Casa de la Cultura Ecuatoriana
This large and modern building is located in the north-central part of the city. It gathers together the best of Ecuadorian art. Each room or space reflects a different theme, such as ethnography, sculpture, music or painting. From time to time there are shows and exhibitions featuring local and foreign artists. This museum has facilities for artistic performances, exhibitions, film screenings, dance shows and other types of events. It is permanently open to the public and allows the visitor to enjoy a wide range of shows in one place.
The museum has nearly all the archeological & native indian displays in English. Which are both the best part of the museum. It is a little small, and you can get throught the whole museum in roughly 2 hours (thourogh visit). The modern art is interesting, but the best colonial displays are in the colonial part of Quito. In the past year and a half the colonial area has improved and is absolutely gorgeous... Make sure to spend a day there!
The Casa de la Cultura is an amazing collection of Incan artifacts, pre-Colombian tools and artifacts from local Indian groups, colonial and modern art. If you are going to visit any museum in Ecuador, make it this one. Allow at least three hours to see it all.
