Equatorian artist insight. Guayasamin created his foundation to preserve his property beyond his death (2009), heritage to the Ecuadorian people. Superb!

You need to take an UBER to arrive to this site. It is located far from downtown. The entrance ticket costs 8 dollars and also allows to visit the house of Oswaldo Guayasamin. We arrived around 1100 am on a Saturday. There were very few...More

Great space to view art from an artist that wasn't known to me before this trip. Worth the time after you've toured the Guayasamin house nearby.

This museum is surprising in its architecture and scale. Beautiful and very impressive. There are some of Guayasamín’s largest works on building design is gorgeous as well. We ran out of time but would have liked to spend more.
