Hubby’s friend and officemate had her prenuptial photo shoot at Pinto Art Museum. She likes the place so much that she suggested for our family to check it out, too. We were finally able to visit the museum two Sundays ago.
It took us less than an hour to get there from Ortigas using Waze. We arrived at the museum a few minutes before 5:00 p.m. The museum closes at 6:00 p.m., so that left us a little more than an hour to explore the place.
Everyone pays an admission fee to the museum, except for children 3 years old and below. The rates are as follows:
• Adult – Php200
• Senior Citizen or PWD – Php180
• Student – Php100 (with valid school ID or proof of enrolment)
• 3 Years Old Below – FREE
Visitors are not allowed to bring food and drinks to the museum, but a restaurant is available inside in case you get thirsty or hungry. It’s called Café Rizal, most likely named after our national hero since the place was adorned with Rizal memorabilia.
Being Café Rizal’s last customers of the day, we felt quite guilty for having given the waitstaff additional workload, but we simply couldn’t leave Pinto Art Museum without trying their food offerings since hubby’s friend had nice words about those, too.
My son and I ordered these Cinco de Mayo and Dr. JC’s Batanes Roulade, while hubby had Callos. You’ll find our verdict on these food items in my food blog Delight My Appetite.
As with all establishments, Pinto has its rules and policies for visitors, too. Some of the more important ones are the following:
• No touching/leaning on artworks
• No flash photography inside the galleries
• No taking of videos
• No smoking
• No pets allowed
• If you break an item, you will pay for it!
Pinto Art Museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and CLOSED on Mondays.
