Locally known as the “pink house” due to its exterior color. The museum boasts of a collection of rare and priceless pieces from Silay’s rich past. Built in 1908 by Don Bernardino and his wife Isabel Jalandoni y Ledesma, the house is a treasure chest of well-designed interiors and intricate artworks including its beautifully embossed steel (tin?) tray ceiling molded in Hamburg, Germany. The house is set back for a gallery to accommodate pedestrian traffic below, an urban innovation.
