A Canadian Family Traveling & Living Abroad (in Ecuador)

Museo Banco Central, Cuenca Ecuador

With at least a dozen major museums in Cuenca, there is lots to keep inquiring minds busy. The best, however, is also the largest museum in the city: Museo Banco Central (Central Bank Museum).

Includes exhibits featuring colonial artwork, walk-through displays of typical homes throughout Ecuador’s history, an Incan archaeological site, an aviary featuring common birds in Ecuador and a small group of llamas that graze in the open field. Great for an afternoon. The gardens at the foot of the hill are beautiful – featuring plant life from all over Ecuador.
