Tagaytay Art Scene : Museo Orlina

     I am already aware of the name Mr. Ramon Orlina and his art works , I mean who wouldn't? he is a multi-awarded glass sculptor whose reputation is extended to the art scene all through out the world, but my first personal interaction with his art work was at the Art Philippines 2017 last February and on spot I was astounded by the gleaming emerald curved glasses and unique shapes. Hooked I was like a fish in a net , I searched further regarding his works and stumbled on an information about MuseOrlina located at Tagaytay. The place is very near from where I live in the South. No hesitations and I went to check out the Museum alone. The Museum's design and structure is very modernize, consisting of three floors and a roofdeck (each floors is named after Mr. Orlina's three daughter and son). Upon entering the premises their attendant will let you watch a short introductory video about the artist, his early artworks also rules and regulations while inside the facility.  

      You will also get a great view of the Taal volcano and lake from the Museum.

     Since Mr. Orlina accomplished his architectural degree at University of Santo Thomas in Manila it became the foundation of his artworks, you  will see a lot of mixed medias being displayed in the Museum. Mix of glasses and Metals or woods.

He also makes Jewelries

My favorite the Butt chairs

     Museum doesn't only showcase Mr. Orlina's artworks, they also present artworks of young aspiring talents from different Universities, This is a very big help for our youngsters who would love to pursue a path in Artistry, here are some of the artworks of our millennial.

      I personally love the outdoor structure garden section, perfect spot in the vicinity for an afternoon chill plus the weather in Tagaytay major Awesome! Garden has a small amphitheater  where they held Art Beat an event that showcase art and music . Local bands were invited to perform for the said event, too bad I wasn't able to attend it tickets were sold out in a whiplash.

How to get there

Public Transportation
  • Go to provincial us terminal at Buendia and Coastal Road Parañque.
  • Take the Buses with signage's going to Tagaytay or Nasugbu, they have air-conditioned  buses and ordinary buses.
  • Travel time would take around 3 - 4 hours from Manila.
  • Alight at the Tagaytay town proper rotunda from there you can get a tricycle for Php50.00 going to Hollywood Subdivision.
  • though some of the tricycle drivers will drop you off at the entrance of the subdivision  and you have to walk down to the Museum, you have to be extra careful the road is very steep.

Private Car
  • Get to the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX)
  • Get off the Slex at the Santa Rosa Exit
  • After the toll turn right then proceed until you reach the Tagaytay city marketplace
  •  From the Market place drive going to Tagaytay Econo Hotel, Hollywood Subdivision where the Museum is located  is just beside the Hotel
  •  Drive safely while entering the subdivision since the road is very steep
  • If you are planning to visit on a weekend I suggest to go there via public transportation since there's a difficult parking space and weekend is the busiest.
