“Best attraction in Baguio”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

I do not know about Bencab until i saw it in tripadvisor. I was hesitant to include this in my itinerary because it is far from the city. But i still did. And to my surprise the gallery is very good, beyond what i eas expecting. The arts are amazing it is a 4 storey art gallery with a restaurant and a garden.

“Worth the Travel”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

I should say that BenCab Museum is really worth the travel.

Art aficionados or not, it's a must see. Every floor has has something spectacle to find.

Down the cafe, it's another splendor of the view that would make you want to just sit and sip their native coffee and hot cocoa (a must) while giving in to one's musing.

“A good place to spend an afternoon or even the whole day!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

The artworks in the museum are very interesting & there's always something new. The cafe serves good food! The beautiful gardens are a perfect place to relax, reflect or just enjoy a book. It's like a rest house you always wanted.

On a previous trip 2 years ago, it was a rainy gloomy day so we couldn't enjoy the gardens like the last time. But since the gallery was empty we ran into BenCab himself who chatted with us for awhile & we even had a photo op! It's worth a visit!

For very young kids best to just have them play in the garden while you look around the museum..

Make sure you pass by the museum store! I always end up buying something each time I go!

“Awesome art works”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

It is worth the long ride. The art works of contemporary Filipino artists, especially BenCab, is worth visiting. But be prepared to fork out P100. You will be allowed to take photos without flash. There is a cafe if you feel hungry. You can also visit the garden and enjoy the sights and fresh clean air.

“A relaxing and very visual retreat”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Although BenCab Museum is a bit far from the other tourist attractions, it is definitely worth the trip. There are a lot of paintings and art installations by Ben Cabrera and other local artists like Kidlat Tahimik. There are also numerous Cordilleran artifacts on display. The museum has a great view in every floor as it has balconies and big windows that open to a view of the mountainside. Coffee and pasta from Cafe Sabel are a treat or you can simply choose to relax at the man-made fishpond in the garden.

I went here with different family members in 4 separate occasions and each visit was a very memorable one.
