Museo De Ciencias Naturales - Museum Ambato - Ecuador

One side of Parque Cevallos is taken up by the imposing Instituto Tecnol├│gico Superior Bol├şvar, which houses the city's rambling Science museum. This engrossing museum, which was inaugurated in 1920, has a diverse assortment of displays, including coins and medals (including macuquinas, hammered coins from the 16th century), 20th century photographs of Ecuadorian landscapes, indigenous musical instruments, a ceramic collection dating back to 700 A.C., human fetuses and skeletons, and a large collection of stuffed animals, with species from Ecuador's four ecosystems: Galapagos, coast, Andes, and Amazon.
