  • A very interesting museum. You should probably go there if you're passing by the middle of the world which is a must-see. On the first floor it is the replica of the ancient Sun Temple and the second and third floor it has paintings of Ortega who reconstructed this place and he always comes on Saturdays and Sundays so be sure to see him. They also give you a coca leaf tea drink.
  • Its a great tour arround a replica of an old templo, it only stores Ortega's art pieces, the tour is fun and of course they try to make you buy stuff
  • Great experience in the solar museum
  • Awesome amazing experience!
  • A must see when visiting the Center of the World!
