BenCab Museum is one of Baguio’s frequently visited tourist spots. It is located at Km. 6 Asin Road, Tadiangan, Tuba, Benguet. It’s about 15-minute drive from Baguio City proper and is also accessible by public transportation. It is home to the art collections of Philippine National Artist Benedicto Cabrera populary known as BenCab. He is considered as a master of contemporary Philippine art. A graduate of Fine Arts from the University of the Philippines, BenCab began carving a niche for himself in Manila’s art circles shortly after completing his degree.
BenCab museum is composed of nine galleries and a coffee shop. The galleries include BenCab’s collection of paintings, drawings, prints, and sculpture. Below are some of his collections. We were very glad to be accommodated in the museum during the Baguio Food Tour 2014. It was also a pleasure to meet the master himself.
