You have to pay 120p for entrance fee but photos and statues as well as structure here are very beautiful and suitable for people who like taking photos. There is a garden and restaurant for visitors. It opens from 9am to 6pm every day.

The exhibits found in the museum are quite unusual than those that I have already seen. Works made by various artists have their own expression which makes it very unique and fresh to one's view. Aside from the gallery, you can also take a stroll along the open area found outside the cafe of the museum.

A breath of fresh air from the usual tourist destinations. Not for those who are only after photos and can't appreciate what art, abstract and satire means. Best reached using a private/hired vehicle as the museum is about 20 mins away from the city proper.

I love the Erotica section the most :-) because Bencab articulated the most unarticulated subject among the conservatve Filipinos. And of course the location, which affords a nice view of the private mountainside (they say) and some parts of La Union. There was one guide there named Ryan, who knows exactly the spot where you should stand to get photographed.... More

I have been to BenCab 2 times now and I can say the place has stayed true to what it really existed for. The artworks are just so divine and deep. It's a good place for someone who want to expand his/her ideation.

Me and my partner went here on a Saturday. The place was a bit crowded but there's still enough space to view all the artworks the place has to offer. The artworks are unique and one of a kind. The paintings are breathtaking. The place is quiet and it's the perfect place for art enthusiasts. I would love to visit... More

Very nice place, the art pieces were very interesting. The cafe at the basement also serves good food at good prices. Key thing to improve : customer service levels of museum staff at the reception area where you buy tickets. They are easily distracted by big noisy groups (we had the misfortune of arriving at the same time as a... More
