Beautiful Art Gallery Near Manila

Pinto Art Museum

Posted by Jennilyn Ramer on March 7, 2017

Pinto Art Museum (PAM) is a haven for photo enthusiasts. All angles are picturesque. Thanks to Antonio Leaño, the museum director and designer. I can’t help but to fall in love with the Mediterranean inspired architectural design.

It was officially opened to the public in 2010 by Dr. Joven Cuanang, aiming to promote education and appreciation for local art and culture. Pinto which means “door” is open to all types of modern and contemporary arts.

How to get there:

From Cubao, ride an FX going to Antipolo Simbahan and from there take a tricycle going to the museum. Just tell the driver to drop you at Pinto Museum.

It took us almost 2 hours from Cubao going to the museum due to the heavy traffic in Antipolo but I can say that it’s all worth it. Upon paying the entrance fee of PHP 200 for a regular ticket, we all are excited to wander around.

There are several galleries and it will take you more than two hours to see everything.

Here are some of the interesting artworks:

Some arts delivers strong message.

Sometimes, we are losing our own identity trying to be everything for everyone. - Char! haha!

Is your heart made of steel? =P

If you get tired of roaming around, there are beds & sofas where you can sit and relax. =)

After roaming around the museum, we highly recommended Kapit bahay Filipino Cuisine for lunch.
