Museo Banco Central, Cuenca Ecuador

Posted in: 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).

Banco Central - Hillside and Goldfish PondAviary Banco Central


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.

Find it on Calle Larga y Av Huayna Capac, not far from the center of the city.
