Nice place to appreciate art and good food. It houses every art you could think of. But what i love most was the collection of sculptures and artifacts related to Cordillera's rich culture and practices. The museum has restaurants too that offers good food and amazing view of the garden. For those who don't have a car it's better to... More

3/4 floors of art. Well worth the trip out from the centre. Take a guide round the park if you have the energy after the artwork. Cafe/restaurant was excellent. Seemed to be a destination for ladies who lunch so time your dining to avoid large groups although the staff cope very well with 20-30 diners at one time

Me an' wife visited here as it looked really good online but was very small an' at PHP100 each entry we thought it might be ok as we had seen there was a guided tour but then found it was not included in the price. The food area was pricey with small amounts of food so we didn't use it.... More

Very well presented with European style to it. Lovely eatery to relax after strolling around this Museum. Parking can be a little awkward though.

great building making the most of the hilly location, and out of town. The art was good -modern with displays of artifacts of the ifugat people, but could have been interpreted better. Worth the trip out. Easy to get to by jeepney.

The gallery is 15-min away from the town proper, fare is fairly cheap at less than 100 pesos. The entrance fee is at that rate as well, while 80 pesos for students. There's a wide variety of collections. From traditional art like Bulul sculptures to contemporary paintings by Mr. Bencab and his contemporaries. If you're lucky enough, Mr. Bencab accommodates...
