Interesting discovery of the island and its people, cultural heritage and history. I learned something more of my ancestral beginnings...very educational, too.

I've been to a number of University Museums throughout the Philippines and this among the best - good size, updated facility, and well-lit. The Museum was established in 1970 by Dr. Hubert I. Reynolds, an American missionary member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)...More

it's not so often that we can visit a museum about our own local history. Very interisting for students or any other.

Aside from their cool aircondition against the hot summer, i really didn't find their artifacts interesting. Maybe because the museum lacks curator. The description printed in the artifact seemed general and doesn't convey deeper information

The Anthropology museum of Silliman University is a must to visit if you are a tourist in Dumaguete City. The Hibbard building where the museum was located was built in 1930's in fact the stairs and walls are still in its original form. The museum...More

This is a good museum to visit to get first-hand viewing of tools used on different historical ages of the Philippines. An infographic on the Philippine history is also inside the museum. The museum is open from 0830h - 1700h.

The museum is quite small but it is filled with interesting pieces. There's so much to learn from what's displayed there. What I found to be most interesting are the ones from Siquijor and the burial jars.

A very good collection of artifacts and anthropology of the Negros Island and nearby sites of the region. Interesting also to see a section showcasing Siquijor's mystic and traditional medical practices. A nice and educational place to rest and cool down after a stroll around...More

Housed in Silliman University's Hibbard Hall. It exhibits artifacts collected across Negros island and other sites near the region — unearthen jars, old and rusty weapons, precious stones, etc. The iconic Silliman Hall, the oldest American structure in the country, housed the anthropology museum long...More
