This Spanish-Baroque structure was built in 1937 as a gift for the wife of Don Fortunato Cabrera Concepcion. He was as former mayor of the city of Pasig from 1918 to 1921. It was then used as a Japanese headquarter and detention house during the war.

The Concepcion Mansion was acquired by the local government of Pasig in the early 1980s to house the city’s library and museum. However, in 2001, the Pasig Library was relocated, and so the museum became its sole occupant.

As its main attraction, the collection consists of varying objects, memorabilia and artifacts, bearing historic and contemporary significance.It also has a small collection of the works of Filipino Artists like National Artist for Painting, Fernando Amorsolo and National Artist for Sculpture, Guillermo Tolentino.
