    Balay Negrense, Wow! Is it haunted!?

    Do you want an old, historical yet creepy house? I know the place for you, The Balay Negrense!

    It’s a old yet historical ancestral house intact with furniture! A guide will accompany you around the house. Feel free to ask her any open minded questions such as “Are there ghost here?” And she or he will answer it with delight.

    So are you game to venture one of Bacolod’s old ancestral houses? Balay Negrense awaits your visit!

    The Ruins of Talisay

    by miguel_arcangel Updated Aug 19, 2013

    One of the must visit place in Bacolod is the remnants of the mansion of Don Mariano L. Lacson in Talisay.

    Time come and go. Though the mansion is irreparable, it was acclaimed as one of the most fascinating ruins of the world.

    A quirky little place.

    by planxty Written Feb 8, 2012

    Whilst I love Bacolod, there are not a huge amount of what you might describe as tourist attractions. One such is the Negros Occidental Museum whch turned out to be an unusual little place. Having paid my 50 peso admission, I found myself in what appeared to have been a large old colonial house.

    A large portion of the ground floor appears to be taken up by art exhibitions, with many items for sale. This gives the place slightly more of a feel of an art gallery than a Museum, although there are some exhibits. Climbing the very grand staircase to the second level reveals the Museum proper.

    It is not a Museum as I would understand it, and there is nothing of great antuquity. The exhibits seem to belong to the last couple of centuries but they are very interesting. There are various tableaux depicting various facets of life in the past, the store, the pharmacy (historically important as it was a centre for collecting revolutionary funds) and my favourite, the colonial area drawing room.

    My favourite exhibit was the small team locomotive used in the sugarcane plantations although the traditinal boat laden with all sorts of incongruous items like old Chesterfield cigarettes, Pepsi bottles and 78 rpm dance records. Younger readers should ask someone older what 78's were!

    Unfortunately, the Museum does not appear to be accessible to the mobility impaired. It is open Monday to Saturday from 0900 to 1800. It should take you no more than an hour for a good look round but it is worth the trip, I learned quite a bit about the region there.

    This is the church near the Plaza…what makes this unique is that it has so many columns at the nave portion and has a crypt open to public……airconditioned………….(now beat that)
