“Very good exposition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2013

It was very worthy to visit this museum. It shows not only history of Quito but also history of Ecuador.

“interesting, well-displayed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

We really enjoyed this museum. It's not gigantic, so not overwhelming. Lots of information on the history of Quito, well-displayed, well-kept. Touches on military, science, architecture, society, etc. Some fascinating wooden inlay maps in the flooring!

“Neat little Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

Couldn't find another recommended museum and stumbled across this one. It was once an old hospital and is just a neat little place with the history of Quito as well as Ecuador in general. A nice litle find.

“Nicely done local museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Very nice display of the history of Quito and surrounding areas. Hopefully they will get signs up in English as it was hard to find an English speaking guide. The wood inlaid floors in several of the display rooms are incredible

“Signs only in Spanish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

I can read Spanish fairly well, but it doesn't mean I want to stand there for forever to make sure I understand what I am reading. Skip it until they get English signage and just read up on the history online.
