Showcases the beautiful architecture of the Spanish Era with all the original furniture from beds, to harps, chandeliers, telephones, irons and tons of old pictures.

“SILAY City is dubbed as ‘(little) Paris’ of Occidental Negros for its rich culture and history and ancestral houses in the city which preserve great Filipino culture of the past,” said Benjamin Arceo, curator of the Bernardino Jalandoni museum in Silay.

The ancestral house, which was built in 1908, was owned by Don Bernardino Jalandoni and wife Ysabel Ledesma-Jalandoni. It is now a museum located along the busy street of Rizal near the city market.
