After unwinding at Luljetta’s Hanging Gardens and Spa and feasting at Vieux Chalet Swiss Restaurant, it was about time to visit Pinto Art Museum which was Edwin and I’s last stop on our anniversary weekend in Antipolo. I felt a separation anxiety the moment I realized I had to leave such a beautiful city ever so soon.
Pinto Art is a museum that unveils a subtle harmony of Philippine contemporary art, nature, cozy interior, and a hint of grecian architecture.
Upon arrival, the front desk clerk will give you a map and ask for the entrance fee worth P150 for a regular ticket, P120 for senior citizens and PWDs, and P75 for children and students. Taking photos is apparently allowed but photo shoots require an additional charge.
It was terribly hot and humid when we arrived which was past 12 in the afternoon so I suggest wearing light clothes to keep you cool. Drink their Lemongrass Iced Tea as well (my fave ever since I tasted one at Vieux Chalet) to stay hydrated. They also have a Bizu Pattiserie at the lower ground in case you get hungry.
Do not fret though as you will get accustomed to the hot weather once you see the collection of impressive artworks.
Beds were scattered all over the place which reminded me to take a breather to further enjoy the natural scenery and admire the beauty of art.
One of my favorite parts of the museum was the room full of huge murals!
We were in a bit of a rush so we only spent about two hours wandering the place. Two hours may be long enough for some but I felt like I could spend an entire day there simply appreciating the tranquility and interpreting the significance behind the artworks. Nonetheless, Pinto Art Museum made our anniversary extra special. 🙂
