I have lived in Ortigas for over 5 years now the neighboring and have not explored Rizal even though it is just 30 minutes to an hour from my place.

I decided to explore restaurants and instagrammable places to visit. I had to bring with me some ex-officemates that live in Antipolo to take me around. Libre tour guide.

First stop was Pinto Art Museum. I initially thought that PHP200 entrance fee was overpriced but when I got to explore the entire place, sulit na sulit. The place is very relaxing and full of art. It’s not a typical museum where you just get to see masterpieces of artists. This place was definitely pure art.

The place has a cafe inside too that serves good food. Try the Aglio Olio and Mango Cheesecake.

I’ll let the photos do the talking

I had an Antipolo escapade last Tuesday and this was my 1st stop.

Before going here, me and Felix had plan on what time and where will be our point of origin since we will be on a commute mode. This has been our itinerary. You can adjust your time of departure, as I willbjust indicate the places (w/o time intervals).

128678Main point of Origin is at Shaw Blvd. in Mandaluyong City

128205ride a Van-UV Express bound to Antipolo City (disembark on the UV Terminal in Antipolo). Travel time was 45mins.
128184 php50.00 per head
128205From the UV terminal, there are Tricycle drivers that will ask you where are you heading.. Just tell them you're going to Pinto Art Museum. Travel time was 5-10 mins.
128184 php50.00 for 2 pax (or for the whole tricycle rental at least.)

⛔that was it. The tricycle driver will drop you off at the front gate of the museum. It was an easy peasy travel. As in walang ligaw 128521

🏛️Entrance fee is php200.00-Adult
Php180.00-Senior Citizen or PWD
Php100.00-Student w/ school ID
FREE - 3yrs. Old and below
The cashier will give your tickets and a leaflet which you can read the rules and policies of the museum.

‼️guards have to check your bags on the entrance. Some said that you have to wear you OOTD before entering the museum. As to our case, it seems that I could change outfit if I want to. Kasi hindi naman nag remind yung guard sa amin. But I don't mind changing my outfit. Hehe

QUICK NOTE. lot area: 1.3 HECTARES 128562

No food or drinks are allowed to be brought inside the premises. Beshy, mainit yung panahon, mainit din sa ibang part ng museum. 1.3 Hectares yung gagalaan mo. Nakakauhaw at gutom. Lol🤣🤤

There are 6 Art Galleries inside. Each gallery showcases different arts, sculptures and the like.

The 2nd picture I posted was a mini chapel. It was unusual inside as it has replicas of Saints which were locked up. 128550

Third photo was where Appo Whang-Od the famous mambabatok's collection was. There was a tattoo shop but there wasn't a tattooist, I believe that her grandchild was the tattooist here. It is called the Muesum of the Indigenous Art

Fourth photo was a peacock showing off his beautiful shiny feathers 128525

Fifth was a painting entitled "The Circle of Game" by Elmer Borlongan painted with Oil on Canvas. This was really beautiful.

Sixth photo was a painting by Joy Mallari which was entitled "Mawalang Galang Na Po"

7th photo was the amphitheatre which is where we stayed for 3 minutes and just enjoyed the view. Ang presko kasi sa spot na to and super ganda ng view.

8th photo was the well known "Pieta 2" by Joven Mamsit

9th was a metal sculpture of a pregnant woman nearing its date of delivery. Note: notice what's inside her belly. 12811810084

10th photo.. What can you notice on the aligator looking shoes? I was really amazed that this was a shoe box and the" evolution of man" that was slanted wasn't really that. It was a sequence of a man tying his shoe lace. 128518 thanks to my dad for interpreting it to me when I handed him my phone. Yes, I'm weak on abstract. Lol

There so many casitas, beds, and chairs inside the premise. Silence is a must, kaya medyo nakakaantok lalo pag nakaupo na kayo dun sa mga beds. Hahaha

The Mindanao Collection was gorgeous.

There is a Cafe inside the premise. It was Cafe Rizal. We didn't tried anything here coz it was really pricey. Hehe

All in all.. The place was well maintained, clean, cozy, very green, and it was really lovely.

We roamed around the place for 4 hours. And it was really amazing! Kulang yung 10 photos to showcase everything here. Hehe 128517

Last Holy Week we supposed to go to La Union but the room at certain resort wasn't available so we decided to just roam around the Metro.

Sunday after fellowship we had lunch at Romeo's Steak House in Antipolo and proceeded to Pinto Art Museum after.

The place is quite big and has very strict rules eg. bringing of back pack, it is not allowed even if its too small, anyway there's a luggage counter where you can leave the bag. Kinda hustle lang coz ang laman lang ng backpack ko ay wallet at cellphone so I need to hand-carry it dahil wala akong pockets. There's a paper with list of their rules plus a map din so that you can maximize your stay.

