Pinto Art Museum: Art | Beauty | Friendship
Together with my friends we went to Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo. Pinto is a Filipino word for door, as you enter each gallery you are presented with beauty through art. The museum features paintings, sculptures and art installations. They also have a section for Philippine tribal or indigenous art.
It was a hot summer day but going around the compound was enjoyable. A map of the entire 1.2 hectare compound is available at the entrance, I’m not sure if they offer guided tours. The place would be good for photo shoots and weddings. There is also café and offers delicious food, a little pricey but the service and taste is really good.
Pinto Art Museum does not just offer galleries of art works but you can also relax in their outdoor spaces. Visiting an art gallery is not only a way to appreciate art but also to reflect and think or not to think at all. It was a humid day, it would be nice to come back on a much cooler weather.
How to get there to Pinto Art Museum:
Address: 1 Sierra Madre Street, Grand Heights, Antipolo City, Philippines.
We just used waze/GPS for the direction, but if you are commuting you can take a jeepney bound for Antipolo and get off at Ynares Center. From there, take a tricycle from there inform that driver that you are going to Pinto Art Museum. Provide them with the address just in case they are not familiar with the location of the museum.
