Knowing that I will have my hands full once baby number 3 is born, I try to spend as much quality time with my 2 daughters as possible. So when my highschool best friends planned a daytrip to Antipolo for some R&R a couple of months ago, I immediately tagged Cesca (my eldest) along for some mom-and-daughter bonding.

Pinto Art Museum – Your Barkada’s Next Daytrip Destination

Our itinerary is packed to make the most of the daytrip. After a quick stop at the Our Lady of Peace Church where we also bought suman for pasalubong, we then head out to Pinto Art Museum.

‘pinto’ to Pinto

‘Pinto’ meaning door in Tagalog seems fit as a name for the place as it opens one’s perspective into a wide array of Filipino arts.
The sprawling garden is spacious enough that even if there were plenty of people visiting (we came on a Saturday), it does’t feel crowded at all. Being a city kid, Cesca had a great time running through the lawn scattered with numerous art installations and day beds. Perfect for lounging!

3 months preggy here. Hindi ko keri ang pose ni ate!

Pinto Museum has several galleries displaying a variety of visual wonders. Cultured na cultured ang peg namin while going through the exhibits. I heard that they have guided tours as well but we were not able to avail of this when we were there.

Appreciating art. She took a LOT of pictures btw.

Roaming through the place, you’ll never run out of things to see. And even if you’re not really that artsy, you’ll surely appreciated the pieces showcased. Bonus if you’ll be coming along with your family or barkada, since the place is very Instagram-worthy. Perfect pang profile pic!

Feast your eyes on Pinto Museum’s Art Pieces and Installations

Seriously speaking, the place is truly picturesque with every nook and corner screaming photo opportunity. It’s no wonder that it’s a go-to place for pre-nuptial shoots and pictorials.

Here are some of my favorite pieces from the gallery:

We spent a good 3 hours exploring the place and it was 3 hours worth spent. It made me realize that it’s good to once in a while take a step back and appreciate the things in front of us. In our fast paced lives, it has become very easy to just go with the flow and watch things flash by. It made us so used to the idea of always hassling, as result we’re always trying to beat the deadline and running after accomplishing things. Maybe it won’t do us any harm if we see things from the eyes of a child.

With her head frowned, scrutinizing the art in front of her. Asking questions and full of curiosity. Then slowly, with a smile forming on her lips, ” Wow, Ma. Ang ganda! Ang ganda nito!”
Very pretty. Very pretty indeed.

  1. i really want to visit this place! I saw a lot lately from different bloggers and it made me so eager to explore this art museum. The paintings and the sculptures are very unique… I am planning visit Antipolo next month so I make sure to include this on my trip! Thanks for sharing. I’m sure you and your daughter had a blast here and it’s nice of you to expose her in such art and let her appreciate it on her own ways

  2. Visiting a museum with your kids feels like you’re in a school field trip, only that, you got to spend more time and eloquently explain the art in frames to your kids. It’s a pretty good tour than always bringing the children in malls.

  3. It’s like everyone has gone to Pinto Art Museum but me! Such a shame considering the fact that I am a fan of art. I really should book a trip there soon!

  4. Awesome!!! The Pinto Art Museum has been on my lists of museums to see in Manila for so so so long! I hope that one weekend, when I needed a little breather from the city life I’ll be able to visit and see the beautiful art pieces ☺

  5. Oh, so this museum pala is in Antipolo. I haven’t been to Rizal for so long but this place will be very lovely to visit. It’s nice your daughter appreciates museums too.

  6. Wow! As an artist by trade, I feel a strong responsibility to visit the place and gawk at the beautiful pieces on display. I’ve always loved visiting museums and similar go-to’s! Your eldest looks so adorable, too, hehe.

  7. The Pinto Art museum looks like a wonderful place to visit and your daughter looks quite happy with you there! What a beautiful looking time

  8. I just visited Pinto Art the other days and it is so beautiful! We have the same favorite pieces from the museum! 🙂 Too bad it poured hard when we were there so we had to leave. We weren’t able to visit gallery 4, 5, and 6 🙁
