The old reliable. During weekdays, Ayala Museum is almost always a ghost town. There are multiple floors to get lost in, and even if you aren't an art enthusiast, the chilly silence is enough to make the most tired of city folk find solace. The exhibits and displays carry different genres, so there's definitely something to tickle your fancy.
PINTO ART MUSEUM!
Can't count how many times I've been here, but I've been visiting since 2014! The last time I visited was just last Feb 2021.
Before the pandemic, I visited this place too (December 2019). This year I was surprised that the Gallery 7 is already open! It's bigger than the other galleries. When I was there, there are parts that doesn't have artworks yet.
Experience while it's "pandemic":
We were told to wear our masks at all times, even when taking photos, that's why my fiancé and I only took "talikodgenic" photos. You'll see others taking off their masks for the gram-- not following instructions but okay. 😂
I remember 2014, the entrance fee was only 100 pesos. We paid 250 pesos each now I think. And some artworks are no longer here-- they're probably sold.
Pinto Art Museum has a cafe now, too. Like the museums abroad, you may now tour this for 2-3 hours. Maybe 4 when the Gallery 7 is already full of art.
Pinto Art Museum is an exhibition space and contemporary museum located in the Philippines’ historic pilgrimage city of Antipolo outside of Manila.
This museum is perfect for those people who loves taking aesthetic and minimalist photos. This place are instagrammable.
The entrance fee is 250 pesos / per pax.
