“awesome”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

The place has more of what I expected. Nice art works and good food. After a long drive, we entered a large museum. The guide inside gave useful information and made me appreciate more the artist and the place.

“Best Gallery in the North”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

You can't ask for more especially from a National Artist like Bencab. This will rival several galleries in manila in terms of collection and exhibits.

A must see in Baguio.

“Cordillera Art”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Pros:
1. This museum is a good place to be if you're interested to know the culture of the Ifugaos
2. Modern Pinoy art is also well represented
3. Cafe Isabel offers great tasting food
4. My kids ( ages 9,7 & 3) enjoyed the pond with the koi fish and ducks, located outside the main building overlooking a great mountain view

Cons:
1. The place is quite far from Baguio downtown
2. Limited parking area

Summary:
The entrance fee of Php 100 is more than the worth of what the place can offer. I even chanced upon a photo opportunity with the national artist BenCab himself when I was there :)

“Arts at it's best”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Going home, after enjoying the City of Pines, do drop by this cool place. A must visit place to end your Baguio vacation. Your vacation won't be a certified hit If you wont drop by this place.



Tip: there is also a short cut along the way. Just be attentive to the road signs.
Going there by public transportation wont be easy. Taxi from the City would be available.
