xxxxxxxxxxx Welcome to banaue.info This page is: Sculpture Museum

It is evident that the owner/creator of this place spent a lot of time collecting artwork from throughout the Cordillera region and that he has a talent for displaying them. This extremely well-done museum is clearly worth the price of admission and an hour or two of your time. It is 1.8 km south of downtown Banaue, just across the highway from the Las Vegas Lodge.

Yes indeed. You are really seeing human skulls here. The Cordillera people were until very recently headhunters.

At the entrance to the Cordillera Sculpture Museum there is on display a nicely maintained Ifugao house. Take note please that this house is that of the Ifugao people only while the contents of the museum represent all the cultures of the Cordillera Region. The Cordillera is the mountainous region in north central Luzon Island where several different indigenous peoples live.

A native backpack covered in thatch, with the same material used on houses, to keep rain from the contents of the pack. Walking staffs, some of which have metal tips which make them handy weapons as well.

BATAD! Batad is the primary outlying destinaton for most visitors. Because of recent road improvements you no longer have to stay overnight in Batad. You can instead leave early from Banaue for Batad, walk the terraces and see Tappiah Falls, then return to your lodging in Banaue. Learn more about Batad.
PRONUNCIATION: Most Malay languages give stress to the second syllable so Banaue is pronounced "Bah NOW way". Similarly Batad is "Bah TAHD"; Hungduan is "Hung DEW an"; Mayoyao is "Mah YO ya oh".
