Another ethnographic museum that showcases the rich culture and history of the Cordillerans is the Museo Kordilyera—the three-story museum is located inside the University of the Philippines-Baguio. It was first opened to the public in January 2019 and deemed the first ethnographic museum in the northern part of the country. The place houses collections of unique Cordillera artifacts that represent its people, culture, and tradition. Here, you can see various exhibits like paintings, wood carvings, and ethnographic photographs. Due to the pandemic, the museum is closed, but follow its social media account to get updated!
