Why Pinto Art Museum?
One of the places that people recommend to visit in Antipolo is the Pinto Art Museum. I was in a search for places to visit because a Balikbayan friend would like to visit Antipolo in particular. We have removed Hinulugang Taktak in the list because of the negative reviews. I think there is something to look forward to in this place because it quickly became popular with adults and youngsters from different areas, especially those who have an interest in arts. I have visited one popular tourist spots in Antipolo before, which is the Crescent Moon Cafe, and it was a fantastic experience.
The weird thing is that I am from Antipolo City, but I didn’t have the chance to squeeze some time to drop by and see for myself if the place is worth the praises. Luckily, I was able to find time last week, and I would like to share with you some of the creative work of arts that caught my attention.
You have to pay the corresponding fees upon entering the place.

What To See In Pinto Art Museum
I asked my companions to stop by the pool in the garden, which was sooooo relaxing. I could’ve stayed longer if not for the senior citizens I’m with that time. This spot makes you temporarily forget all your troubles. There are garden chairs in the area where you can sit and savor the beauty of nature.
Interesting Works of Arts
Because we had minimal time, we decided to get inside the Santorini-inspired white structures and look at the galleries. Unfortunately, videos are not allowed, so that I couldn’t create a vlog about it. Below are photos of the art pieces which are interesting for me.
I wasn’t able to organize the photos because we were in a hurry and we didn’t visit the galleries according to number. After visiting galleries 1 and 2, we jumped to 5 and I think 4 and there were places that we missed. We were not able to chill at the cafe in between the walks or after. I guess, we just have to come back some other time to try their food and drinks. I suggest that if you will visit the museum, take the time to appreciate everything because you will not enjoy at all if you are in a hurry.
Even if my short visit isn’t perfect, I am glad that I had the chance to feast my eyes on those creative works. Each masterpiece has a story to tell, and I think your half-day in the museum would be enough for you to appreciate the artworks and nature. What I missed to do was to have a short pictorial since there are many instagrammable spots there.
So, what are you waiting for? It’s time for you to check out Pinto Art Museum. Head to one of the tourist spots in Antipolo now!
