This was my 2nd visit to BenCab and I was surprised to see new arts and collections being displayed. Similar to museums abroad, BenCab also invites and features artworks from other artists. Make sure to try Cafe Sabel, which is located at the lowest floor of the museum.

When in Baguio, it is worth the trip , especially if you are an art aficionado. The museum features different artists . There is a room dedicated to native Ifugao wood works. But of course the best room is the one that features Ben Cab's works. The building has 4 floors , the highest floor being street level , the... More

I am not an art connoisseur, but the moment I stepped inside BenCab Museum, my interest in art was revived. I fell in love with the place immediately. The ambiance is so tranquil and peaceful, I felt like staying longer. The display on the gallery are really interesting pieces, and are all worth a second, maybe even third, fourth visit.... More

We personally met Ben Cabrera, during our visit. I love the architecture of the museum, its landscape and accomodating staffs. Sabel's 'presence' is all over the place, BenCab's auteur. We didn't tried the cafe since we heard that it's terrible.

This is one of the 'must visits when ever I bring friends up to Baguio. Very nice building with a fantastic collection of bulols. The outside grounds are Beautiful, to say the least!

The BenCab Museum, or rather art gallery, had on display some really interesting pieces, and well worth the visit for that. Additional attractions are the small cafe/coffee shop, the outdoor garden setting and walks. In addition you have the opportunity to get some wonderful views along the valley.

I was curious as to why this was rated as a top attraction in Baguio so we decided to visit. It is a bit far off than the usual spots, but with the GPS (Waze, Here) it was easy to find. You need to pay a P100 entrance fee but it is a steal given what is to be seen... More

This is a must-see place when you visit Baguio! You'll truly appreciate art and the greatness of Ben Cab, the National Artist. After having a tour of the musuem, you should try Cafe Sabel at the ground/garden level of the building. Ang sarap ng Duck Flakes! :)

The place and the art galleries are just simply powerful and provocative that I spent minutes on each frame/piece trying to figure out what it means for me. Some art pieces have humor and it's not only Ben Cab art pieces in there.

Squeeze in a trip to the BenCab Museum if you can. We went by taxi to the Museum; it's about a 20-minute trip one way, including minor traffic jams because of the narrow roads. Entrance is P100/person and the best part is you can take a gazillion pictures inside the museum and courtyard. Soak in the art; one can easily... More
