Museum of CIDAP and Museum of Modern Art
Like the Ethnographic Museum, these museums also serve as monuments to Ecuador’s heritage. Run by the Inter-American Center of Artisans, which also puts on various events throughout the year, the Museum of CIDAP (Inter-American Center of Popular Arts) has celebrated the art of Ecuador for 40 years. With pottery, woodwork, musical instruments, textiles and folk art, this museum has a fun mix of it all. The Center promotes culture, expression and the preservation of the knowledge of artisanry. Similarly, the Museum of Modern Art exhibits the new movements of art in Ecuador, a continuation of the arts of the past.
