  • Disappointed because we weren't able to get in. They don't stick to their museum hours.
  • Learning Filipino arts and culture
  • the family is impressive in that they seem to be a model family whose life revolves around art. i would say the father is the real artist there as his artworks have vision and some impressive composition. many of their artworks i wouldn’t say have much skill in them but are well cultured (especially the father’s)... the children’s artworks are lesser derivatives but are also interesting as they reflect Filipino life, especially family life and culture. sadly the grandchildren’s artworks don’t have the same feel and are moving towards modernism. 4* for an enriching experience and good visual reprentation of Filipino culture and family life
  • The works of Jose V. Blanco are truly admirable. He has captured the native Filipino scene into the realism of light and darkness. This is the reason why Angono has become the Art Capital. Visit the works of the Master. His genius has been passed through generations of the family.
  • Highly recommended to visit art museum in Angono Rizal 😍
