It was always close whenever we tried to visit it or maybe we went to the wrong museum. Is this the one by the town hall?

Not lucky for us when we went here, the museum is closed. Unfortunately, we weren't able to see the artifacts and the histpry of Sagada encapsulated in a Museum.

A must see in Sagada
Apr 2018 • Family
Ganduyan Museum is the traditional name of Sagada town.

You will see the big and unique collection of Christina and her son Lorenz.

The museum was open on Monday after lunch.

It is close to the Municipal and the entrance fee is only 40 Pesos per person.

The video shown is informative and explains all sections of the museum.

the lone sagada museum
Dec 2017 • Family
going to museums in every place i visit is a personal requirement. and by far, ganduyan is the smallest, most intimate, and most educational museum i have ever been to. the curator who forgot to tell his name was so impressive in narrating the story behind each item in the place, even emphasizing that “igorot,” a word refering to their tribe, is a term not offensive to them since it literally means “mountain dweller”.

ganduyan is a very simple museum that occupies a floor area of around 60 sq m and yet the richness of the place culture-wise can give any mammoth museum a run for its money. too bad it’s not being supported by the local government that’s why it depends heavily on the kindness of the tourists who donate whatever amount to sustain the operations of the place.

and oh, taking pictures inside is forbidden.

Not open when I was there

Can't comment on what was inside as the day I went, it was closed. Turns out hours are very limited. Only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday 1 - 5 p.m. So, one had better confirm the opening days and hours before going.

Snapshot of the Igorot culture
Apr 2017 • Friends
What I like about this experience is the lecture given by the manager on their exhibits and the Igorot culture. You will learn a lot as it is given by a local who knows what he is talking about. The museum also needs our help so a small donation will go a long way.

Preserving the Culture
Feb 2017 • Friends
This museum is a private property owned by a family in Sagada. What is surprising is that they preserved the culture, artifacts of the town. A must see in your tour to Sagada

Last minute sidetrip

Ganduyan museum was not part of our places to go in sagada. It was a last minute experience for us. It was our last day at sagada having the sunrise viewing and the cave connections. While we are waiting for the bus back to baguio, we are waiting near sagada town hall and we saw this museum. From the outside it is just a simple door having the ganduyan museum name beside it. Not so attractive from the outside. But because we have time to kill , we went inside anyways, and it was an experience we will not trade for. There is this guy, who is the son of the collector herself who owned all of the displays inside, he is the one who introduce us to every item in the museum. This guy knows everything on display and had a great way of explaining it. He makes sure that everyone understands and at the same time will have a good time listening. The place is just a size of an average room wherein everyone could listen to him. He is the one orienting everybody. That is why after the orientation there is no need for you to roam around unless you see something that intrigues you more and he is very hapoy yo answer any of your questions. There is no better way to know and understand sagada than being in this museum. It is very rich, and could be the only place to have these artifacts. The entrance fee is 25 pesos but you can donate any amount if you want apart from your entrance fee to help maintain the place or upgrade it.

Very Interesting
Nov 2016 • Friends
This was a very interesting visit. From the outside, all you see is a small building. When you enter, you walk up some stairs and enter medium sized room filled with hundreds of artifacts. The museum guide asked all of us to sit on the floor as he explained the artifacts and told many stories. I'm glad we stopped here. I suggest that anyone visiting Sagada should stop here and learn more about the rich history of Sagada.

a mnust visit place
Feb 2016
i have been to sagada three times and this was the only time that i visited the museum. it was just a small area on the second floor of an old structure in the middle of the town. one will be surprised with the contents of the museum and you will be left in awe of how the curator/owner is so well-versed with the history of the place (being born and raised there) and the story behind the artifacts and items inside the museum. the session was short but very educational and are based on actual events/stories.
a must visit when in sagada.
