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 del Ecuador (Central Bank Museum).

The 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.
The gardens at the foot of the hill are beautiful – featuring plant life from all over Ecuador. Great for an afternoon.
