Information

A lifestyle and decorative arts museum featuring certain aspects of the 19th century Philippine lifestyle. It has been realized to encourage its own use in cross-disciplinary learning and growth in an academic environment, and to provide a living space illustrating Philippine culture that is linked to its immediate community. The Museo De La Salle Collection comprises antique family heirlooms such as furniture, decorative objects, fine and applied arts displayed in faithfully recreated rooms, donated by, or on long-term loan from generous donors. The building itself takes design inspiration from the 19th century Bahay na Bato, a two-storey building with stone, brick and mortar structure at the ground level, and is usually made of wood at the second level. The emergence of the Bahay na Bato marked the remarkable lifestyle of the 19th century Christian Philippines. A Bahay na Bato was filled with fine furniture and objects to showcase the owner’s wealth, personal style, and status in society. These examples of material culture now serve to document a range of natural and socio-historical notions.
