  • A house to its owner's height. Collections of arts of various styles and times. Opportunity to know the atelier and a little more of his life... Excellent guided tour!

  • Visiting the private house of one of the most important artists of South America is a must for art lovers ! Oswaldo Guayasmin left his house as a foundation to the Ecuadorian people ! A really great gesture ! He died in 1999 and had clearly regulated this before! Some unfinished works of art can be seen not only in colour palettes and brushes, as they are just leaving! Many famous personalities were guests in his house, among others Fidel Gastro !

  • This is an amazing place. Guayasamín is an excellent artist at the tours are great. You can also go through his house which in my opinion was even better than the Friday Kahlo house. If you do one thing in Quito, do this! 8$ for adults but discounts for students if you have the card.
  • Brilliant museum in the artist's former home on a hill overlooking Quito. The highlight of the visit was a video of him at work in his studio, where we were standing, painting the portrait hanging on the wall behind us. It was like he had just left before we arrived.
