“Reopened”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

The museum has now reopened but unfortunately is closed on Monday, the only day that I had free - so I wasn't able to visit it.

“Museum of Anthropology and Contemporary Art is a Winner”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

This museum is small, but it takes time to go through all the exhibits. One floor offers snapshots of the various ecosystems and the peoples that live in it and how they lived. The other floor is dedicated to contemporary art and you're introduced to a standard exhibit featuring the native experience in the face of the Spanish arrival, plus additional exhibits from other artists. Most of the work is a real win.

“Excellent Museum- Recently Damaged by Rains- March 2013”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

Excellent museum that has a great local collection of pre-Colombian artifacts and frequently rotating displays of all times of art. It also has a theatre that presents international movies or concerts. Recent rains have ruined-warped the flooring so it may be closed for the next several months.

“Excellent Museum”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We have visited museums in Peru to see Inca remains, but the presentation has been done extremely well, and I think even better here in Guayaquil. The exhibitioh contains artefacts from 10,000 years ago, and is well documented. Also the Contemparty Art exhibition is well worth a look.
