Pinto Art Museum, Antipolo City

4.5
#1 of 18 in Museums in Calabarzon Region
Nestled amid lush landscaped gardens, Pinto Art Museum features works by modern and contemporary artists in open-air, Mediterranean-style villas. Art installations here merge with elements of nature, instead of hanging rigidly from the gallery walls. Walk the green lawns dotted with stone, metal, and wax statues, and look for a meditation garden behind a white chapel. When you find it, inspect the drawers with anonymous letters written by visitors and dedicated to their lost loves--an interactive art project run by the museum. The galleries boast many pieces of mixed media art, oil paintings, embroidery, and wire sculptures, as well as traditional Philippine paintings showing scenes from everyday life.

  • The BUT is the location. If you are in central Manila it is well over an hour by car, and you will need both car and driver for four hours or so. So, you need to want to go! If you do, you will be rew...  more »
  • It is not a good idea if you are on a tight budget. Too far and it has a pricey entrance. I am a native of Antipolo and yet, I have never been inside this museum because of the entrance fee. I saw a l...  more »

  • If you like modern Filipino art, plan to spend a full day here. There is a massive collection of pieces each one unique, amusing, and/or provocative. The property on which the museum rests is a thing of beauty itself -- set on a gentle slope of gardens and galleria, you can spend the day just sitting back on one of the many outdoor day beds if art is not so much your thing. But if is, you're in for a treat. Make sure to wear very comfy shoes because you'll be walking a lot, and some climbing up and down steps to access the outermost galleries. Overall, a fascinating way to spend the day!
  • This is a museum for artists like really! Sofa and beds are everywhere. You could choose any place you're comfortable there then paint or do whatever you want. My favorite part is the forest installation where you could relax and have your mind in peace UvU I really love the concept of the museum overall. Will surely visit again soon 😊
  • A well-curated collection of indigenous, modern, and contemporary Filipino art. A must-visit for art enthusiasts looking to get a glimpse at local work. You can easily spend several hours there. Only two things diminished my experience. First, I asked to stop sketching within the galleries. Second, most patrons were only there to take photos for their social media and did not respect the artwork (touching paintings, crossing protective ropes, asking viewers to move). But don't let this deter you. Definitely worth the trip to Antipolo!
  • This art gallery exceeded my expectations. Well curated and just awesome.. I was in awe of the vastness of the space. There is a lot of Filipino art. Cheaper too for students with a valid school ID. When I went, it was a super hot day and I wish I had been hydrated well enough before or brought some water. The cafe/restaurant had a good selection of food too. Great for friends and family. Must visit!
  • I went here last January with a friend. It is located inside a subdivision so there is a P15 entrance fee at the guard house. Upon arrival, you would see a small white facade with antique brown doors. Entrance fee to the museum is P200 (with additional discounts for students and senior citizens) they would also give you a map of the museum. After buying the tickets you would need to leave your bags at their bag counter area to avoid damaging the pieces inside the museum. My first impression of the museum was "is this even a museum?" Because for me it was more like a very beautiful mini village in a far a way place and you could imagine yourself just strolling around and spending time lounging on the beds that are scattered around the vicinity. The somehow Greek style architecture combined with creative landscaping. It is truly worth visiting. They have vast collection of paintingd, sculptures and native art. When we visited, Richard Gomez's art works were exhibited in one of its complex. After going around the museum, I remembered a similar open park museum the Park Güell in Barcelona, Spain. They have almost the same concept. But Pinto Museum is more of a homey feel because of its small scale but perfect in someway. Hoping to be able to visit this place again.
