The first time I saw friends in Facebook and Instagram visiting this museum, I knew I had to go too. For one, I love museums (I had such great times in BenCab in Baguio, Ayala in Makati, and the National Museum in Manila), and this museum’s architecture and atmosphere just enticed me.
And the wonderful thing about Pinto Art Museum is that you feel you are taken to a totally different locale, when in fact, it’s just inside a subdivision in Antipolo (I envy my Sorority batchmate who lives next door!).
My first time in Pinto was with my boyfriend JV, a few weeks before we became official. Haha. Pinto was a memorable place for both of us and the lush gardens coupled with the Spanish-inspired architecture made for a lovely, lovely visit that I still fondly look back to, to this day. 🙂
I was able to visit Pinto again more recently, this time with my dad’s side of the family. Nothing much changed in the place. But the experience seemed totally new even if it was already my second time to visit.
