Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo Reopens Their Doors

But non-essential travel from Metro Manila to the province is still prohibited.

( Most art hubslike theaters and museumsin Metro Manila and nearby areas have been closed since community quarantine started in March. This forced most of them to come up with the most innovative ways to bring art to our laptop screens by staging virtual shows or online exhibits. But with restrictions slowly easing in other parts of the country, some museums can finally open their doors again to visitors. One of which is Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo, Rizal, which started welcoming guests again in their door-filled galleries. This comes after Rizal was placed under modified general community quarantine on September 1.

New gallery hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., from Tuesday to Sunday; and admission fee is now at P250 for regular visitors, P200 for senior citizens, and P125 for children and students. Walk-ins are allowed.
