The GSIS “Museo Nang Sining” (Art Museum) was established in April 1996 as an avenue to exhibit both Philippine and non-Philippine artistic expressions. It is a great museum to check out or to heighten one's interest or appreciation into Philippine arts.

The idea of putting up a museum in a government office let alone in an office that takes care of the insurance benefits of the people, to me is quite surprising and out of place. However, when I read the history of GSIS Art Museum, I was convinced that it is but proper!

In 1979 when the master plan of the new GSIS headquarters in Pasay City, an avenue (the museum) was allotted in order to represent the best artists that the country has produced in the field of Philippine visual arts. In 1980 the GSIS President and General Manager recommended to the GSIS Board of Trustees the purchase of selected paintings by some of the prestigious Filipino artists followed by hundreds of artworks by renowned Filipino painters including National Artists Fernando C. Amorsolo, Napoleon V. Abueva, etc. In 1996 GSIS Museo Nang Sining was formally inaugurated. The artworks are finally exhibited to the public as tribute to the creative endeavors of the contemporary Filipino.

The museum has permanent exhibition or displays of the GSIS Art Collections. Additionally, there are also changing exhibition in the galleries featuring cultural themes and works of new and aspiring talented artists.

The GSIS Art Museum functions not only as an exhibition space but it also holds art lectures, acting workshops, film showings and other activities pertaining to arts.

The Museum is open from Tuesday to Saturdays at 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. It is closed on Sundays and Mondays. Make your reservations/bookings at least one (1) month in advanced and submit the filled out form to the museum or send through fax transmission at Tel. No. 8590395. Reservation forms can be obtained from the GSIS website. For more information, you may also call 011-632-479-3588.

Food and beverages are not allowed inside the museum. Photography however is allowed. Visits to the GSIS museum come free of charge. The museum is located in Pasay City along Roxas Boulevard right inside the GSIS building and compound.

The easiest way to get there is via taxi. Just tell the taxi driver to bring you to GSIS building in Roxas Boulevard; every taxi driver should know where it is. You have to make sure the taxi driver runs the meter before you hop in. If you are coming from Makati, you shouldn’t be paying more than a hundred pesos (less than US$3.00).

You can also go there riding the "orange jeepneys" which are located near Vito Cruz LRT station. The route passes P. Ocampo Sr Street towards Roxas Boulevard and crosses it. Same jeepneys goes to the Senate :)
