We were only allowed to see 5 rooms for "free" which was fine. They housed modern art exhibits and some art from the convent era itself. Nothing really special, but was interesting and we were walking by.

It is a good thing that this important landmark has been preserved and restored. It deserves all the attention it has received. And it deserves a few hours of time for anyone interested in Cuenca's history.

A lovely tour of 20 rooms filled with items of daily living and religious items from the hundreds of years of being a convent. Peaceful garden courtyards provided a good respite from the traffic noise of the neighborhood.

The Museo del Monasterio de las Conceptas (Convent Museum) has a very non-descriptive entrance. It’s amazing the size of the monastery behind the doors (taking up almost an entire city block). The museum will enlighten you to the life and customs of the nuns in a monastery that was founded in 1599. They have life-size dioramas that show the daily life of the sisters. The collection of religious artifacts and art is amazing.
They even have a selection of toys that were brought in by the girls (young as 12) that were entering the convent. It’s nice that the signs are also in English, so you have the opportunity to learn about the lives of the nuns. The entrance fee was $2.50, and the museum entrance is on Hermano Miguel between Juan Jaramillo and Presidente Cordova.

Interesting to walk though an old convent that has been partially restored. It's worth the $3.00 to absorb what was occurring in the religion so long ago. As I understand it there are still nun's living there, although we did not see any.
