The Cancebi de Manta Ethnographic Municipal Museum is situated in the old Hotel Aragones, a building worked in 1908 that was one of the principal lodgings in the city. The name "Cancebi" speaks to geologically the focal segment of the bank of Manabi, possessed by the Senorio de Cancebi. These regions of Cancebi, as indicated by the primary Chroniclers of the Indies who ventured to every part of the zone, were shaped by places like Manta, Jocay, Montecristi, Jaramijo, Cerro de Hojas, Cerro Jaboncillo, Portoviejo, Jipijapa, and Charapot.
The Municipal Museum Ethnographic Cancebi demonstrates general society, through ethnographic items, the life of the campesino, montubio and cholo angler manabita. It has seven presentation corridors, a verifiable file, multipurpose room and craftsman shop.
