The Museum is situated on a pleasant plaza in the western part of downtown, in a large building that once served as a temperance asylum and jail. Today it is a spacious home to the city museum of modern art. Several well-landscaped courtyards give the...More

In historic center, a convent and former school converted to a Ecuadorian modern art museum. Small and quaint (and free) with some very good modernistic pieces and lovely gardens. The entire exhibit takes about 45 minutes to see but is well worth it.

The space is very cool, if only there had been better art in it. I actually have a pretty low bar for finding art at least amusing. Not here. Reading the other reviews, I'm hoping we were there at a low point. It is really...More

A small but interesting museum. The displays feature local artists. The building has a fascinating history, so take a second and google it.

Though often skeptical of modern art, I very much enjoyed this museum. My husband and I went right before Christmas 2017, and were delighted by the Geometric Exhibit and other black and white abstract exhibit. The museum is centrally located, has a pleasant layout, and...More

This is a wonderful restoration and museum. Unfortunately we did not know they were between exhibits, so we just looked around. It would be great to see it when they had more exhibits. It is on the beautiful San Sebastian Square.

I'm not a big modern art fan so didn't expect to enjoy this as much as I did. There was a large, single exhibition by a German artist created specifically about Equador and colonialism and the building itself is an old colonial monastery. The receptionist...More

The exhibits here change all the time, so you never know what you're going to get. If modern art isn't your 'thing' then you probably won't be impressed by what's on show, least of all by what's here as of July 2017. Woeful might be...More

A really important exhibition on there, which drew parallels between the Spanish conquistadors taking over the country in the name of Christianity, with their lust for gold, and US multinationals taking over in the name of globalisation, with the same lust. Exhibits include a bunch...More
