  • This place is awesome, but the hours I won't even update because this place is extremely undependable concerning when they are open. This, one might assume, is because of the capricious weather here, but that's not the case. It is just open when and if someone feels like it. It's extremely frustrating.
  • Interesting building to walk around. I wasn't able to go inside, maybe because it was a holiday. If youre going to be near this park, it's worth seeing for the architecture.
  • Great little museum. Awesome view from the observatory. Only $2 to enter and includes a guide. Worth visiting.
  • The Astronomical Observatory of Quito contains a piece of interesting history and the Merz telescope was designed in Munich, Germany in 1875, its historical value is very important because it is one of the oldest in Latin America and its Museum preserves some of the original instruments used by the second French GEODESIC mission between 1902 and 1914. The entrance has a cost of $2 and children under 8 years of age admitted free.
