Baguio City in the Cordillera region in the northern Philippines is dubbed as the “Summer Capital of the Philippines” that is why people flock here throughout the year especially during summer to escape the heat in their places of origin. Aside from the cold weather, amazing views, and good food, Baguio City also presents a unique cultural heritage that is distinct from the rest of the country. We are very lucky that several museums are built around the city to showcase the art, history, and culture of the region. Below are five of the several museums that are really worth the visit:
BenCab, or Benjamin Cabrera, is a National Artist for Visual Arts, is the owner of this majestic museum. It houses several of his contemporary art collections and own works. You will also see many bul-ul (a carved wooden figure used to guard the rice crops by the Ifugaos) installations here. “Sabel” a common theme in BanCab’s works, is actually inspired by a real-life scavenger. A coffee shop is located at the ground floor of the museum which he also named “Sabel”. An eco-trail outside Sabel Café where traditional Cordillera houses can be seen can also be explored for a separate fee, just ask the café staff to avail. Nature and art combined indeed. Entrance fee is Php100 (Php80 for students and senior citizens).
