A Field Trip to the Negros Museum


The Negros Museum Field Trip

One fine day, Dindin and I went on a field trip to The Negros Museum in preparation for our homeschooling in Bacolod. It was a good time to test her readiness to museum tours.

Dindin’s first visit to The Negros Museum where she especially liked the Toys of the World collection at the JGM Gallery.

The Negros Museum Outing

One fine Saturday morning, Dindin and I went to The Negros Museum for an impromptu educational trip. She did not like a lot of the exhibits there, however, because there were life-sized statues and she was afraid. They were pretty dark, after all.

But the saving grace was that, she especially liked the JGM Gallery where there is an ongoing exhibit of toys from all over the world. We stayed there for more than 30 minutes, checking each and every toy. After all, she is a kid. And with a toy collection like that, she was bound to go bonkers.

Buying a Souvenir

After our short museum tour, we bought a souvenir — a mask key chain with the word “Bacolod” written on it. It is representative of Bacolod City’s world-renowned MassKara Festival. The keepsake will be a wonderful addition to Dindin’s key chain collection. 😀

We then walked a block and had a stroll in the Bacolod Capitol Lagoon where Dindin smelled the flowers and watched the fish swim. We are thankful for the fine day we had. It was a great outing and a great bonding moment for us.  😀
