See my previous review! This is a must see and is paired with the Neighbouring museum. It is a bit of a drive from the old town but an amazing display of the reflection of the socioeconomic strife of the South American indigenous people.

I went there by the advice of an Ecuadorian friend, not knowing what to expect, but definitely the museum and the story of Oswaldo Guayasamin exceed what I thought I was going to see. People working on the foundation are extremely gentile, polite and they...More

As part of our tour of Quito and the Galapagos, our guide brought us to this museum. I had never heard of Oswaldo Guayasamin, who some call the Picasso of the South, but was immediately intrigued by the house and the art it contained. The...More

I confess that I did not know Guayasamin's work. I am not his biggest fan. His paintings are dramatic intense and haunting. And the house he built is beautiful - filled with art and antiquities. it alone is worth the visit.

The Guayasamin museum and ajoining home celbrates Ecuador's greatest artist Oswaldo Guayasamin. The museum is beautifully presented and showcases his work admirably. The adjoining home of Guayasamin has lots of memorabilia and gives great insight into the man. This is a must do in Quito.

We are not museum fans but this is a MUST-visit when in Quito, Guayasamin is an Amazing artist and this Museum is an experience. It is well guided and his art is very moving. We were truly stunned.

Take the time if you're in Quito to learn about this artist and his work. The guide was informative. The home/museum well worth the trip.

Guayasamin is not particularly well known in the West but if you like modern art a visit with tour is well worthwhile. I rate this the best attraction in Quito.

it's pretty out of the way up some steep hills. get a taxi, it's a cheap fare and a difficult walk, especially if it's hot.
