Another "must see" in my opinion. What a fantastic way to learn about Ecuador's development as a city, in addition to being a beautiful space with another phenomenal view of the city. My daughter, age 11, and I both enjoyed the museum. There were no...More

Apart from the first video display that has English subtitles, this is not somewhere to come if you don't speak Spanish. It's basically the first and current water treatment plant for the old city. It's probably good if you have kids (as there are some...More

Huge facility with lovely views of Quito. Would be a great event space for things like weddings. Amazingly light on content for a museum. Our 2 year old had a great time in the bubble room and in the children's park area.

It was great to see a South American museum trying to educate people about the the importance to fight water pollution and showing different ways to develop more Eco-conscience. The views alone make the museum a place worth to visit. Go check out the old...More

The views of Quito are insanely good from here. Museum itself was mediocre and mostly in Spanish without English translation, although the introductory video has subtitles. A nice walking trail from below the museum too is worth it, and some interesting water-inspired art. Bubble room...More

The yaku musuem is located on the highs of Quito (Pichincha Mountain). It's a water based theme museum. Interesting though not incredible. But worth to visit, mostly for the tremendous view on Quito.
