Your visit to Tulipe wouldn´t be complete without a 45 minute guided visit to the delightful and well-presented Museum (Museo del Sitio de Tulipe) which opened in 2007. Here you’ll learn how the Yumbo culture contained elements of both Andean and tropical cultures and see examples of their unusual ceramic pitchers with either square or concave external bases, a design hitherto unknown in Ecuador.
There may also be an opportunity to view crafts stalls, where local people sell their exquisite handicrafts made from local, natural products.
The museum is open Mon-Sun. 9-4.
