Cuenca museums are a treasure trove of artifacts and information about Ecuador's past.
Whether it's the culture of the aboriginal groups or the history of Ecuador itself, including its independence from Spain, you can spend days in these museums and still feel that you've missed something.
Below you'll find links to the various Cuenca museums. We think you'll find them a great way to experience Ecuador, even if you don't understand everything (since it's almost all in Spanish).
Museo del Sombrero de Paja Toquilla, or the Panama Hat Museum
Casa de la Cultura, Salón del Pueblo, or The House of Culture, Village Room
Museo de las Conceptas, or the Museum of Religious Art
Museo de las Culturas Aborigenes, or The Museum of Aboriginal Cultures
Museo Municipal de Arte Moderno, or the Municipal Museum of Modern Art

I just want to thank you both soooo much for creating this web site. I am originally from Cuenca but moved to New York 11 years ago and have not being back since. My husband and I are planning on visiting Cuenca over the Summer and this web site has helped me a lot.
When I came to the US we still had the "sucre," the bus ride cost 1,000 sucres and a pack of trident gum would cost 3,000 sucres. I am very nervous to go back, but thanks to your web site I now know what to expect.
My husband is American and Captivating Cuenca has taught him a lot about what my great city has to offer, things that I had forgotten about myself! :)
Thank You both so much! I cannot wait to visit Cuenca!!
