One of the best tourist attractions that we visited during our Baguio trip was BenCab Museum located at Tuba, Benguet featuring Artworks by Ben Cab (Benedicto Reyes Cabrera) and other Filipino artists and also the Indigenous Northern Highlands Exhibits. It is one of the greatest museums in our country. Aside from multiple galleries, it has a cafe, function room, museum shop and you’ll definitely see an amazing view specially in farm and garden level
The museum has a total of 4 levels: Street Level which is the entrance of the museum, Level 2 and 3 where you can see most of the artwork collections, and the Farm and Garden Level.
So while I’m still composing my travel diary enrty, let me share some of the photos that I took using Fujifilm X-A2.
|Admission fee: 150php|
The Museum is open from Tuesdays-Sundays 9:00am-6:00pm. Last ticket sold at 5:30pm
I love the museum because it showcase the Cordillera’s rich culture and traditions in many different form of arts.
If you want to go on extra adventure, Eco trail is also available for trekking with an additional P150 and P50 for the tour guide.
