"Museo de Banco Central" Museums Tip by el_ruso

Museums, Quito: 57 reviews and 158 photos


This place will amaze you. Sure, you have seen on TV some examples of pre-columbian art, but nothing compares with seeing the size and detail of these objects up close, and realizing that they were made centuries even before the incas. Detailed signs explain in detail development of these civilizations as well. There is also a hall, albeit rather small, with a collection of gold masks and objects from Incas. On the upper floors there is a collection of Catholic art, and modern art as well.

Directions: Avenida Patria next to El Ejido park
