Can't comment on what was inside as the day I went, it was closed. Turns out hours are very limited. Only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday 1 - 5 p.m. So, one had better confirm the opening days and hours before going.

What I like about this experience is the lecture given by the manager on their exhibits and the Igorot culture. You will learn a lot as it is given by a local who knows what he is talking about. The museum also needs our help so a small donation will go a long way.

This museum is a private property owned by a family in Sagada. What is surprising is that they preserved the culture, artifacts of the town. A must see in your tour to Sagada

Ganduyan museum was not part of our places to go in sagada. It was a last minute experience for us. It was our last day at sagada having the sunrise viewing and the cave connections. While we are waiting for the bus back to baguio, we are waiting near sagada town hall and we saw this museum. From the outside... More

This was a very interesting visit. From the outside, all you see is a small building. When you enter, you walk up some stairs and enter medium sized room filled with hundreds of artifacts. The museum guide asked all of us to sit on the floor as he explained the artifacts and told many stories. I'm glad we stopped here.... More

I wasn't expecting a lot upon entering this place because it looked so small from the outside. But once you go to the second floor, it definitely looks like a museum. You see all kinds of artifacts and random things. And the curator was very informative. I really learned a lot from his talk and you could really see his... More

Antiques are varied and the host who gives the history lesson was very friendly, She was very entertaining and you would be amazed as to how she narrates the lives of her people, she knows her history. Place was very nice and clean!

The #1 reason to visit is not the actual museum itself and its shelves of many Sagada and Cordilleran artifacts. No, the actual reason to visit the Ganduyan Museum is the story shared by Mr. Aben (I didn't get the name unfortunately), son of the late Sagada artist and museum founder, Ms. Christina Aben. Hearing Mr. Aben talk through the... More
