Museo del Banco Central

Museo del Banco Central Review

The Central Bank Museum, Quito's most modern museum, features an astonishing collection of pre-Columbian archaeology and Inca artifacts. Brightly lighted cases containing sculptures from different regions of Ecuador stand next to large-scale dioramas detailing the minutiae of pre-Columbian life. The first floor includes an unparalleled collection of gold artifacts; journey upstairs to an excellent exhibit of colonial paintings and sculptures. Up one flight more you'll find an impressive collection of modern Ecuadoran paintings.
