  • Very likable free guide (spanish), he didn't know everything but was honest about it. We were let in close to closingtime and allowed in "closed" areas. You are free to roam and take pictures. Sadly the use of the Metzger telescope was or is no longer possible in the evenings like it was before. The view from Quito's oldest park at the top of the observatory is lovely. Must see.
  • An very interesting place
  • Interesting historical building lacks maintenance.
  • Ok
  • Good place for learning to stars.
