We had no idea as to what to expect on this stop, but we are glad we did. There is a lot to see, learn and enjoy on this museum stop. The structure is really a good one that is well maintained. The interiors are interesting and the history is intriguing. The furnishings are attractive and the layout of the structure unique.

The location is very close to the main square. It is easy to find. There is an "artist and craft show" on the street below. It is worth a quick look if it is in place.

We spent about an hour here walking around and seeing the various rooms in the old house. Beautiful and well cared for.

The presentations were well done and interesting to see how people lived in the early 1800's. Many interesting paintings and rooms representing how General Sucre may have lived.

Well worth the stop!

I came across this place by chance, escaping from the crowds in the main square and what a gift! I was the only visitor at that time but was offered a free guided tour by one of the girls who was at the (free) ticket office. Fascinating visit, very thorough explanations: I learned a lot about the country's history and its prócer de la independencia, Mariscal Antonio José de Sucre. I definitely recommend it if you want to learn more about the history and the character. Also: very nice views from the balcony on the first floor.

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 sure to go upstairs! Restrooms at the back left side (en route to the back stairway) are free.

Free place to kill some time to take a break and use a clean restroom. Not alot to see but a few interesting things here and there. Restrooms are nice and places to sit and rest are located on the second floor of this house. You need to show ID for at least one person to gain entry.

The house is well kept and restored. Very interesting. I mostly enjoyed the weaponry and battle details and learning about the history since I am a noob when it comes to South America. (My wife is studying Latin America so she helped fill in details since we had no tour.)

Only took us about an hour to see the whole place but we didn't waste much time. Also it is cheap, I think $1 a person or so.

Also, I should note we had a problem with them accepting our $5 bill (from a US bank???) and had to dig to find some Sacajaweas to pay. It kind of put a damper on the visit at first but we worked it out. Apparently this is not an uncommon problem in Ecuador, probably because they are used to newer bills—there was nothing wrong with our bill, it just had a rough crease in the middle because it was old, but they wouldn't accept it and made a case that it was counterfeit, despite the watermark and my blonde hair and blue eyes... So keep that in mind.

Located on Calle Sucre near the corner of Venezuela, this is the former home of the Ecuadorean hero and liberator. It is very well preserved to how it looked back when he lived here. The exhibits and military history displays are only in Spanish and our guide knew very little English but she tried very hard to explain the displays to us. If you’re spending a day exploring Quito’s Old Town, it is certainly worth taking the 20-30 minutes to pop in and visit this house/museum.
