1991.

At the highway, beside BDO take a van going to Bacolod Terminal, then take a jeep going to the Provincial Capitol. Negros Museum is almost in front of the capitol.
