We visited the house and the museum and got complimentary tours at both. I didn't know anything about Guayasamin prior to the visit, so I appreciated the tour to understand what I was looking at. A great day trip.

it's pretty out of the way up some steep hills. get a taxi, it's a cheap fare and a difficult walk, especially if it's hot.
