  • Great for people who like the macabre, very creative decoration allows visitors to relax and get out of the everyday, has a selection of very good music on sale. Not to be missed on your visit to Cuenca.

  • This exhibition is worth a visit although not a real 'must see'. A lot of skeletons and skulls, some weird paintings and statues and a small bar/cafe. If you want a picture of yourself in a coffin or ...  more »

  • 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.
  • Varies wildly in quality, but an interesting museum. They encourage photos which makes it even more fun.
  • Wow, such great artwork! You can look for hours!
  • Something unique! A great artist who made everything you need there. It is not a style for everyone, but there is no doubt that is very interesting and fun.

  • The forbidden is that place where all who like extreme, dark and bizarre art you will feel well. A relaxing atmosphere to enjoy a coffee or a beer with friends or alone, in the middle of skulls, murals, paintings and extravagant sculptures. Visit it even for curiosity. Highly recommended
