I am fond of galleries and museums and Ben Cab museum is no exception. I was already eager to have a visit to this place since I have heard of it last year. The museum has four floors including a garden and a cafe (Cafe Sabel) located at the basement. The garden has a good view of a mountain, the... More

While the main attraction of this museum is undoubtedly the artwork, there is much more for those who don't particularly enjoy going to museums. There is native furniture that you can actually touch, fantastic views of the surrounding mountains, and a café that serves organic fare. Avail of the services of a guide if you can and don't forget to... More

Although the place is quite far from the city (about 30mins drive I think), this is a place you wouldn't want to miss. We were here last December of 2012. The arts were amazing, but I went here for the view and the food. Had brunch outside their restaurant which feels almost perfect, food and the view are both 9/10... More

yeah Amazing, intelligent Bencab museum. No vapid at all from outside graffiti wall down to farm garden. I'm not that art expert but appreciating art is fairness. Fresh food from cafe Isabel and eco- friendly. A place worth visiting.

I do not know about Bencab until i saw it in tripadvisor. I was hesitant to include this in my itinerary because it is far from the city. But i still did. And to my surprise the gallery is very good, beyond what i eas expecting. The arts are amazing it is a 4 storey art gallery with a restaurant... More

I should say that BenCab Museum is really worth the travel. Art aficionados or not, it's a must see. Every floor has has something spectacle to find. Down the cafe, it's another splendor of the view that would make you want to just sit and sip their native coffee and hot cocoa (a must) while giving in to one's musing.

The artworks in the museum are very interesting & there's always something new. The cafe serves good food! The beautiful gardens are a perfect place to relax, reflect or just enjoy a book. It's like a rest house you always wanted. On a previous trip 2 years ago, it was a rainy gloomy day so we couldn't enjoy the gardens... More

It is worth the long ride. The art works of contemporary Filipino artists, especially BenCab, is worth visiting. But be prepared to fork out P100. You will be allowed to take photos without flash. There is a cafe if you feel hungry. You can also visit the garden and enjoy the sights and fresh clean air.

Although BenCab Museum is a bit far from the other tourist attractions, it is definitely worth the trip. There are a lot of paintings and art installations by Ben Cabrera and other local artists like Kidlat Tahimik. There are also numerous Cordilleran artifacts on display. The museum has a great view in every floor as it has balconies and big... More

The road to the museum is downhill but it is worth the short trip, just few minutes away from City proper. I am not very art literate but I enjoyed all the works of art on display. Bonus was meeting the Maestro myself, Mr. Ben Cabrera. Do not forget to take a peek at the Erotica Room minus the children... More
