I went with my little sister (12) and even though it's a very little museum, it has a lot of interesting information and amazing bones of a lot of native species. Worth the price (not expensive).

You have to look hard for this museum. It presents an interesting aspect of looking at the animals that live in Ecuador. $2.00 gets you in to a rather musty room, full of skeletons. I would rate it higher, but it is somewhat neglected. But...More

We tried valiantly to find this museum. We had a new map of attractions from the tourism office, which shows this museum. However, in the neighborhood, we asked close to a dozen people who lived or was working in the area, but no one knew...More

Mildly amusing and slightly macabre little museum of skeletons of native Ecuadorian fauna (+ a baby elephant). I'm a biologist, I found it interesting. $2 to get in - probably only a 20-30 minute visit though.
