Museo ning Angeles is a priceless asset., vintage circa 1920, the building is a museum piece by itself , located at the prime Sto. Rosario Historic District across the Holy Rosary Cathedral. This edifice was constructed in 1922 and served as the “ MUNICIPIO” or Town Hall. The original Town Hall was constructed in 1840, then known as “LA CASA TRIBUNAL” and was a typical “BAHAY NA BATO” with a thatched roof. Its location was about 20 yards to the south of the present structure since the present site was the town “PALENQUE” or Public Market place. In 1855 the market place was razed down by a great fire that endangered the wooden church and the old residences along Sto. Rosario Street, including the “LA CASA TRIBUNAL”.
The museum is rightly located at the center stretch of the historical street of Sto. Rosario. While facing the centuries old twin towered Holy Rosary Church, it is flanked alternately by other equally old and quaint ancestral houses and buildings.
