Located inside the University of the Philippines Baguio, Museo Kordilyera is the first ethnographic museum in the Northern part of the Philippines. The three-story museum was formally opened to the public on January 31 of this year.
According to Dr. Salvador-Amores, museum’s director, the Museo Kordilyera is focusing in the collection, preservation, and exhibition of artifacts and other objects unique to the Cordillera region, its peoples, and its cultures and traditions. The museum aims to cultivate an understanding of and respect for the identity and culture of the indigenous peoples of the Cordillera and Northern Luzon as an integral part of the evolving Filipino culture.
Inside the museum, you can find contributions from the collections of BenCab Museum, UP Baguio Library and Archives, the Saint Louis University Museum and the Diocese of Baguio Museum and Archives.

Aside from exhibition spaces, the museum also houses a room for the orientation of visitors; an audio-visual room; a shop; and, a café.
