  • Finally an interesting Museum. Magnificent photos of Masferrè concerning the populations of the place. Very simple but interesting

  • Small museum created by a Dutch nun. Entry 70PHP. Inner part with objects, pictures of the early 20th century from local tribes, an outside party with reconstructed houses. To understand their lives turned around the rice harvest. Do it alone or with a guide. Allow an hour for the visit.

  • Museum is closed from 12nn to 1-m. Entrance fee to the museum cost PhP70. Good area to spot a few fine collection, some are poor (and some incorrectly) labelled. There's a small area to read some book...  more »

  • A most conprehensive view into the various cultures across the Sierra Madres. It is small, decently organized, a tour of which can be accomplished within a few hours. I do not understand the logic behind why this (& other) museums in the country prohibit flashless photography inside the exhibit halls. It would encourage further study by the general public if the experience and images of the artefacts can be exported. I stole some nonetheless precisely for this purpose.
  • The Bontoc Museum was founded by a Belgian nun, countrywomanwhose aim was to preserve the history and heritage of the indigenous peoples of the Cordillera region particularly that of the Ifugao people. Hence, this museum houses an array of authentic artifacts and photos reflective of Ifugao’s culture.
  • Never miss this when in Bontoc! This place deserves more visitors. The rich history of the Mountain Province has been well preserved here.
  • Authentic display of Bontoc Igorots history. Cultural Wealth. Priceless.
  • Where you can see the legend native things and etc.... That was use before in the olden times
