Last on our list of Bacolod museums is Balay ni Tana Dicang, the oldest surviving house in the province of Negros Occidental and genuinely well-preserved. This is the main ancestral house of the Lizares family, one of the most influential sugar barons in the area. Balay ni Tana Dicang means “House of Kapitana Dicang,” the name by which Mrs. Lizares was known. This historical museum is just a 20-minute drive from Bacolod City. The museum appears to be closed all the time, so you need to knock as hard as you can to get the attention of the housekeepers and let them know of your interest in entering the heritage structure.
The entrance fee is PhP100 per head.
Stay safe as you travel! Follow social distancing protocols and observe health precautions. Have a great trip!
