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.

  • Good museum but it was out in the middle of nowhere! We used waze to get there and it was a good half hour away from the city center. Wide variety of artwork using different media and materials. Gorge...  more »

  • A lot to see in this museum, worth the entrance fee of P120 pesos per head. An array of paintings and varied artworks of talented artists are on display to amaze and tickle one's mind. 😉 There's also a café on the lower level to satisfy one's hunger pangs! Very nice garden, too! Must-visit when in Baguio!
  • This is a really must see Museum. Great artworks, Ben was there when we're there. 120 Peso is really worth:)But the cab that wait for us charged us a 700 peso just for a 30minutes of waiting. Bloody Hell. Can't do anything.
  • Ask to have a guided tour so you can appreciate the art more. The tour guides will also gladly take your picture
  • I would consider this a must see, not only for the great museum and garden, but also for a good drive through suburban villages. I would suggest paying your cab to wait for you. The museum has a lot of traditional pieces and a lots of contemporary paintings.
  • Nice view and excellent food. Wish that there was no entrance fee since there are some not into the arts but love good food

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.
