The thought of summer always makes you want to go to the beach, engage in drinking those cold sweet drinks they offer at the cupcake store, spend a whole day choosing what tank top looks good on you, or rather staying in the bed alone in your room while watching movies.
How about you set aside all those plans first and try visiting museums instead? Well, I was lucky because I managed to squeeze a visit to the Pinto Art Museum in our two-day trip to Antipolo. I have been eye-ing on visiting this museum for months! And I finally had the opportunity! YAY.
Museums might bore you sometimes, but I swear, I’ve been to A LOT of museums already and the Pinto Art Museum is now my favorite museum in the Philippines! The place is so huge and gives you that ~*hipster*~ vibe.
If ever you plan to visit the Pinto Art Museum, I recommend that you allot at least 4-6 hours (or maybe a whole day! LOL) for it. Why? Simply because the place is packed with so many different kinds of artwork you cannot simply just give a few seconds to look at them. As an art student, I appreciate all sorts of art and I study each one of them and how I am left with awe on how the artist made it. Try to look as closely as possible to the artworks and question yourself on how they managed to create such an intricate masterpiece. The details will surely leave you in awe too. Plus, I bet you’ll be taking a lot of pictures too, so that adds up to additional time as well.
Entrance fee is Php 150 for adult and Php 75 for students (with valid id).
I didn’t quite took as many photos as I can since we were kind of in a hurry and we got there around 2pm and we have to leave at around 4pm (bummer right?). So here’s my this-is-not-the-last-time-I’ll-be-visiting-you photo to end this post:
