  • A very interesting museum. You should probably go there if you're passing by the middle of the world which is a must-see. On the first floor it is the replica of the ancient Sun Temple and the second and third floor it has paintings of Ortega who reconstructed this place and he always comes on Saturdays and Sundays so be sure to see him. They also give you a coca leaf tea drink.
  • Nice experience. For 3$ admission fee, you get to visit the museum, view Ortega Malia's works and go through aroma room and all. Also free hot cocoa tea at the end.
  • Absolutely beautiful paintings and sculptures. We got a demonstration how the artist finger painted something in under 2 mins.
  • Simply the best place to visit in the middle of the world
  • Its a great tour arround a replica of an old templo, it only stores Ortega's art pieces, the tour is fun and of course they try to make you buy stuff
