Your Travel Experience with Galapagos PRO

Visit of the Museo de Bahía

Galapagos PRO recommendation: This excursion should not be missed in your Ecuador experience.

After the motherhouse of the Banco Central in Quito, the museum of Bahía is the best museum in Ecuador - perhaps even better structured than the capital's larger collection. The permanent and sensational exhibit at the archaeological museum begins with 11,000 year old Las Vegas culture tools, the oldest pieces ever found in Ecuador. With 600 installations and an archive of 2,500 exhibits, Museo de Bahía leads through all the pre-Incan eras of today's Ecuador. The focus is on the cultures of Cara, Jama, and Coaque.

The museum opened in 2001, is very well lit and even allows photography.

Note: We are happy to organize this tour for you or you may arrange it on your own.
