Pinto Art Museum: An Immersion of Art and Nature

April 9, 2017


I always wanted to go to Pinto Art Museum ever since the time I saw this blog that features the place. In addition, I have few friends who went there and fall in love with the place right away. However, these photos and blogs did little in preparing me for such a wonderful place. 

I developed this love for museums back in 2016 when I first visited Ben Cab Museum in Benguet. I am not claiming to be a lover of art but since then, I appreciate them very much. Pinto Art, being located in a very accessible place, is such a blessing.

Finally, last March 26 of this year, I went to the most talked museum around the city and until now, I am still in awe. I didn't expect the place to be that beautiful. Pinto Art found a really wonderful way on how to showcase art.

Before going to the museum, I was imagining what pose and in what angle I am going to have with the "photogenic staircase." I know, I know, you can laugh at me. Haha. But then, I settled with this photo instead. Pinto Art knows how to give a warm welcome. 



Pinto Art is home of beautiful flowers and birds as well.



To be honest, I did not take note of the names or numbers of the galleries. I was too stunned to notice them all. So shall we go inside, then?

This gallery happens to be my favorite and I can't even point out why. The gallery name remains a mystery to me. Maybe I should go back and find it out.





Another gallery features more modern artwork than the other. 








Another reason why I love Pinto Art Museum is that your eyes will be feed not only by the artwork but also by the whole place itself. My love for vintage was pleased by Pinto Art. In addition, my addiction to sunbeams and shadows intensified. All in all, Pinto Art Museum made me crazily, madly, deeply in love with it. 







Please excuse my face for I also enjoyed having photographed with the place. However, finding the right angle and just enough light aren't my forte so these are the finished product.




Here are some tips that you might want to see before you explore every corner of the museum:
  1. Bring water. If you are planning to visit Pinto Art in daytime, going from gallery to gallery can drain your energy especially when the weather is too dry and the sun is too high. When hunger strikes, do not worry because there are restaurants in the vicinity.
  2. Apply sunscreen. Enjoying Pinto Art Museum is enjoying its open spaces. You can't just hide from the sun if you want to enjoy every corner of the place. 
  3. Get your camera ready. Taking photographs of the place and artwork is not prohibited and believe me, as long as you set foot on that very place, all you want to do is capture them in a photo. However, it is good to put down your camera once in a while to appreciate art through your own eyes and not through lenses.
  4. Use the map. Upon registration, you will be given a map of the place so you can explore every corner of the gallery. Use it! I can't believe I almost missed my favorite gallery because I decided not to use the map. 
  5. Avoid bringing backpack. Bringing backpack is prohibited. To lessen the hassle, bring smaller bags.
Pinto Art Museum is located in 1 Sierra Madre St., Grand Heights Road, Antipolo City. To visit the place, you need to pay for a minimal fee of 200 pesos and only 100 pesos for students. It is open from Tuesday through Sunday, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

I am still having this Pinto Art hang over. I must go back!

Have you been to Pinto Art Museum? How was it? If not, are you planning to go? What do you want to know about the place? Shoot it!

All the love,

Xeph.

    1. It really is, Tina. My photos did not give the whole place a single justice. Actually, you can bring a backpack and leave them in a certain room but that will be hassle, right? So to lessen the hassle, bring small bag instead.

  7. This museum is soo minimalistic and I'm loving it. Php200.00 won't hurt your budget if you're into arts and all these kinds of stuff. Are there also any museums in Antipolo city other than this? :)

    1. Just to add, it is really worth it investing in this kind of place and experience, right? To be honest, I am not aware if there are still other museums in Antipolo other than Pinto Art but there is as exciting as this in Marikina - Book Museum.

  29. I've been there before and I didn't get to enjoy it as much as I expected. Maybe art really isn't for me? Haha I visit museums, yet because sometimes I see something really interesting. I do appreciate art, but maybe not really that deep? Actually, I enjoyed the whole place itself! I think that's enough for me to visit and the arts are just a bonus. I even told myself, this is surely have for artists because everything is already in here, I think!

    1. Good thing, Pinto Art does not only feature artwork on canvas but the beauty of building and nature as well. I agree with you that the artwork are bonus but I know that for some who really is an art lover, it is the place that is a bonus.

  30. I love your photos! I was able to visit this museum few years back. I liked it. The place was huge and there were a lot of art pieces. I agree, the place can really be hot so be sure to bring water, lots of water.
