  • Not really a museum, or a gallery. The artist’s work had been banned from public display by the government so it now lives in this place. Some things ugly, some things amusing but nothing pretty. Heav...  more »
  • A Cultural Center / Museum / Café that amazes with its originality and freshness. It was very well received and the coffee is good! To see family! A good address.

  • It is a cultural center with an indoor caferia that has played host to many young people with alternative tastes in terms of music, clothing, and orientation. It is a place worth knowing to understand new generations and their tastes, it possesses a variety of handicrafts made by his client who offer a new way to do tourism.

  • The owner is a great artist and has talent. Very affordable entrance fee
  • Fun display of multi-media art but definitely not for everyone.
  • Underground, artistic, relaxed and informal. Also good for a snack with a beer
  • I'm all for talking about cultural taboos, but this museum was just a creepy, overpriced (at $2 entrance fee) experience. My dad and I visited thinking we could check out some weird artwork and grab a beer or coffee inside, but the place was just too filthy to consider ingesting anything here. It wasn't the Christ figures with erections that bothered me but just the musty, stained environment and dirty kitchen that was easily visible. Taboos don't frighten me as much as the prospect of sickness from food service. All the artwork seemed to be just sculptures and wall art from some tattoo artist trying to show how edgy he was. I know it has a different cultural significance in Ecuador than in other places, but I felt like plenty of others had done it before and much better. Infrequently interesting and definitely not for kids or your grandma.
  • Was closed both times when it should have been open
