“Does not live up to the hype”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I went to the BenCab museum out of curiosity after its good review in several travel sites. For me, it was a big disappointment. Aside from the very few art works of a few Filipino artists, which is all it has, there is not much to see. Skip this place and save yourself the hassle and P100.

“Quality museum - good tour”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We recently went to BenCab museum and really enjoyed our visit. The art throughout is high quality and the building and grounds are spectacular. A guide gave us a tour which was helpful and interesting. Overall, if you like art, a great place to visit.

“impressive”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

impressive art works, garden and we love their food at casa isabel

if you do not have your own car, ask the taxi driver to wait for you outside. taxi is not available in the area and jeepneys are always full.

“You must go there!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our visit to BenCab Museum was THE highlight of our trip to Baguio.

I could spend a whole day there, viewing the art, taking in the fantastic view of nature while having a healthy lunch.

I am definitely going back!

“Best place to visit in Baguio”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The artwork gives a feel of the area's culture and the cafe near the rocky pool has great mountain views. Try the Taal Rice in the cafe, it was so good we brought some back to the hotel.
