Campfolkswagen: A haven for Volks lovers!

Campfolkswagen Baguio City | Turista Boy

Campfolkswagen, Longlong Road, Baguio City – If you are an avid collector of something, why not consider collecting miniature cars, Volkswagen in particular, and everything in between? This new museum-café in Baguio City is one of the newest attractions that I suggest you visit because of its unique theme and peaceful ambiance. It is my first time to see a boutique museum-café that houses more than 2,500 individual pieces of Volkswagen, either big or small – anything that suits your imagination.

Located along Longlong Road, about 5 minutes past the famous Tam-awan Village, Campfolkswagen is more than meets the eye. Tracing back its roots to the passion of Sir Roland Cruz on collecting different Volkswagen miniature models through the years, this museum-café was born. He curated it in such a way that it showcased Volkswagen’s rich history through the years until its introduction to Philippine soil.

The museum below the café has four parts, ranging from the beginning of the company in 1957 until the recent-day history of Volkswagen as Sir Roland would be the one that would tour you around the area. Lucky us when we went there for a visit, we were the only customers that day and he toured us around his collection. Not only that, it also is a cradle of local artists’ artworks, notable that of Jordan Mang-osan and his solar paintings.

What they offer (and what to expect!)

Aside from their boutique café where you will be introduced to the café’s theme, there is the 2-floor underground museum showcasing Sir Roland’s 2,500 Volkswagen miniature models and other memorabilia. This 15-year collection is one for the books because different collector’s items can be found and most of them have never been out of the box! For the museum, they only charge a fee of P 60.00 (US$ 1.25) for adults and P 40.00 (< US$ 1.00) for senior citizens, students, PWDs, and kids.

Their café also offers sandwiches and light snacks before or after touring the museum below. It is a perfect spot for you to relax your senses as the view is not just great, I tell you, it is also serene. I see myself working remotely here whenever I would have my free time. It is the perfect spot to just be with nature. Their price range is from P 25.00 – 140.00. A very affordable getaway far from the city’s hustle and bustle. They also have a souvenir shop just in case you might a piece of them, too. I tell you, this café is one of the quietest I have ever been to, and it is a good thing, too, to sip a cup of coffee while enjoying nature’s view.
