  • It was a fun little museum if you have a free 30 min in Quito. It is a good representation of what a house of an aristocrat would have looked like in the early 19th century, and had a good overview of Sucre's life.
  • Awesome museum with a stunning collection of antiques, pictures and original furniture from the colonial and republican periods. A must see if you are in Quito.
