    Well worth stopping in for a short visit
    This is a relatively small museum and you probably only need 30 minutes here, 45 maximum. They have some really lovely glass sculptures on show here by Ramon Orlina. The museum also displays some paintings and sculptures by other well know Philippine artists such as BenCab. The pieces are well displayed and not crammed in. Well worth stopping in for a short visit.

    A little gem in Tagatay
    We visted the museum which is an art gallery of glass sculptures and othe pieces of art plus a sculpture garden. The sculptures are quite stunning and this really is a little gem of a place near the Tagatay markets. Modern art that you really would like in your home.

    Quick Stop
    If you're in Tagaytay and you want an escape from it's now too crowded attractions this one's for you. It's right across Tagaytay-Sta.Rosa road. WARNING! for newbie drivers, you're in for a challenge. The intimidatingly steep road that leads to the museum may appear difficult, it's so steep that I couldn't help but literally hold my breath while we're on our way down. Nested on a spot where you could enjoy Tagaytay's awesome view of the country's smallest volcano, Taal, this museum also houses a great collection of glass sculptures. I find most of the pieces unique and almost unreal. I'm pretty sure that shaping glass is not an easy feat, what more if you have to shape them into lifelike sculptures? Truly a masterclass collection. Paintings, Sculptures, and other art installations from other artists are also present in this four story museum, which by the way also has a garden full of metal installations and a roof deck that would give you a majestic view of Taal lake. A hundred pesos is not a bad price at all. Here are some of the photos I took.

the place is nice. the sculptures and paintings were all equally nice and interesting to look at. the only downside would have to be the sculptures displayed in the garden coz it's all open space and it rained when we reached that area. there's no turning back and there's no place to wait out the rain coz your only way is the exit which is other side of the entrance. so you would really get wet and there's no one to assist you

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.
