“Respect upon entry”

Laperal White House
Reviewed 24 March 2014 via mobile

The Laperal White house is starting to gain a wider audience not only because of its ghostly apparitions but also due to the fact that it has become a bamboo museum. People often visit this place primarily to feel the presence of restless spirits, not minding the 50 pesos /head entrance fee. And when I visited this place, I really felt something different. As if someone is actually watching your every move. I then told the care taker about my oddly experience to which she replied that the original owner was a lady who loved the house so much. And because of this, it wouldn't cost someone if they will ask her permission first before entering the premises. Like what Filipinos say: tabi tabi po.

Baguio City's famed "White House" was the ancestral home of the Laperal Family. Some time after it was abandoned, word spread that it was haunted, and that strange noises emanate from its premises at night and that spirits could be seen moving around. Late last year (2013), it was converted and transformed into what is now reportedly the country's first and only BAMBOO MUSEUM, housing incredible works of art done on bamboo poles by skilled Ifugao craftsmen. It is indeed almost inconceivable how these extremely talented wood carvers (led by low-key ROLDAN PAIT of the Asin Bamboo Carvers Guild) were able to do such intricate and detailed works on singular bamboo poles. You really have to see it to believe it. With an entrance fee of just fifty pesos, there simply is no reason for you not to go there. Picture-taking is allowed. And visitors are even permitted to explore the upper floors of this erstwhile haunted house. Who knows, there might be some spirits still lurking there. Surely, you don’t want to miss Baguio's newest attraction!

Again, like the other review, this is said to be a haunted house. And yes, you explore it on your own.

What I liked about the place is that they allowed us to take pictures inside. It now houses wooden carved artworks made by the locals (nothing much to see tho).

The rooms were big and had in-wall walk-in cabinets that gives you that eerie feeling that something is in there (or was it just my mind playing tricks on me).

Good visit and for you to take pictures if you're in the vicinity; it probably will take about 15-30 minutes to go around inside.

Laperal house is a rather grand white coloured 3 storied wooden house that has been abandoned for a long time - it is now owned by a rich person and converted into an art gallery.

We visited it - it is easy to reach - a 10 minute walk form Panagbenga park.

There was an art exhibition in progress, which made it easier to see the house - I hope they turn it into a museum like has been done for the Bell house. It did not have any guided tour etc so we just had to explore it on our own with some nuggets of info from the care taker.

And oh yes - we did not see any ghosts! It is just a fancy story.
