Museum is closed from 12nn to 1-m. Entrance fee to the museum cost PhP70. Good area to spot a few fine collection, some are poor (and some incorrectly) labelled. There's a small area to read some books at the souvenir shop.

The Museum showcases lot of heirloom pieces fro the Cordillera Region. But what I love best is the outdoor Museum where there is a huge local cherry tree and bontoc huts and herbs. Truly wortht to visit.

Located at the heart of the town, this museum is very rich in information about the culture, tradition, and history of various provinces. It gives you a clear understanding and view of Igorots (native settlers of Northern Philippines) which really helps in embracing the life...More
