For someone who is really not interested in arts, I find this place very inviting. You'll see art pieces that will just blow your mind. My most favorite part though is the garden. Absolutely loved it. Very relaxing ambiance.

It's a nice little gem that should be on everyone's to do list while in Baguio. It's a nice way to take in all of the culture that surrounds you while in the Benguet city. It's hard not to mention the Erotica gallery which is easy to miss since it's on the side. Plus, the garden/farm area is a great... More

The thing that struck me the most during the two ocassions ive visited this museum was the amount of details placed in the craftsmanship of what was on display. they were made by native Ifugaos and most of them was a household object and serve a practical use; to have that much design in a tool says a lot about...

Definitely worth a visit. Contemporary Filipino artworks. Have a coffee or tea in the cafe area which has great view.

I suggest you come early. Like before between 9 to 10am so that you can take pictures freely, without photobombers. This place is attracting more and more tourists and it makes the place a bit crowded every hour. The museum has a nice arrangement of their art pieces. Their location is isolated from the city and it's a good thing.... More

I love watching art and this museum is just the perfect place for it. Plus for the location that it is in the mountain with river on sight.

A few minute drive from the heart of Baguio is BenCab which houses paintings and important artifacts of the Baguio Igorot Culture. It has a cafe at the bottom floor and the exhibits are truly fascinating! I just wish they would do a little something to the smell indoors because the building is relatively new but adding fresheners and deodorizers... More

Bencab's lines of arts are very comprehensive that you won't definitely get bored with all the corners of the museum. The cafe downstairs is cozy. The majestic scenery outside is so breathtaking, it seems you're in another country with the view and fog covering it! I'd love to come back here! :)

Just went to check out the place, unfortunately the place was packed (it was a holiday, my bad) so I didn't really enjoy the place. a lot of people were busy taking pictures and selfies so there was little time to enjoy the paintings/works of arts because most of the time I was avoiding to be caught in their pictures...

Structure inside the museum is nice. Parking space is limited. Artworks are amazing. Some of it reminded me of Pintò Art Museum with the same artists. The view is calming. Souvenir shop is expensive. I got tired of going up the stairs from the bottom where the coffee shop is located - I got sweaty. Going here once is enough... More
