Billed as an ethnographic museum this eclectic collection was assembled by a husband and his artist wife. Her imaginative and thought-provoking additions and juxtapositions enliven what could have been a rather dry assemblage of bygones. The museum fills every corner of an impressive old winery,...More

Nice little private museum located in San Bartolomeo. Privately owned and with an extensive collection of lanzarotean artifacts. N our visit we were the only people there which adds to its uniqueness.

Much too expensive and bad texts. The lights were off and a lot of rooms closed. There was no coherence and I didn't get into the sphere at all
