My eagerness to travel is what brought me here. If you are living nearby Antipolo and crave to do something new, you do not have to go far for Pinto Art Museum, which is located at Grand Heights, Antipolo City, is a perfect place to saunter. From its humble environment and unique artistry to nature-friendly scenery, most probably you’ll find here what you are looking for.
Clueless of what this museum has to offer, I was so excited to have an adventure in this enchanting and magical place.
I’ve always been waiting for this day to come since the day I learned about Pinto Art Museum. I have always been wanting to visit this place for the longest time after seeing photos of my friends who have already been here. After visiting the Museum of the Filipino People, I have found it very interesting to visit a museum one more time. And yes, my first thought was Pinto Art Museum.
It was such a wonderful experience to have been able to see every artist’s/ craftsman’s piece of work that Pinto Art Museum treasures inside. Pinto Art Museum is a charming combination of indie and contemporary type of art, creative landscaping, and enlightened architecture packed in a 1.2 hectare of land. The scenery here is so relaxing you would desire to revisit again and again.
It was exactly 11:45 AM when Emiko and I arrived in the place. As soon as I saw the entrance to the museum, I was reminded by a Filipino classic house and was fascinated already with the structure of the building. You wouldn’t think that it is a museum for it looks like a house with a white-washed walls and ordinary gate. It is very different from the other museums I’ve been to already.
As soon as we stepped inside, we were surprised at this creepy collections that’re sitting near the main entrance of the building. By the moment I started to survey the place, I loved it instantly and knew that there were a lot of mysteries to discover.
Everything here is so picturesque. It is a great place for prenup photo shoot, actually. Luckily, my friend, Emiko Garcia, happily accompanied me in this adventure. She was forced by me to come with me here. She’s also mesmerized just like me in every piece of work we’re able to see. And thanks to her for being my photographer! Haha.
From aged doorways, windows, and quirky art piece, everything hides a magical story behind it, and reveals something interesting. Inside, you’ll find various art in forms of structure, paintings, installations, furniture, and even landscape.
Of all the museums I have visited, Pinto Art Museum is my favorite. Not because it is located in Antipolo but because of its classic and contemporary displays which I appreciate the most.
I’m not sure if it’s allowed to ride in this metal rocking horse.
The art galleries display a variety of modern and contemporary paintings, sculptures and art installations.

Gallery 6: Art treasures nestled within its walls.
Who would have thought that in an unnoticeable space lies a very soothing, secluded, and relaxing room? Forest Room that is filled with bamboos and little pools with stones. It plays a relaxing music in the background. This is actually the best room of Pinto Art.
Cafe Tanaw: Overlooking the nice scenery of the place.
We were almost exhausted when we landed to The Museum of Indigenous Art, located in the lower gardens and showcases the richness of the Filipino culture.
I really do appreciate arts. I wish I could be a help in promoting this kind of activity to other people who have not yet found their interests. Maybe they’ll be fond of visiting places that mark the history of the Philippines such as museums after reading this blog. How I wish!
I would like to go back here with my friends and I am looking forward to new displays in every gallery.
