Happy Hearts & Lots of Art at Pinto Art Museum
If you love art as much I do, then this is definitely the place to go. I can honestly say it's every artist's little piece of heaven to have this kind of gallery. Not so far from the city but also have a sight of an amazing scenery all at the same time. But the best thing is that it's not two hours away from Manila's chaos. Though finding it is quiet a challenge if you're not familiar with the streets of Rizal, Antipolo. So I suggest you download the app Waze or Google Maps before leaving.
So I've been dying to go to this museum since I see it a lot on Instagram, which Im sure you guys have too. So me and my boyfriend, Miggy decided to set a date to go there. It's more a of whole day thing if you really want to appreciate the art. Pinto Art Museum has well-over 300 artworks.
The entrance fee is 150 Php but if you have a student's ID you can get it for 75Php. The manager of the place is very friendly and gave us little tour plus they sell drinks too (Ice tea & Buko juice) which were both refereshing especially after strolling around since the place is a 1.2 hectars property.
You can’t go wrong with an afternoon filled with art appreciation. Right?
The simplicity of their entrance is far way beyond of what's inside. It's where the saying goes "but wait there's more". Even if I was already sold by the entrance already. I won't lie about it.
I can honestly say people can spend hours and hours exploring the galleries of this museum taking countless breaks for photo-ops especially for instagrammers or people who are photography enthusiast. What I love about this museum the most is Greek looking white walls, big wide spaces, massive artworks and beautiful botanic gardens. We stayed in Pinto Art museum for almost 4 hours (no kidding) but honestly, once you start walking around and appreciating all the art, you wouldn't really be able to mind the time. I'm also proud to share to you all that majority of the art works displayed there are from local artists.
If I had an afternoon to spare, I would definitely come back and recommend it to anyone who is in need of a visual artistic treat.
My only regret isthat we should've stayed till sunset because a lot of people said it was definitly a sight you will never forget.
