We went here because of reviews on trip advisor. I had never heard of Manuela Saenz before, but our guide was excellent and told us the story of someone who could be called Simon Bolivar's right hand 'man'. I was intrigued enough that I bought a book on Amazon.com to read more about her.

I did a report on her for university so was very excited when i found out there was a museum. It was more expensive than I was thinking, but my whole family thought itw as worth it! It doesn't only have information on 'La Libertadora del Libertador', btu also on Bolivar himself, other heros of the independence wars, a firearms collection, a money collection, and the list goes on. Our guide was amazing.

Our museum guide did a magnificent job of bringing to life an era of Latin American history that most North Americans know little to nothing about. Manuela Saenz seems to have been a most interesting woman. It's too bad the museum doesn't sell at least a little booklet about her life in English.

I'm a student here in Quito and because of my study I was interested in this museum. I want to be a nacional tourguide in Ecuador and so this was very interesting.
I've been to several places (of course) but this was one of the best I've ever been. Well not one of the best, THE BEST. Not only because of the good explenation and the displays of all the things they have also because of the feeling that it gave to me afterwords. Not only left the museum with knowledge improved, I left the museum with a feeling, a kind of sympathy or admiration for Manuela and the others who were with here at that time. For me it is very important to have a certain feeling with the history of Ecuador because thats fundamental for my profesion... I can assure everyone that that is exactly what I got and needed.. Feel like I have visit an old friend.....
