    On this tour you will explore 2 of the main museums in Quito well known as Capilla del hombre (Men´s Chapel) at Guayasamin Museum and Central Bank Museum located at la Mariscal area This tour will start at your hotel at 9:00 am, we will take you to Guayasamin Museum located at Bellavista hill ( Quito´s Natural Viewpoint ) , Oswaldo Guayasamin was the most important painter from XX Century , he worked all over the world and he started his own collection than later he opened as a museum , when was still alived. by now there is an special building , that was his dream for many years , it is well known as la capilla de hombre where some of his work is exposed. Unfortunately he only saw the starting of his dream because he died at the US before the building was finished. In simple words this place is the best modern art and conteporary museum in Ecuador. After this visit we can add a delicious lunch in a local restaurant ( please let us know in advance ) Then we will go to visit another wonderful museum in Quito called Central Bank has a complete route, from the vestiges of the first inhabitants of Ecuador until the contemporary and modern art expositions In this first archaeological room there are pieces of pre-Inca cultures exposed: basic tools of stone and obsidian that are replaced with the most elaborate stone and ceramic utensils over time. From this period, very elaborate pieces are exhibited, especially ceramic. They are expressions of the past represented in sculptures, masks and ritual tools that tell us about their way of thinking, seeing the world and living. In the same way and exhibition in the different Inca artifacts. The Spanish conquest will come and with them the establishment of the Colony, this next room talks about Quitena Art school developed by locals and Spaniards . This was the time of great artistic production, creating a syncretism between the Spanish Catholic and the mythical indigenous. Numerous paintings and sculptures of Jesus, virgins and saints populate this part of the exhibition. The next and final exhibition refers the republican art when the country was born as Republic on 1830 , the reflection of a time of political changes and struggles for independence. And little by little, the exhibition turn out to contemporary and modern art. This is a great museum to learn more about the Ecuadorian history by art. Finally we will take you back to your hotel
