Sadly, it was a holiday and we were unable to go inside. Once again, we thoroughly enjoyed the outside and architecture along with the history our guide was able to provide.

There is no entrance fee for this attraction. I was just surprised to see about 7 young women seated at the Front Desk, none of whom speaks English. I was asked to show my ID, copy of my passport was fine. An English- speaking guide accompanied me in the tour. He explained the history of the house, Sucre and his... More

Museo Casa de Sucre was not crowded at all (August 2016) and earned a Very Good Rating from me based on the layout/exhibits and allowing photography inside. You can visit the rooms in less than an hour and it is easily located in the central historic district. Super friendly staff.

this beautiful home has been converted to a museum, but there is not a lot to see. Admission is free, which is nice, and some of the views from the upstairs windows are pretty, but the museum is just ho-hum

Sucre built this structure well over a century ago, and it's worth seeing if only for its intrinsic beauty. But I also enjoyed the stories of how the use of the building evolved, as well as the lives of the well-to-do. There is a lot of information--but only in Spanish. But enough written to make some good guesses.

I loved the architecture of the museum. It is a free walking tour. I had my tour in Spanish. I'm not sure if they offer tours in English. I personally loved to hear about Sucre. He was such an important figure in South America. Without Sucre, Bolivar may have been defeated.

This museum only allows visitors in with a tour guide. I think the tour guides are local college students. The woman seemed very knowledgeable about the building but she only spoke Spanish so I had a hard time following along.

My wife and I visited this Museum home last year and were given a very lively and interesting tour of the home by a knowledgeable young lady who spoke with great passion, in Spanish, but at a pace that made it possible to understand most of what she said, occasionally interjecting English explanations to ensure that we understood well.

Though the exhibits are in Spanish, they are interesting enough but the treasure here is really the bundling itself and the courtyard. Such a peaceful place in the middle of the busy city.
