Bencab Museum (May 17, 2012)

On our 4th and last day in Baguio, D was feeling much betters so we headed to the Bencab Museum in Tuba Benguet. The ride by taxi took about 15 minutes through narrow and steep roads nestled with the hills.

The museum had just opened so we had it all to ourselves. It is a 3 storey expanse that houses several art pieces. Works from different artists (not just Bencab's) ranging from paintings, sculptures to modern and contemporary items are on display.

From the second floor terrace, you can see a magnificent view of the lusciously green mountains of Benguet. The sun was out that day but the clean, pure air was quite refreshing.

I love going to museums so I could spend one whole day exploring it. Unfortunately, we had a bus to catch so our time was limited. But be sure to drop by Bencab Museum whenever you are in Baguio. Entrance fee is 100 pesos. Photography without flash is allowed.

It seems that Bencab museum is very popular, which is very good. We need to appreciate art more.

Yes I wish we had more time to explore. I wanted to dine at Cafe Sabel. But we were in a rush. Maybe next time! :D
