Huge facility with lovely views of Quito. Would be a great event space for things like weddings. Amazingly light on content for a museum. Our 2 year old had a great time in the bubble room and in the children's park area.

The views of Quito are insanely good from here. Museum itself was mediocre and mostly in Spanish without English translation, although the introductory video has subtitles. A nice walking trail from below the museum too is worth it, and some interesting water-inspired art. Bubble room...More

The yaku musuem is located on the highs of Quito (Pichincha Mountain). It's a water based theme museum. Interesting though not incredible. But worth to visit, mostly for the tremendous view on Quito.
