Pinto Art Museum, Antipolo City

4.4
#1 of 12 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.

    A great place to go around. Be prepared as we went in the middle of summer and it was incredibly hot! There isn't much shade as it is more of a complex of buildings, so maybe it wouldn't be a good rai...  more »

    Food was good but serving portion is not commensurate for the price. The male cashier sounded like a robot in greeting guests, giving flyers, tickets and change. The old, female cashier wasn't accommodating in issuing an official receipt when their museum ticket does not say "this serves as an official receipt". They do not escort out noisy groups in the museum. The place needs to be cleaned and organized more. Ticket price is reasonable. There are a lot of artworks to see and enjoy not to mention the beauty of mother nature. There are sections in the museum, which make you feel as though you are in a different country because of the architecture. A visit here is a good way to escape the city.

    Great art pieces can be seen everywhere. Been here for more than 3 times and the place never fails to amaze me. Brought my grandmother here and even she loved it! Good place to photograph. The ambience is very peaceful but the food on the restaurant is a bit pricey.

    You'll need a whole day just to roam and appreciate everything on your own. Want a quicker tour? Get a guide so you'll have the inside scoop on the little details of the exhibits, the place itself, and the people who have their artworks on display. One thing I dislike about the place is that you're not allowed to change clothes. I'm a sweaty type of person and since this is on a mountain slope with numerous stairs that go up and down, sweating it out is really a bummer. Also, if you plan to eat at the restaurant, order in advance. See and appreciate some exhibits nearby and then come back for your food. it takes a good 20 minutes before food gets served.

    The contemporary artworks pique guests' interests. You get a treat of wild colors, varied techniques, and original ideas. Art galleries are housed individually. In between galleries, you walk through hilly, lush gardens with relaxing-looking four-poster steel beds covered with white linen that serve as sofas. The museum isn't air-conditioned. On a nice cool day which is frequent on medium-altitude Antipolo, the museum is perfect with cool breeze peacefully blowing throughout the galleries' open windows.

    Humidity aside, the place is good and has a lot of open air galleries. You'd need a few hours, a large bottle of water or an umbrella and a good camera that can take shots in low light for this gallery. It's a bit out of the way but it's worth it.
