About Bencab Museum, Baguio
The ingenious artist Benedict Cabrera is perhaps one of the most celebrated and talented artistes in Philippines. His artworks and paintings are showcased at BenCab Museum. A treat for art lovers, the museum is eclectically built and displays some fascinating sculptures, 3D artworks and original paintings.

Bencab Museum, Baguio Reviews
I am not someone who knows much bout art. But his work had actually made me feel. Especially his painting. Sculpture in the other hand is really interesting. The artist / owner was there at the time of my visit. Humble and friendly
You will love the place whether you're a fan of Bencab/of art in general or not. Great that the museum encourages other artists and other genres by showcasing their works. The cafe has good food and great coffee. Highly recommended when you're in Baguio. 15-20 minutes from the city proper. Be there at opening time (9AM) to avoid the crowds (and traffic).
A wonderful quiet space just a short distance from downtown Baguio. Be sure to read the Museum web site, so you know in advance about what you will be seeing. Have a nice, inexpensive, lunch at the Cafe Sabel, considered one of the best in Baguio. Master artist BenCab lives on the site and is around the galleries often. If you are lucky, you will meet him. He is a charming, and very friendly man.
Inspiring place for those artists and non-artists. Didn't know Ben Cab is such a talented one. He uses different media in his crafts. You will also discover different artists and artworks in this museum. Very affordable price and you will appreciate nature here, as well! ❤
The place is quite a bit of a travel from the city centre. But people can easily access the place via taxi. Going back to city wont be a problem since there is high foot traffic in this area. You can also ask taxi drivers to wait for you too. While its a bit far, its totally worth your visit. It houses a lot of artwork paintings and others. There is also a gallery of artifacts from native times that will give you a glimpse of history. When taking pictures dont be shy to ask gallery attendants to help you out, they know the place too well and can do some unique trick shots. There is also a cafe available for visitors. Food is 4.5 out of 5. Try to take some time to explore their small garden and enjoy the view of the mountainside.
