    Aside from galleries, visitors can stay at a café called Café Sabel that offers fresh and natural food with ingredients directly from BenCab’s organic farm. It offers a signature coffee blend called BenCab’s Brew that is made from coffee trees in the farm. This café overlooks the forest and duck pond so guests can feel cozy while admiring the great view of magnificent mountains.

    There is also a museum shop that sells art books, paper products such as postcards and notepads, highland art & crafts like wood carvings and textiles. Other wearable souvenir items including t-shirts and caps are also available.

    The Bencab Museum is committed to the promotion of the arts, preservation, conservation, and protection of the environment, as well as the Cordilleras’ culture and traditions.
