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.
