One of my favorite sculptors is Ramon Orlina so I was looking forward to visiting his museum. We were greeted by a pleasant reception staff who asked us to pay a very reasonable entrance fee of P130 per person. A few steps from the reception desk is an area where you sit down to watch a brief video about Mr. Orlina before starting your tour. And then you help yourself to several floors of beautiful Orlina pieces. I enjoyed myself because I really love his work and hope to own one someday. It was a good idea to have the work of other talented Filipino artists displayed at one floor. At the end you are allowed to go down to a garden where there was an amphitheater and large sculpture pieces were displayed. We stayed here for a bit to enjoy the view and the tranquility.

The museum is a great destination in Tagaytay, definitely something one shouldn’t miss if you’re an Orlina fan.

The Museo Orlina is in Tagaytay near the junction of the Santa Rosa Road overlooking Lake Taal. You drive down a steep slope off the road to front gate. From the outside it looks small but it is built on a cliff and you enter on the third floor.

The Museo displays the art work of Ramon Orlina, mostly sculptures in glass. The works are various shapes and sizes, he uses colour and shape and then captures the light to present something truly amazing and beautiful.

His nude in nude, is at first look a square green glass cube, but as you look closer inside is body, you move around to make. Then from another she disappears and another appears. Both are like trapped in a cocoon.....

Ramon Orlina is one of the Philippines most celebrated artists. His pioneering in glass sculpture is amazing to see up close so be sure to visit his gallery.
If you take your children, keep them under control as the artwork is delicate.

My wife and i spent the weekend in the ANYA resort. we love walking so decided to do a walking tour. around 25 minutes walk is the Orlina Musueum which is on the ridge. i have known about Orlina and has glass work so wanted to see the collection. the musuem is well laid out and has a number of his works plus selected works (that get changed periodically) from other artists. the musuem is perched on the ridge so one has a beautiful view of Taal lake and volacano. it is wonderful to have art in such a location

Museo Orlina, A Wonder for the New Era

The place is within a subdivision and is known by most people, so you really won't get lost.

Upon entering, you'll be given tickets and will have to stay for a 3-minute introduction of the place. The exhibit has 4 floors, showing Orlina's magnum opus and collections; the rooftop has a scenic view of the Taal Lake.

It was a bit hot inside the museum, but it was well kept. The front desk officers were a bit moody, but maybe it's just because of the weather. You may use their e-jeepney to go back up the highway, since the road to and fro the building is steep.