Each room has different theme, it depends on how it was made, materials etc. There are also paintings for sale located near the entrace.

You are not allowed to bring in foods and drinks but there's a restaurant naman inside where you can dine and prices are competitive. Comfort rooms are located anywhere din and its clean.

If you just want to think or be out in the Metro for awhile this place is a good escape. If you're artistic, you'll definitely love it.

P.S.
Entrance fee:
200 adult
100 student
Kids 3 ft below is free.

This gallery is famed for its post-worthy architecture and collection of contemporary art. Pintò has taken over every social media feed since it opened doors to the public.

It was never planned but, not a year passed without a visit to Pinto ever since my birthday in 2014. It gets better annually with its expansion and addition of significant art pieces. The location is commute-friendly from any point of Manila. You can take any Antipolo bound FX or jeepney. Drop-off point will be at the Tricycle station, just mention that you are heading to Pinto. Approximate travel time from Katipunan area is around 40min.

There is an entrance fee of Php200 per head including the tour of about 8 galleries surrounded by different garden landscape. The upper deck gives a scenic view of the the sun setting down.

The Pintò Cafe near the Chapel serves refreshment and snack options. Tried the Pizza and it was good. There’s a need to improve the ventilation, it gets humid past lunch time. Wear comfortable walking shoes during your visit.

My friends and I have been seeing tons of posts on social media before this visit and personally I thought that if Pinto Art Museum looked that good in photos, it would definitely look better in person! Thus, this super random trip came to be and it was well worth it.

Pinto Art Museum is located in Antipolo. It took us around an hour’s drive to get here and it wasn’t hard to find at all (more because we used Waze and the directions we got were really accurate). A two hundred peso fee is charged per person and that allows you to go around the whole museum which is made up of a number of areas.

It was easy to appreciate all the artwork that they house because no two pieces were the same or similar - everything was so different and the way they arranged things seemed effortless. There was no need for a theme for each room; the randomness of it all definitely added to the museum’s charm.

As we were going around we were lucky enough to run into one of the museum’s curators. He kindly showed us around and explained the meaning behind some of the artworks - this definitely made the experience even better so if any of the museum’s curators, guides or staff members ask if you would like a tour, please accept their offer!

Whether you’re into paintings, sculptures, interiors or whatever else, Pinto Art Museum is a feast for the eyes. This place is always worth a visit. Bring your camera and put on a pretty outfit for all of those nice photos you’ll be able to take :)

Instead of having a party, I celebrated my birthday with best friends by going to Pinto Art Museum. It is located in Antipolo, just a few hours away from Manila. We rode the fx in front of Megamall then a trycicle going to the place. The trick is to go there in the morning during weekdays so it's less traffic. Wear comfortable shoes since it is a 1.2 hectare property and you will be spending an entire day walking. Make sure to have a full battery and a powerbank just in case. For just 200 pesos, you will get to be inspired with paintings, sculptures and interiors. The place is beautiful and every angle is instagram worthy. It is great for pre-nup and other photoshoots. Don't wear white though since the walls are painted white. There are a lot of art galleries and installations which spread out into six buildings. Every building is unique and interesting. They have 2 restaurants in case you are hungry and thirsty in between snaps. Being a fan of art and museums, I definitely enjoyed going to this place.

Happy to visit this museum again last Sunday after about 2 years! 128525

But, let me start with things I didn't like during my last visit:
- IT IS SO CROWDED NOW.
- People must stop leaning on and touching SOME artworks for photos! Seriously, "Do not touch the artworks" has been posted everywhere and I still see some people leaning dramatically on some framed artworks for photos! My goodness. 🙄 lol why are guys doing that

Sorry, I need to chill now. 128540

Pinto Art Museum is still a beautiful place. Many things have changed now though. I guess the rates became high too, but I think it's worth it. 128522 Walking through the gallery halls, I've noticed some artworks from Art Fair PH 2015 are now displayed there. 128147 There are two cafe/restaurants inside too, before it was only one. We didn't dine because almost all the tables were occupied.

I've also noticed there is now an "erotic gallery". Lol 2 years ago I believe they didn't have that. There was a signage that says close the door since some artworks may not be suitable for children. 128539128069128527128089128166 There's also a new off limits area/hall. I think it's going to be an art school or art center? Idk. 128584

I had fun still. Hmmm...

