  • There is no doubt that the paintings and structures exhibited in Bencab gallery are just awesome. It was inspiring for people who has the love for arts just like me. The entrance fee of Php120.00 is r...  more »

  • Going to the place is not that smooth. Narrow roads and uphill and downhill. Artworks are fascinating. I admire specifically the works of BenCab. We were informed that food is good in their restaurant...  more »

  • My family and I wanted to come here to escape the overwhelming crowd in Baguio, hoping that it wouldn't be as such. However there were still so many people here although not as much. I've never been to this museum before and it was quite interesting. It showed the traditional arts of the natives. Guests can learn a lot about the culture and history of the region. Paintings and sculptures lined the walls although with penises and vaginas. The cafe was out of the blue serving pasta. Drinks were too sweet. Overall, I'd give this a recommendation for a visit in Baguio.
  • Ben Cab should really be a national artist. His art encompasses almost all deep sorrows as well as the joys of living. I envy his passion for nature preservation and making it available as an art.
  • this place has a lot of art collections..you can ride a taxi for a fare of around Php90-100 from the Baguio Town Proper or you can ride a jeep for Php10, Jeep Terminal is along Kayang St. (Upper) near market, look for a jeep going to "KM 6 Asin Road"..going back to town is also easy, jeep terminal from Bencab is near....it is open daily except Monday.
  • Must visit when in Baguio. A relaxing place to just chill, unwind and appreciate nature. Cafe Sabel is serving food for everyone. Love the place!
  • Take a nice camera with you. GoPro pics are awesome too, but don't take videos. It's not allowed, or just don't get caught. hehe.
