There's no admission fee, but you'll be asked to leave a copy of your ID at the desk (a copy of your passport page is accepted). The museum signage -- what little there is -- is entirely in Spanish. It is interesting, and pleasant. If you've been walking around the city a bit, this is sort of an oasis. Be... More

Once owned by one of Ecuador liberators, the building is well worth a quick visit for its scale and impressive architecture although there is not much else to see apart from the building itself.

Sadly, it was a holiday and we were unable to go inside. Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed the outside and architecture along with the history our guide was able to provide.

There is no entrance fee for this attraction. I was just surprised to see about 7 young women seated at the Front Desk, none of whom speaks English. I was asked to show my ID, copy of my passport was fine. An English- speaking guide accompanied me in the tour. He explained the history of the house, Sucre and his... More

Museo Casa de Sucre was not crowded at all (August 2016) and earned a Very Good Rating from me based on the layout/exhibits and allowing photography inside. You can visit the rooms in less than an hour and it is easily located in the central historic district. Super friendly staff.

this beautiful home has been converted to a museum, but there is not a lot to see. Admission is free, which is nice, and some of the views from the upstairs windows are pretty, but the museum is just ho-hum

Sucre built this structure well over a century ago, and it's worth seeing if only for its intrinsic beauty. But I also enjoyed the stories of how the use of the building evolved, as well as the lives of the well-to-do. There is a lot of information--but only in Spanish. But enough written to make some good guesses.

I loved the architecture of the museum. It is a free walking tour. I had my tour in Spanish. I'm not sure if they offer tours in English. I personally loved to hear about Sucre. He was such an important figure in South America. Without Sucre, Bolivar may have been defeated.

Loved the architectural design of the building and the prominent indigenous art displayed in this ancient building.
