Museo en Miniatura 'Guayaquil en la Historia'


This whimsical museum takes visitors on a breezy journey through Guayaquil's history, with elaborate miniature sets that relate key events over the past 500 years (including pirate attacks, devastating fires, revolutionary fervor and more recent but equally bold revitalization projects). The whole tour takes about 45 minutes, and is available in English.