I know I'm no art connoisseur but to be honest, it was not the artworks displayed here that impressed me most but more the architecture and landscape. The interesting displays scattered all over the grounds made the walk around the vast lot more exciting and enjoyable.
The entire collection isn't all that bad. My favorite was Forest by Antonio Leano. It's an art installation of a dark indoor bamboo forest with small ponds and scattered leaves together with the perfect accompanying sound effects. It was truly a feast for the senses.
Gallery 6, in my opinion, had the best collection and the most aesthetically pleasing structure with it's high ceilings and large open space.
Whilst the place is truly instagrammable, I think it's sad that people flock here not to appreciate art but more to serve as a backdrop for their Facebook and Instagram posts so expect a throng of people in their best OOTD equipped with their selfie sticks, camera phones, and their instagram worthy poses all over the grounds.
But overall, it was a great experience. The place was nice. Their staff was nice. Their cafes are also cute but a bit pricey. Skip the truffle fries from Cafe Rizal but their shakes are really refreshing especially after a tiring walk across the grounds.
I would definitely recommend this place to others especially my balik-bayan friends and relatives. Although entrance is quite pricey at P200 but students with valid IDs get a P100 student's discount. There is also a P20 entrance fee to the subdivision plus there are neighborhood kids who hounds you asking for loose change in exchange for looking after your car. Be warned: parking can be difficult here. It can also be hot and humid. The galleries aren't air-conditioned so bring a fan, towel, and water. Wear comfy clothes and shoes plus sunblock, a cap, and shades so you are comfy plus OOTD ready. 128522

I am excited to visit this place. Just read a few days before that the grandson of the person who tattooed whang od is here! I already have a tattoo from Elyang and Whang Od and I'm thinking of getting another native tattoo from this young guy at Pinto! Aside from the fact that he's at Pinto, I am also intrigued by the place. Based from my research, Pinto Museum really looks like a good art gallery place. It looks like some old mexican hacienda.

I went here with a friend and arrived before lunchtime. We were still full that time so we decided to check the place and the artworks first. We paid P200 for the entrance. P100 for students and P180 senior/PWD.

I was amazed that the place is bigger than I expected. There are lots of different artworks from different local artists. There are different themes, different art forms in each room or gallery. From paintings to sculptures, potteries, mosaics, dioramas, digital arts, murals etc. the place itself is even an artwork!! You can even do a photoshoot here. Structures or the galleries at Pinto are instagram worthy. The place is really big. I thought the gallery would just be in the same building but you actually need a map for this if you want to see everything and if you don't wanna get lost. A couple of hours is not enough. I thought we would be able to leave early but we left the place at already 5ish

Unfortunately, the native tattoo artist got sick and wasn't available that time. We were told that he is just staying at Pinto. Now, how cool is that? You also need to call ahead of time to make a reservation if you want to have yourself inked

Touring Pinto at midday can be so dehydrating coz the place is big. There are open spaces too and it was humid the day we went. So make sure that you have a bottle of water with you or anythin that will keep you hydrated. There are 2 or 3 cafes inside Pinto so you won't get hungry while checking the whole place. Im not sure if the one nearest to the entrance or beside the souvenir shop is a cafe too. We ate at one of their cafes outdoor at around 3pm. It's supposed to be hot but because of the trees surrounding it and birds chirping, it gives the place a relaxing and breezy feel. Love their idea of combining art, nature and photography! This is the best museum I've been to so far.

Pinto Art Museum opens from Tue-Sun, 9am to 6pm.

*I want to add more photos but I can only upload 10 128514

We arrived at Pinto Art Museum thirty minutes before its door will open to the public (9:00AM opening time). There's a Php200.00 entrance fee before you can enter the premises. If your a student, just present an ID (student) for a 50% discount - that's Php100.00 per student. If your a Senior Citizen / Person with Disability, just present an ID for 20% discount.

Pinto Art Museum is a 1.3 hectares museum. It is located in Antipolo Rizal. And it composed of several galleries, I think 6 galleries... as provided in their map. Yes, they will provide you a map (keep it, trust me! You will need that map) because it's huge. Inside, I was fascinated with the beauty of the white wall of each houses/ galleries and several trees inside the premises of the museum. Pinto Art Museum is really an instagram worthy museum, good for photo ops and pre-nup photo shoot, be sure you have a fully loaded battery of your mobile-cam/ camera. 128247

At first we were too excited to see the man made arts inside the museum but as the time goes and the sun rose up, you will need to take slow in a bit. Gladly, there's a restaurant inside the museum where we can chill for a while. It's a little bit pricey though! 128521

I really have a good time touring Pinto Art Museum. Just be sure to come early because it can get crowded, especially on weekends. By the way, don't forget to bring drinking water, hanky/face tissue and extra shirt... "nakakapagod!" Promise! 128540

Oh hello again looloo! 128514
Posting a review after God knows how long (because one person wouldn't stop bugging me about not being supportive enough to actually use the app).

Putting that aside, here's my first review for the month and hopefully not the last for the year. 128514

What should have been a day hike at Mt. Ulap turned into a day at the Pinto Art Museum, all because our hike organizer was three hours late for the said meet-up time. 128561

Headed out to Pinto at around 11 in the morning on a holiday. And the place was packed - mostly by students on a field trip. Entrance costs 200 for adults.

