Decent little museum. Fairly interesting, however, I would not put it on the must-do list of things to see. If you are looking to burn some time then this place is the perfect area to do it in. There is also a restaurant inside.

This museum was nice but it wouldn’t be on my list of ‘musts.’ However, there was a nice little restaurant inside, which was a bit difficult to find, offering a relaxing place to sit and relax in the quiet with a nice view. The Locro...More

We enjoyed the cultural exhibits which were arranged chronologically. The building originated as a hospital and we wished there was more info on that. Lovely courtyard.

Good museum, and sort of well organized. Part of the museum has translated cards for English and Kichwa speakers, but only about 1/3 or 1/2 of it (there was a big gap of time in the middle).

This is a nice museum which tells the story of the city of Quito. They had a group of students, I think, after I went thru the entrance who told me a little about the museum and the various exhibits. Some but not all of...More
