There are times that you are just lazy to go somewhere or do something outside. We just want to stay in our bed and sleep all day. Most of us end up contemplating our lives wondering if all these years, am I doing the right thing? Am I going the right path? Then you realize, it’s not the right time to question your decisions in life. Instead, you go out and continue living your life the way you want it to be. So, I thought of doing something that is light but fun and inspiring and invited my friends to visit Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo City.

Pinto Art Museum

Pinto Art Museum

This establishment 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.

Once you get inside the premise, the garden area will welcome you with an ambiance of outdoor relaxation. The cool breeze just makes you comfortable sitting on the bed and foam bench while taking photos. Also, it’s actually a great place for a photoshoot for prenup or theme-specific events. You feel like every corner is just right for any angle or photo shoot.

Aside from that, there are also interesting figures and sculptures scattered around the area. Some of them are hidden and hard to notice. So, try to enjoy locating each of them.

Gallery Houses

Pinto, as the name implies, is a door that will lead you to several houses that feature different kinds of art. Let’s take a peak on each of the houses and enjoy artworks.

Pinto Art Museum

The first gallery house gives you an abstract art and some graphics that you may want to interpret yourself to know what the message they convey.

There’s just too much to explore in this gallery. So, you have to make sure to check every corner because there are some hidden or unnoticeable arts that you could miss. Admittedly, there are those I wasn’t able to capture because of being preoccupied with fascination.

Next Stop

The next gallery house has a very wide canvas painting and a collection of other colorful artworks. One of the nicest place to get some instagrammable shots.

The Wire Art

Going to the next gallery house, we saw this fantastic wire art. The complex and striking quality of art, looking at it will just make you speechless filled with awe.

The New Wing

Pinto Art Museum

This is their newest gallery house which offers another set of colorful artworks. It has a second floor so you can take a picture from above to get another view and nice angle. And this is my personal favorite. I imagined this as my personal meditating space. I’d make something like this if I had a chance.

The Novelty Arts

The next one features different stuff of today’s generation. Things that relate to younger ages and the unusual.

This is getting too long already. But if you think I’ve covered everything, you are wrong. It will take you a half day probably to see each in every corner. But for now, I am almost done. It is tiring but fun.

The Backyard

There’s still a lot to see if you explore outside. The backyard is a nice place to get a fresh air after you’ve done visiting the gallery houses. You can also check out their restaurant inside if you are feeling hungry. We didn’t try, though. We maximized our time in exploring the area and taking more pictures before we leave.

    I find it really interesting on how modern the designs are. Museums never seemed to fail to amaze me. I’ve never yet to visit this place but it has been on my list. I’ve seen a lot of post about Pinto Art Museum, and I think it’s best to visit this place soon. Your photos are awesome. You made it a point to see what we could see, virtually walk us through the place. Thank you

    The place is really huge with a number of cool spots to take Instagramable photos. The atmosphere looks laid back too. It’s beautiful, affordable and the best thing is, it’s near Manila. Surely, it’s the your best art experience ever. I hope more and more Filipinos will visit a museum.

    • Andi

      I couldn’t agree more. I myself is not really a fan of arts but I am starting to appreciate those when I get here.

  4. Jimmy and Tina

    You have a lot of great photos of the Art museum. It would be so hard not to want to curl up and take a nap in the crisp white bed under the sun ๐Ÿ™‚ Great article!

    • Andi

      Thank you J&T ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Gelyka

    I haven’t been to Pinto Art Museum though I have read a lot of good reviews about this place. But really, you’re photos are telling me it’s time to go there! Will see if I can add this to my “places to visit” list before the years ends.

    • Andi

      Me too! I heard and read a lot of positive stuff and it’s 4 km away from me. Indeed, all worth it. And i believe you’ll be amazed too, it’s time for you to visit. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Thelittlelai: Beyond limits

    I haven’t been to a lot of museum yet, especially a museum like this that houses a lot of beautiful paintings. I always adore people who can execute this kind of art, maybe because I really don’t have talent on this. Anyway, I actually like how you write as you are giving justice to what your eyes have seen.

  9. Louiela

    I wish to enter that door as well…:) I didn’t know that we have museums like this in Philippines. Looking at the photos made me feel walking around the museum as well…

    • Andi

      The magical door! ๐Ÿ™‚ This museum has been here for more than 10 years. But it became popular recently due to other bloggers who feature this wonderful craftsmanship near the metro.

  10. Cai domi i

    One of my most favorite museums here in the Philippines. I love the vibes and the outdoor arts. I noticed some new paintings or maybe I just didn’t see it last year. Is it stull hot in the area? I wonder why, even if its surrounded by trees. Its so hot in that museum. I also noticed an increase in entrance too. You got nice photos here ๐Ÿ™‚ I still love the outdoor crafts!

    • Andi

      It is hot but tolerable. I only sweat when I am outside under the sun enduring the heat while you do photo-shoot. Nevertheless, it is all worth it. ๐Ÿ™‚
