The museum houses over 1800 pieces, beautifully arranged in chronological corridors with explanatory panels and dioramas.

Relive the history of Ecuador’s most ancient cultures on this archaeological journey into its past.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from your hotel (or closest pick-up point) and taken in a private air-conditioned vehicle for a guided tour to the Archaeological Museum in the city of Quito.

The museum is located at the Ecuadorian House of Culture in Quito. It exhibits over 1800 pieces, highlighting the evolution of the cultures that developed in Ecuador in pre-Columbian times.

The pieces exhibited correspond to the period between 4000 BC (the oldest piece) and 1534 (the arrival of the Spanish Conquers to Ecuador).

The highlight of this museum is the Hall of Gold, which presents an exhaustive synthesis of the most precious legacy of magnificence and grandeur. In Ecuador, as in all the pre-Colombian Andean world, the principal manifestation of power, hierarchy and wealth was the brilliance of gold and other precious metals. On display are masks, nose pendants, rings, earrings and ornaments in gold and platinum, as well as artefacts of everyday use such as golden needles, fish hooks and depilatory tweezers.

At the end of this tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel (closest drop-off point) in Quito.
