BenCab Museum

BenCab has a lot more to offer than your regular museums. It houses several galleries that contain tribal artifacts as well as contemporary art. Not only that, it also has a beautiful farm and garden and boasts a wonderful view of the mountains.

Should you ever find yourself in Baguio City to enjoy the view of the mountains and the cold air, spare yourself from walking into the crowded tourist traps like Mines View and just travel a little bit further to the BenCab Museum.

You don’t only get a view, you also get extra points in culture and art here. For the tribal artifacts, the most dominant display is this wall of ’bulol’s which are carved wooded sculptures of the indigenous people’s rice granary gods. The other galleries contain works of Ben Cabrera (BenCab) and other masters of Philippine art, traditional and contemporary. There is also a print gallery with both vintage and contemporary prints, maps, and photographs of the Philippines. In an enclosed room you have an erotica gallery as well.
