The idea of the establishment of the “Museo de Bacarra” was conceived years ago by the Honorable Mayor Nicomedes C. dela Cruz, Jr., the municipal tourism development council and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Laoag and its actualization comes now. The leadership of Mayor Nico and Mayora Lilibeth, the chairman of the tourism council brought it to fruition. People who have passion in art, history and culture contribute their talent, time and treasure.
The Museo de Bacarra, a tourism museum is being housed at the partially restored church convent of St. Andrew, the Apostle Parish, adjacent to the Bacarra Church and Bell tower. The museum displays and portraits the rich agricultural heritage of the municipality. The council collects artifacts that are relevant to the rich culture, history and religion of Bacarra.

The Museo is one of the best and most amazing things that has ever happened in Bacarra in recent memory. Thanks to the leadership and inspiration of Mayor Nico and First Lady Lilibeth and the hardwork, dedication, and determination of the MTDC to make a once impossible dream come alive! Agbiag ti Bacarra!
To complement the Museo as a tourist attraction in Bacarra, the next best thing that can be undertaken by the MTDC
is to develop the nearby bakir and the ruins behind the convento into different gardens just like what Bambi Harper had done in Intramuros . . . we can also have a Fern Garden, Orchidarium, Bonzai Garden, A Bamboo Grove, Perfume Garden, etc.
