Your driver will pick you up from your accommodation in Baguio City. From there, you will go to the Baguio Museum, which embodies the cultural heritage and history of the city. It was built to resemble a traditional Ifugao home. Once inside, be sure to observe the dioramas that depict the lives of the indigenous Cordilleran tribes. Feel free to look at the extensive display of tribal artifacts from the six provinces of the Cordillera Region as well. Included in the exhibit are ornate native jewelry, burial jars, and musical instruments.
Afterward, you will make your way to Museo Kordilyera. This ethnographic museum is managed by the University of the Philippines and operates as a "living museum." It mainly showcases exhibits that center on the livelihood and everyday lives of the various native tribes in the mountainous region.
You will then travel to the BenCab Museum to start your tour. Here, you will find the art collection of Filipino National Artist Benedicto Cabrera (BenCab) alongside works by fellow notable artists and crafts from the northern highlands.
Check out the various galleries at the museum, including one dedicated to Cordillera art pieces such as native sculptures, weapons, and artifacts. BenCab Museum also has a coffee shop called Cafe Sabel. Sip on a warm cup of coffee as you stroll by the museum's pond, organic farm, and a mini-forest with an eco-trail.
Finally, you will cap off your tour with a visit to the Tam-Awan Village. Tam-Awan Village is a reconstructed Cordillera village complete with representations of traditional Ifugao and Kalinga huts. Admire art exhibits, have your portrait sketched by talented Baguio artists, and have a cup of the local coffee in the village cafe.
