  • The Chapel of Man, as this Museum is known, is a museum you can not miss on your visit to Quito, you will find it breath taking, not only because of the impressive collection of Guayasamin´s art...

  • Most famous artist from Ecuador. The museum has his house and his foundation. Most of his large art pieces are displayed in the latter. The location is not in the city center so it’s better to take a taxi or Uber. Entry fee is $10 per person. There is a tour of the house first (English) and then you are free to tour the rest of the museum. Worth a look if you are curious about him.
  • Very informative. Worth the visit if you are into art. You can tour the art museum and Guayasamin's house and personal art collection. Take the tour the tour guides know their facts.
  • This was a real great experience. Happy to learn about one of Ecuador’s most influential artists. A real treat. Cost to enter is $8/adult in August of 2018. Close enough to the botanical gardens to walk there on foot. If you’re an art lover this is a must see.
  • A wonderful -nearly sacred place -. Intense , beutiful and also sad paintings.
  • Quito is full of fantastic museum, one of them is Art Museum Guayasamin (Contemporary Artist, Oswaldo Guayasamin). The most influential artist, his style mostly "close to Picasso" It is restricted to capture the sculpture, paintings, artifacts etc inside the museum (so lucky if you were a sketcher). Keep in mind along life LOL. Including his house tour, with all informative description from tour guide. Visit this place while you are in Quito is a must
