Our cousins brought us here on a Sunday! Very nice but lots of steps. Wide variety of Philippine art and outdoor sculptures. Each location has a theme. I felt proud the Philippines has a world class art exhibit like this. They do have a cafe - Cafe Rizal that is popular with the locals. They run out of ice and other food early though. They need to fix their logistics. Also one negative is parking- you have to park on the residential streets and good thing they have parking attendants to guide you. Good for a quiet contemplative day.

Went there for the second time I think. Still love the place! The garden was artistically done. It is still well kept and the entrance fee is affordable! Highly recommendable for art lovers!

We usually visit the museum for Café Rizal's tasty seafood dish/es. I always wish they could serve the orders faster, but given the number of visitors over the weekend (albeit during a semi-lockdown) and probably limited workforce, that's understandable.

The galleries aren't open to the public yet, which is reasonable under the current circumstance, although the entrance fee stays the same (Php250) and seems a bit of a downside to what otherwise sound choice to get away from the city for a few hours of the day.

My cousins and i were here last Saturday and we were surprised that they allow kids inside. Mask must be on at all times (yes, even during picture taking) you can only take it off when in the restaurant. Speaking of their restaurant, food was AMAZING. We love all of it. We ordered basilica and cinco de mayo pizza, then we had seafood aglio olio pasta, Palawan and the famous rizal adobo. Overall experience was great.

The place is really good, there’s a lot to see and every corner is instagrammable. It really is a nice place to visit.

We made a mistake with eating in their restaurant. they forgot our order and we waited for over an hour for just pizza and some slices of cake. Note that we asked several attendants about our order and they all just nodded. Nobody was apologetic and when we asked for a feedback form they didn’t even have one. Food prices are also on the high side.

Museums usually bore me but this one is an exception. It had lots of open spaces, gorgeous gardens teeming with lush flora, pretty seating areas, and then there’s the artwork. Countless of them, scattered indoors and outdoors of the sprawling property. The plentiful works of art are diverse, thought-provoking and sustained my interest. Well worth the 250-Peso entrance fee.

I’m not an art enthusiast but I enjoyed exploring this art museum. It’s a very modern, lively and colorful place to immerse oneself into. So many creative artworks to experience and I’m so happy to have visited it. The name of the museum is the Filipino term for door. The place literally has so many doors! There’s a lot of stairs to climb.

Been living in Antipolo for quite some time now and it was my first time to go here and I was surprised by how big the place was (1.5 hectares) and how beautiful it was inside. I thought the Pinto Art Museum was just an old house that was converted into an art gallery. But not so. It's a destination place by itself. It will probably take you a whole day to go around. Food was really good too! Best Seafood aglio olio I've ever had! Hindi tinipid sa seafood and the garlic was very lightly sauteed in olive oil to give it that nutty scent and flavor. Definitely a must go to place when in Antipolo.

went to Pinto Museum in Antipolo for a day trip. It stands out as the most visited museum in Rizal.

What makes the Museum so unique is that it offers a vision that combines archaeology, history, art history and contemporary Filipino art.

The Open Galleries

A cluster of Mediterranean- inspired villas sprawled inside its 1.3-hectare property owned by Dr. Joven Cuanang houses the museum’s collections. This makes it one of the best places to take amazing photos for Instagram feeds.

This unique setup allows Pinto to showcase objects, an extraordinary treasure trove of art collected since the 1960s that features both permanent and rotating exhibitions.

Upon entering the museum's gate, there is a painting gallery and a souvenir shop. A set of steps splits at a landing, leading to a mini chapel and the landscaped garden.

To the left of the chapel in the middle section of the garden lies a big art gallery that features giant murals such as the "Karnabal" (carnival).

Turning in the front direction to the right of the chapel leads to a wishing well, a cluster of villas with rounded arches and ornate colums. There is a roof deck that allows visitors to take in the sun with a good view of Pinto's landscaped garden and treetops of Antipolo.

The Gardens

The central walkway acts as a visual focal point for Pinto. It gives visual access to the whole Pinto Art Museum garden.

There are intimate outdoor spaces in Pinto Art Museum's open-air design which make it feel more like a destination rather than a big, open space. There are antique white iron beds and chairs along the pathways.

The courtyard functions as an outdoor living room. There were statues plus several simple stone bowl fountains.

The existing large trees around the garden create a temperate climate suitable for shade dwellers. Below and around the trees grow flowering perrenials leading to a lush garden with lots of shade. There are wide plant beds that slide down between low retaining walls. Pathways are paved with sandstone and walls are coated with stucco.

Spending time in Pinto Art Museum galleries is a breathtaking experience indeed!
