From Looloo Insights:

“Pinto” means door in Filipino, and this lovely museum in Antipolo considers itself to be a “threshold for contemporary art practice.” It might as well be a doorway to another world.

The museum is hidden inside a 1.2 hectare property also known as Silangan Gardens in a private subdivision in Antipolo, Rizal. It contains a massive yet well-curated collection of modern paintings, sculptures and art installations, sure to leave visitors inspired.

Pinto Art Museum manages to integrate all the artwork and man-made structures with the existing environment. Unlike formal museums which preserve art pieces in controlled air-conditioned rooms, all the buildings here are open-air structures, which keep everything very natural. Contemporary art pieces can be found spread out in the Mediterranean-inspired villas, as well as in the well-manicured gardens and landscaped greens.

How to get there:

Pinto Art Museum is accessible by private vehicle and by public transportation through Sumulong Highway or Ortigas Avenue Extension. If commuting, make your way to Antipolo via jeep or FX and get off at the Ynares Center. Take a tricycle to Grand Heights Subdivision.

In my recent trip to the Philippines, I paid a visit to this museum! I was with some TB members. The plethora of art work in all forms makes this museum a fantastic place to visit! Galing!
