Toured the Negros Museum that houses interesting stuff about the island's history and culture. This was my second visit to the museum. While the first was like 12 years ago when the museum was still housed in the provincial capitol building. Now its treasures of historical artifacts and contemporary artworks are residing in its own building which is designed by national artist Leandro Locsin from an original edifice built in the 1920s. From the ground floor to the second floor, the tour guide would bring visitors around in chronological progression - ie. from the indigenous inhabitants of the island to the coming of the colonizers, to the development of a sugar industry up the early 1900s lifestyle of the rich and famous Negrense.