They gave us a map of the place. So, basically, you're left on your own to navigate the place. It isn't the Louvre so you won't get lost 128539

While I could say a LOT of great things about the art (and the impressive skills of a certain painter by the name of Pamela Yan Santos), the people in the museum and their behavior left a bad taste in my mouth.

First off, it's a museum. Sure taking photos is allowed but can't people stop for just a few minutes and appreciate the art around them.

Second, rules are meant to be followed. If the sign says don't touch the paintings, then DON'T TOUCH THE FREAKING PAINTING. 🙄128514 If it's just for the sake of a new profile picture, by all means take a photo with the sculpture or the painting, but don't touch it! Our hands contain harmful oils that may corrode the surface of oil or acrylic paintings. If you want future generations to see the paintings in the museum, then do your part in preserving the pieces - by again, NOT TOUCHING THE PAINTINGS! Pleassseeeee. 128554

Third, this is where museum guards or guides would have been helpful. Aside from reminding people not to touch the paintings and call them out for rowdy behavior, they could have educated visitors about the paintings. There was one particular painting in gallery 2 which i found completely disorienting. Unlike the other pieces in the gallery where an explanation of the art was placed beside it, this one didn't have one. 🙃128514

All in all, a pretty good place to visit especially if you're a huge art geek/freak like me. My advice, head out to the museum on a regular work day - file for a leave! Haha! That way you won't have to deal with a huge crowd. 128514

From Starbucks near Antipopo Church, I approached a tricycle driver and asked him to bring me to Pinto Art Museum. I know it’s a bit too expensive to ride a trike alone because I need to pay the fare alone. But I don’t have a choice.

As I enter the vicinity, all the expectations I had were brought up to me by my brain. This museum should not disappoint me. I’ve heard a lot of good reviews and saw stunning photos showing how picturesque this place is. I registered first, paid Php100 as a student, and the receptionist handed me a paper which has the map and the rules of the museum.

When I saw the map, I am officially convinced that this will be a series of upstairs, downstairs, and walks. They have a total of eight galleries, including the Pinto Art Gallery and the Museum of Indigenous Art.

I surrendered my bag first. The only thing I have is the map, my phone, and my hanky.

When I saw the exterior of the Pinto Art Gallery, my expectations fused together, leaving me with nothing but a numbing pain and set of questions of what, why, and how. I expected a clear white wall and castle-y beauty of the exterior; I was welcomed with dead white walls and “so, eto pala yun.”

But behind those, I still admire it. It may not be 100% pleasing to the eyes, but it’s really beautiful when you snap a photo of it. Also, what counts is the art that it houses. I was easily lost, I almost get to the point that I came to the part where there are signage of private property.

I admired every work of art, wishing I had the talented and skilled hands to create such beautiful things. Walking alone gave me peace of mind knowing I can go anywhere I want to be without someone taking authority of where should I go next, nobody to tell me, “take a picture of me here”. I also didn’t take a lot of pictures, I’m afraid my phone will die in the middle of my tour. I only took some shots where there are less people in the area. I don’t like to be a photobomber in their photos.

It took me almost two hours to roam around the museum even though most reviewers said they consumed 3-4 hours in doing so. I would have actually finished the tour much shorter if I don’t need to find some other way out. There are a lot of people taking pictures almost everywhere. It’s hard to walk, or to go down the stairs, or to transfer to other galleries. I really don’t want to mess with them but it’s really hard to find alternative routes to go to other galleries. One time, I needed to sit on the couch and stare blankly at the sky because I’m waiting for a certain group to finish taking their shot. But at least I relaxed my legs a bit.

I see happy people everywhere. I hope everyone appreciated how beautiful the works are.

When I finally find my way out, I knew it’s time to say goodbye and thanks to the hours of walking in a garden surrounded with serenity and silence.

I surrendered my tag and got my bag. Rode a tricycle to bring me back to the church for my next destination.

Pinto Art Museum is an art haven that houses various kinds of artwork that convey different messages and stories. Pinto means ‘door’ in English. And this place consists of gallery houses with doors bringing you to a different world of imagination. Located in the heart of Rizal province, Antipolo City, this place is very accessible and is perfect for fun bonding activity.

If you ask me, I am not an absolute fan of arts and paintings. But once you get here, you will be amazed and stunned at how these arts depict something strong. Of course, for photo enthusiasts, this place is 'instagrammable' in every corner. So make sure you get the nicest angle.

Tips:

Bring face towel if you sweat frequently. This place is huge, you won't even finish the whole area in half day.

Go here early, most people go here after lunch or late afternoon. It is going to be a challenge to get empty space and avoid photobombers if the crowd is huge.

Entrance fee as of September 2016:
200 - Regular
180 - Senior Citizen with ID
100 - Student with ID
