While this museum is worth a visit, it is not a great way to learn about local culture. Local artifacts that are worth seeing, like a shrunken head and an Amazonian house are mixed together with items from Mexico, Hawaii and Indonesia with no signs...More

Hiring a guide is a great idea if you have only one day in Quito. Our guide took us to the Centro Historico to see the beautiful churches and colonial architecture, as well as the Intinan Museum. The museum will take 1-2... More
