Ben Cab Museum, Baguio

4.4
Explore exhibits of celebrated Philippine contemporary artist Benedicto Reyes Cabrera at Ben Cab Museum. Surrounded by farmland and a small forest with a mountainous backdrop, the smartly designed museum brings artists and culture-lovers together to observe remarkable examples of indigenous arts and crafts in a warm and modern environment. Inspect the preserved and protected relics and traditions of the northern Philippine highlands, which have inspired the artist since the 1960s. As you finish exploring the galleries of paintings, prints, sculptures, and drawings, head to the view deck to enjoy the scenery from a different perspective for a reasonable fee.

  • The museum is an inspiring place not just for creatives, but for anyone who is interested in art. The works are indeed beautiful. Don't rush. Savor the artworks. There is even an Erotica section that is both curious and artsy at the same time—it is off-limits to minors, of course. It is located far from the city proper, and is closed on Mondays. There are various local shops along the highway where you can buy good wood works—don't forget to haggle!
  • Love this musuem. Small but includes worthy artworks. Entrance fee cost 120 pesos. For public transportation from city center it costs us 250 pesos (fix rate not metered as per the taxi driver since it is far) around 20-40mins travel time depending on the traffic. nice view and you get to see different types of art pieces.
  • Inspiring place for creatives. The artworks are beautiful especially the ones that tell amazing stories. Even the outdoor view is an amazing work of art. Erotica section is off-limits to minors. The museum is closed Mondays.
  • A great place to go to appreciate local arts. The scenery outside with a small artificial lake made me see Koi and geese up close.
  • Remote place but its worth the extra effort. If you cannot afford to buy artworks for sale, surely you can bargain hunt beautiful piece of wood carvings at local shops along the highway. If you are a fan of wood works, its heaven for you!

Where to stay in Baguio

Look for upscale accommodations near Burnham Park, where you can check into a room with views over the central green area. Some resorts farther out of the city center make use of the increase in space by offering pools, onsite restaurants, and other amenities. Bed and breakfasts provide the more budget-conscious traveler with a comfortable place to rest after a long day of adventuring. You'll find these establishments on the outskirts of town, or along the side streets in and around the city center.
