Pinto Art Museum
Pinto Art Museum is one of the museums that I wanted to visit since last year. In fact, I instantly fell in love with the place after reading the reviews from the internet, and after seeing its photos. Fortunately, it wasn’t really difficult going there despite being 40km away from where I live. Actually, I have no idea how to go there, and I’m really bad with directions. So, we used waze and our travel time was only 1 hour and 30 minutes (from Las Piñas. Lol). Yay!
Anyway, we arrived there at around 9:30 AM. I saw the parked cars, and I was worried that it will be crowded inside. Nevertheless, I’m still looking forward to seeing the art galleries.
Who would have thought that behind that small door is a 1.2 hectare property? Surprisingly, I really can’t believe it at first. As a matter of fact, I said we could stay there for an hour only. Obviously, I was thinking that it was a small place only. In reality, it’s not!
We paid an entrance fee of Php 200 per person. We then received a copy of the museum’s map which has rules written at the back.
Few things to remember are:
- No flash photography
- Food or pets are not allowed
- Backpacks are allowed
- Smoking inside the museum is strictly prohibited
There are more rules listed, however, I forgot to bring home a copy so I can’t share it with you.
Now then, the pictures below are my favorite shots of the museum. It was indeed good to the eyes. In fact, I was jumping for joy because it was too beautiful. I really like the open-air Mediterranean-inspired villas.

Indeed, it is a great place to appreciate nature and art. As a result, we stayed there for more than 2 hours. Pinto Art Museum is a must-see tourist spot.
