Pinto Art Museum: World Class Art Gallery That's Proudly Filipino

Pinto Art Museum, Antipolo

The Pinto Art Museum in San Roque, Antipolo, Rizal, Philippines surprisingly offers one ineffable cultural experience comparable to world class international museums. Now, if a foreigner, traveller, or a filipino is visiting Metro Manila, one place that should be included in their schedule is to see the Trip Advisor Center for Excellence approved Pinto Art Museum. The P.A.M. journey and destination are Philippine highlights that should be experienced, enjoyed, and learned from.

Located inside the unassuming Grand Heights Subdivision, the Pinto Art Museum’s façade is reminiscent of a European local house that’s Greek and Lisboa inspired – simplistic yet striking. In fact, nothing much going on with the details of the entrance, if you exclude the long queue of people. You wouldn’t have guessed that it’s a special place of contemporary art,  unique architecture, and creative landscaping.

Once inside, I can only hope that the artistic gallery experience here that’s unique among other Filipino museums and galleries could be realized and reflected upon by the locals. It’s quite extraordinary! The art scene ensnared with the architecture and the all-encompassing ambiance is outstanding. For the very first time, I am keen on sharing this to the rest of the world that ‘hey, there’s one world-class museum’ in Metro Manila and no it’s no longer just in Intramuros.

Seeing six galleries, featuring visual arts of different materials, from eccentric photos, sculptures, scattered antique white bed frames, indigenous arts, local cafes, souvenir items, and a nice overlooking view of the nearby city. Visit here during weekdays to make you enjoy the place all to yourselves!

The Pinto Art Museum is one of the best museums in the Philippine capital that can overwhelm your culture cravings and make you appreciate the Philippines even more.
