If you like contemporary arts and anthropology, you would enjoy this museum as much as we do.

The museum is full of art works which are fun to browse through. It also share the history which is fun to watch

If you HAVE to find something to do to kill time in Guayaquil then you can wander here. The staff is poor. The collection is not traveller friendly. It's hot and musty throughout.There's not much of interest to see, however in a city of NOTHING TO DO OR SEE, this is about all you have to choose from.

The ancient cultures of the Ecuadorian Coast are often overshadowed by the dramatic cultures of the Andes. Regardless, the Pre-Colombian cultures of the Pacific Coast in Ecuador were just as lively and artistic.

This museum has a large and extensive collection of ancient figures, pots, bowls, etc. from a variety of ancient coastal civilizations and tribes. Signage is lacking and some displays are incredibly cluttered by nonetheless it's a unique museum in Ecuador.

Other exhibits offer contemporary art exhibitions from Ecuadorians and other Latin American artists.

The building is air-conditioned providing relief from the heat and is located at the foot of Las Peñas

No entrance fee.

I agree with a previous review - the air conditioning was much appreciated, and the displays seemed very comprehensive. The contemporary art was unusual, and it's an interesting space. We were a bit 'museumed' out when we got there, but you could easily spend a lot of time viewing the exhibits.
