We gained a great introduction to and much respect for Filipino contemporary art, which was passionate and thought-provoking. The gallery was well designed. We allowed 2 hours for our visit and wished we had an extra hour or two, especially to enjoy the cafe overlooking the beautiful garden.

Firstly, the different galleries has interesting pieces for display but not interesting enough to make it special. There were not many displayed pieces, it is a few of everything. There was no one specific gallery that was outstanding. There were many pieces of wood carvings but then you can get plenty of such work any where in Philippines. The only... More

An awesome visit at the BenCab Museum!!! Every single paintings, artifacts and sculptures will definitely gives you an expressive interpretation. I spent time at the garden to enjoy the beautiful scenery and the excellent landscaping all throughout the BenCab compound. A must see visit!

I guess it's probably purely semantics to call this a museum for the number and variety of items exhibited … plus there's a section there where kids need not to be there …

With P100.00 entrance fee, the place is worth the visit. A building with 4 levels of artworks and art collections of BenCab, other maestros and artists. Another P100.00 should you wish to take the eco-tour, about 30 to 45-minute trail around their nature park. Something you could skip but something I would go for with my kids. Food in their... More

We finally had a chance to visit this fantastic place in Baguio. It's definitely worth the 25-minute trip from the City's central district. You can also locate it in Waze. If by taxi, I understand the local drivers are very familiar with this place. There is a P100 entrance which is well worth it. There are over four floors of... More

I loved the way the artworks were distributed in different levels of the museum. This gives visitors enough time to appreciate each piece of art without having to wait in a queue.

Other than art and history, give yourself a bit more time and sit down for a cup coffee at their cafe. Enjoy the nice view... it is very difficult to see mountains without any houses in Baguio now. Bencab's brew is one of the best I have ever tasted in Baguio City. Given its distance from downtown, spending more time... More

For those who appreciate art and culture, this museum is definitely worth a visit. An incredible collection housed in a building on the side of the mountain with plenty of natural light. I wish we had more time to explore.

This place is 30 Minutes away from Baguio City. A place where different art pieces and tribal collections by our National Artist Benedicto Cabrera (BenCab) can be found. The journey to the museum normally takes 15 minutes but due to the road works going on, it took us almost an hour to get there. But despite the hassle in traveling,... More
