Categories: Specialty Museums, Museums
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.

A mix of art and nature... it's a place you cannot miss in this city. The garden and the view is just so amazing... the food is just quite expensive and not very reasonable.

Trip to this museum is worth the distance and traffic. Enjoyed taking coffee at the coffee shop downstairs. Awesome gallery of the national artist. Bravo Bencab!
Many awesome reviews about the place so I'll just write about how to get there on public transport. Go visit. It's worth it. About 90 pesos to get there from Session Road in Baguio via taxi. Some charge a contract price. Highest I heard of was 250. I left that taxi and just waited for another. To go back to the city from BenCab, one can either wait for a taxi which is rare or just walk back a little bit maybe 5-10mins and get on a public jeep at St Joseph's Church. Fare is just 11 pesos. There's sometimes a jeep waiting and sometimes you just have to wait for one to come.
Tricky to find but more than worth the effort. An oasis of calm, beauty and interest just outside Baguio.
A bit challenging to find the place, but it was still worth the trip! Reminder to students to bring their IDs to avail of the discount- though the fee isn't that bad at P120/head. It might help to have someone on standby in each area who can provide more info regarding the displays in case the guests would want to know more.

A fresh relief from the Baguio busy streets. You can also find works of other artists. Try to come earlier in the morning or off peak days to digest each art piece without the too much crowd. The usual flow of guest comes after lunch. Entrance fee is 100 peso but for students and senior citizens its 80 peso but a valid ID must be presented.
A relatively small, well-curated museum in the mountains. This is a little hard to get to, but it'll be worth your time!
