Museum of Modern Art - Museum Cuenca - Ecuador

The Museo Municipal de Arte Moderno (the Museum of Modern Art), on the Plaza San Sebastián, has a permanent collection of contemporary paintings and sculptures. The artwork is displayed in separate rooms and within the gardens, spread around two delightful courtyards. The buildings were previously a casa de la temperancia (house of temperance), a treatment center used for the rehabilitation of alcoholics. After years of neglect and general deterioration, the buildings were beautifully restored as a national monument. Photographs showing this are displayed within a separate exhibition. Well worth a visit. Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-5:30 pm., Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
