The Pamintuan Mansion is considered one of the biggest, most elegant, and most elaborately designed houses in the whole of Angeles City. Nowadays, the house is no longer occupied by a resident, for it now serves as a museum. Along with turning into a museum, it was also named the "Museo ng Kasaysayang Panlipunan ng Pilipinas" or the Museum of Philippine Social History. You can go through nine galleries that exhibit the different aspects of the "Filipino Life." 

The Mansion had many reincarnations, for it served many purposes for different groups and individuals. It was once the headquarters of General Antonio Luna in 1899, the Seat of the Philippine republic in May 1899, and the site of the first-anniversary celebration of the declaration of Philippine independence on 12 June 1899. It was also the headquarters of General MacArthur in November 1899. 

The history of the mansion is exhibited in the first gallery. In the second, various Philippine textiles, accessories, and weaving tools can be found. Clothing styles of local fashion and culture can be seen in the third gallery. Meanwhile, the fourth one houses scale models of traditional Filipino homes from across the country. 

Furniture of the 19th century, "bahay na bato" can be seen in the fifth gallery. As for the sixth gallery, you'll be able to listen to Filipino musical compositions. And lastly, the seventh to ninth galleries feature traditional Filipino games, depictions of local mythological creatures, and a traditional Filipino kitchen.
