Guyasmin's murals are wall size. His "chapel" was specifically created to display them. They are very moving. Visiting his home, which is next door to the chapel, is also worth the time. Allow a minimum of 3 hours

A trip to Quito is not complete without visiting this museum. Start with the house guided tour and do the gallery tour after.

The home of Guayasamin is gorgeous and his personal art collection is impressive and interesting. I was very impressed that their a tour guide waiting for your to enter and a guided tour is part of the experience. The actual museum has stunning work by Guayasamin and a tour is also available. There is a gift shop to buy post cards, prints, and nick knacks. I had been looking forward to this excursion ever since we planned our trip to Quito and it did not disappoint.

I recommend taking cab (make sure it is a legitimately registered cab) since the neighborhood, Bella Vista is on a VERY steep hill... and pay no more than $3.

A definite must if you are in Quito for a few days and interested in modern Ecuadorian culture.

Capilla del Hombre is stunning. Great views, amazing house & studio tour, and awesome art. We went on a Sunday, when entrance is free, and spent the whole afternoon exploring. They closed, or else we would have stayed all night! Cool gift shop, too, and right next to some hikes in the Parque Metropolitano. Go! Enjoy!

I accidentally posted my review under "Guayasamin museum" which is different. We loved this place and spent an entire afternoon there. Beautiful views and amazing art! They also have a free guided tour in Spanish offered regularly - glad we joined because we didn't know much about Guayasamin. This is a must-see in Quito!
