Museo De La Salle

Located within the campus of the De La Salle University Dasmariñas, Museo De La Salle is a unique, cultural, cross-disciplinary institution serving as a permanent museum of the De La Salle University System. It is a resource center for both indoor and outdoor collections dedicating itself to the gathering of collectible objects of intrinsic value significant to the preservation of certain aspects of the Philippine ilustrado lifestyle.

Museo De La Salle is a lifestyle museum dedicated to the preservation of certain aspects and material culture of the 19th century Philippine ilustrado lifestyle. The Museo has been realised 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, and that reaches out to the outside.

Its collection comprises of 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 collectors.
