I am not that much into paintings but I was totally awed by the collections displayed in BenCab Museum. I never thought that art appreciation could also be fun. At the back of the museum is a beautiful garden with pond and a hanging bridge which leads to an eco-trail along a forested slope. They also have a restaurant/cafe buth... More

From the city proper. You could ride a jeepney going there. If I am not mistaken we paid 15-20 pesos for the ride to BenCab road. The jeepney ride must be at least 10minutes. Though the experience is so much worth it. It's not just works of art. The place could offer you a view that would make you proud... More

Nice place to visit, not very big but pleasant place. Attention, the location as displayed on TripAdvisor is wrong, approx 5 km farther out of the city.

If you love arts, paintings, architecture- no places like Bencab! Our experience was definitely something worth keeping. Really love to go back maybe next year to see new artworks.

Indeed one of the best go-to's in Baguio. Best to visit during morning and have the view of mountain ranges and also a glance of the West Philippine Sea. There are three gallery floors. The gallery that I like best is the paintings of Bencab himself. The bulol collection is also one of the attraction in the museum. There is... More

The place is a little bit tricky to visit especially if you bring your own car and it was your first time in Baguio.The museum has many artworks on display both old and modern. Some are a little bit too creepy but really artistic. Another plus for this place is it's beautiful view at the back where my kids enjoy... More

Went here a year ago.. The place is ok but you have to pay for an entrance fee. Paintings and arts were nice but seemingly lacking of other special artworks of BenCab. The building is architecturally designed with touch of nature. We went here without knowing that roads are under construction. We arrived at about 2.00pm and we are so... More

If you love architecture and is an art fanatic, this place is for you. The staff were nice and friendly, the ambiance was surreal. The only problem we encountered was, we went there riding a taxi. We waited 2 hours for any cab to arrive but no one came. We ended up walking 2kms to the jeepney stopover, on a... More

Very nice experience! Great atmosphere! Combination of old and new! Great way to spend a couple hours. Make sure you visit the wood shops along the road.
