“Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.”
― Chuck Klosterman,
Just when you thought there are no more things you can enjoy, life will offer you something beautiful — not only for your eyes, but most of all for your soul.
Somewhere in the heart of Antipolo lies a hidden treasure, art enthusiasts and nature lover can surely love and enjoy — The Pinto Art Museum.
Located at 1 Sierra Madre St., Grand Heights, Antipolo City, this 1.3-hectare property features more than 300 modern paintings, art installations, and sculptures.
This art haven not offers only contemporary and modern arts but also showcases beautiful surrounding which is good for nature and photography lovers.
Actually, I’ve visited this museum twice (first, with my bestfriend and the second is with my special someone) and it didn’t failed to amaze me. I just so love the relaxing scenery and how this, though huge and tiring to walk in, can make you feel so calm and comfortable. If you want to escape the busy and noisy city and need some quiet time and place to have some fun, you should go for it.
We’ve also tried dining in their own Cafe Tan-Aw by Peppermill (but I think the cafe is now called Pinto Café) and the food is really good and delicious. Though it’s a bit costly, their food servings can still make you full.
Pinto Art museum is open every Tuesday to Sunday, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Entrance fee is Php180 for regular ticket. While it costs Php150 for senior citizens and PWD with valid IDs and Php100 for children and students with proper school IDs.
