There is so much energy, so much passion and so much talent! Guayasamin indeed was a true genius. Going there was totally worth the expensive entrance fee.

Oswaldo Guayasamin takes in his art the struggle for freedom and dignity above class and religion! A must when in Quito! On top of that a visit to his home takes beyond imagination.

Definitely worth a visit. Guayasamin's work is powerful and is displayed in a wonderful, yet intimate museum. This is a place definitely worth visiting, especially if interested in local art.

This was a wonderful insight into the word of Mr. Guayasamin. He was Equadorian but has a sympathetic heart for all of the world's suffering peoples. Seeing his house and the adjacent museum of his work is something not to be missed.

This museum is located next door to the artist's home, which is also open for tours. See them both, and plan to spend at least half a day there.
