Bacolod Negros Ecological Forest Exhibit

HornbillA few blocks from the Bacolod’s town proper was the Negros Museum and the Ecological Forest.

The Negro’s Museum is definitely worth a visit to see and learn a bit of the island’s history as well as Philippine history. One of the highlights for me was the collection of ethnic toys and dolls from all over the world which were donated by a very wealthy woman who had been collecting them throughout her lifetime. On the second floor are artifacts and other objects showcasing the sugarcane industry. Sugarcane is Negros Island’s main source of income since the 1800s. The Ecological Forest next door was small, but offered a few surprising animals you wouldn’t expect to see. Our favorite animal was the Visayan Warthog. The furry warthog kept wanting to play with us, so every time we pretended to leave he would run to the side gate and made snort noises at us. When we came back close to him, he would walk away and look at us with sad eyes. It was so cute and just like a dog!
