  • At first glance, it impresses the architecture of the House with the Moorish air. Small Presley Norton Museum named after the archaeologist who donated the beautiful and valuable pieces in pre-Columbian of Guayaquil and littoral of Ecuador culture pottery. That ultimately personally was what most liked and was impressed. Also in the House develops cultural activities and at the time of my visit an exhibition of the architect Rene Bravo Espinoza. Photos without flash are allowed. It is located in Av. October 9 near the Malecón del Salado. Free entry, I didn't Guide, only a very friendly receptionist who retains identity card to enter and a guard.

  • Beautiful archeological collection in a very nice house. Very recommended site for those who love the history of the railway from Ecuador, vehicles and of course archaeology.
