Very nice museum, must-visit while in Cuenca! They have a department with some ‘modern’ art, but the main attraction are the well displayed artifacts, clothes and reconstructed villages of the native people of Ecuador.

This is an interesting museum of artifacts and the remnants of an Incan location. The gardens are very nice- a demonstration garden of typical Incan staple foods, and more with a small collection of native birds in a very pleasant setting. Worth a relaxed afternoon stroll

For a free activity this easily took a couple of hours to see. Interesting (some bilingual) exhibitions indoors and an extensive outdoor area with flowers, llamas and ruins. Other than the depressing aviary the whole place was a great way to spend an afternoon and all for free.
