Donated to the Pangasinan Government by the descendants of Antonio Bengson and Soterana Yuson, this ancestral house is Lingayen’s oldest standing residential house that was easily converted into a heritage museum. The house depicts the Spanish architecture of a typical 18th century Filipino home. It showcases classic furniture pieces, kitchen utensils, and other home paraphernalia used during the Spanish regime. The museum also displays various Filipiniana dresses, family portraits of the Bengson-Yuson families, and grand art pieces by renowned artist Romeo MananQuil, the man behind the designs of P1,000 and P20 bills, and the endemic tamaraw in the old Philippine peso coin.
