Cap off your trip by visiting the newest Tagaytay tourist spot for family, Museo Orlina. Opening in 2014, the gallery is owned by a world-renowned artist who is considered a pioneer of glass sculpting in the country, Ramon Orlina.
The private gallery has four levels, all named after Orlina’s children: the Nasea, where seasonal exhibitions are held; the Ningning, where most of his glass works are displayed; the Anna, which houses photographs and his early works on bronze and steel media; and the Michael, or the roof deck level which offers a stunning panoramic view of the Tagaytay highlands.
There’s also a sculpture garden in this Tagaytay tourist spot for families where gigantic installation pieces stand and an outdoor amphitheater where concerts and art performances usually occur.
The entrance fee is PhP150 per head, while seniors, PWDs, and students are PhP120 per head.
How to get to Museo Orlina: Ride a bus going to Tagaytay, Mendez, or Nasugbu from terminals in PITX in Parañaque or Buendia in Pasay, then alight at Tagaytay Rotonda. Ride a tricycle heading straight to Museo Orlina (travel time is around 2 to 2.5 hours); via private car: enter SLEX and exit via Sta. Rosa. Turn right onto Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road, then right onto Tagaytay-Calamba Road. Turn left and drive further; Museo Orlina should be on your right (travel time is around 2 to 2.5 hours).
