Guayaquil and the Pacific Coast Sights

Museo Municipal de Guayaquil

Updated 06/22/2011

Fodor's Review

While the Municipal Museum of Guayaquil has many interesting archaeological exhibits, the biggest draw is a collection of tsantsas, or shrunken heads. Artifacts from indigenous peoples here include beadwork, feather work, tools, and weapons. In the lobby is an unusual 8½-meter (28-foot) totem with 32 vertical figures. Your passport is required for admission, only so an attendant can compile data about who visits and from where.
