A very good collection of artifacts and anthropology of the Negros Island and nearby sites of the region. Interesting also to see a section showcasing Siquijor's mystic and traditional medical practices. A nice and educational place to rest and cool down after a stroll around...More

Housed in Silliman University's Hibbard Hall. It exhibits artifacts collected across Negros island and other sites near the region — unearthen jars, old and rusty weapons, precious stones, etc. The iconic Silliman Hall, the oldest American structure in the country, housed the anthropology museum long...More

The museum is small but you can learn a lot from the exhibits. It's a good rest place after strolling the campus because it's cold here. Ü Worth visiting when you're in the area.

The museum was already transferred to Hibbard Avenue from Silliman Hall. Entrance fee is Php 50. The museum is dedicated to excavation finds.

The aircon setting was too cold! But probably needed for the artifacts. My toddler enjoyed our self-tour. Staff friendly.

If you are an anthropology geek, you will love this museum. FOr just 50 pesos entrance, you can see artifacts digged in the province. I really didn't enjoy much except for the airconditioned room because they do not have curator to explain the display.

Good little museum about pre-Spanish period of the Philippines and the local people of Negros. It was a nice way to learn something about Dumaguete and we appreciate the place more because of this visit.

It was really nice to get an insight into how the country has developed over the years. Clearly being occupied by other cultures and their strive for independence has left its mark. The photos, artefacts and text leave you in no doubt as to the...More
