The Weekend Crowd
Upon entering the subdivision, we saw a group of students exiting the museum and walking towards the tricycle terminal. We were then directed by the parking attendant towards the parking spot about 100 meters from the entrance of Pinto Art Museum. There we saw lines of cars parked along the pavement.
We knew right there and then that the museum was packed with eager and excited visitors like us.
Pinto Art Museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, 10:00 am to 6:00pm and should you wish to avoid the crowd, we recommend scheduling your visit there on a weekday. The museum does not require reservations prior to visits.

Café Dionysus is another café in the complex located in the roof deck just above the Pinto Academy for a more spectacular view.

Since we visited Pinto Art Museum in the afternoon, we were able to watch the sunset at the roof deck near the pool and upper garden. The towering trees provide a wonderful accent to the orange sky as the sun sets.
Overall, it was a good and visually stimulating experience. No wonder Pinto Art Museum
