After several trips in Benguet I often receive questions as to what are the things or which places tourists should opt when visiting the area. For those who do not know, the city has been holding to its cultural roots for ages and one way to showcase it is by visiting one of the country’s well-known museum – BenCab Museum.

The BenCab museum is a four-storey building, divided into various galleries which houses the exquisite collection of paintings, artifacts, sculptures, indigenous Cordillera artworks, amongst others, of Mr. Benedicto “BenCab” Reyes Cabrera, hailed as National Artist for Visual Arts in the Philippines and a best-selling painter.
