BenCab Museum - Baguio City, Philippines

May 03, 2013


For my Art Junkie readers out there (who lives in the Philippines), a good summer destination for us, art junkies, can be found in Central Luzon! I'm talking about the BenCab Museum in Baguio City!! :)
This museum houses the collection of Ben Cabrera's art collection. Here are the photos of some of his art collection. :)


They have this so-called "EROTICA GALLERY", wherein the paintings and sculptures must be seen by mature visitors only. :) Here are some of the photos!











Look at this cool car art piece! :)



Some sculptures/statues.




Some paintings.
 

MY FAVORITE PAINTING! :)
 

Don't you dare miss the breath-taking view from the back deck of the museum! Trust me, the photos that I posted here cannot capture the real beauty of nature.



The whole place is so cozy and relaxing, I just want to stay in the Nipa Hut (in the picture) and read my favorite novel.



Iced Mocha form Cafe Sabel - a cafe inside the museum.

Trivia #1: The name "Sabel" from Cafe Sabel is the name of one of the Artist Ben Cabrera's model for his paintings and/or sculpture. Sabel, if my memory serves me right, is or was a vagrant (taong grasa).

Trivia #2: If in case you will be taking a cab on your way going home from BenCab Museum, make sure that you will allot a few minutes to wait for a cab to arrive, or prepare yourself for a 5 minute walk for the nearest Jeepney Stop.

Trivia #3: You are allowed to take pictures inside the museum, provided that you will not use the Flash of your camera. So, prepare a good camera lens!

  5. I went to Baguio for Panagbenga this year, but didn't get to visit the BenCab museum. Now I know what I missed. Next time, I'm definitely going to go there.
