archeological museumWe found this archeological museum after we decided to check out the beautiful School of Medicine building on Dose de Abril near Solano Ave. We were drawn to check this place out because of the grand columns that line the entranceway. We were not expecting to find a museum, but there it was. The Archaeological Museum of the University of Cuenca is very small, but it contains some beautiful ancient artifacts. Some are several thousands of years old. In the courtyard instead of having downspouts for the rain to come down to the ground, they used heavy taunt chains for the water to follow so that it finds its way to the ground gently.
