Well kept museum with multimedia experiences. The natural and animal part of the museum is very well detailed but the human part is lacking a lot of guanche history, but maybe that wasn't the scope of the museum.
At only €3.50 for non resident OAP's it is very good value. It is well laid out and very informative especially when you have worked out where to get the English translations( these are the white cards in boxes on the wall for each section)....More

We spent more than hour here, but - as many said - we would spend much more if the informations were in English. There is, however, a free english speaking smartphone app, but in this case I would recommend you bring your headphones with you.
Now don't get me wrong the Guanche mummies are fantastic. The information is all in spanish. This can be translated with an android app but the feel is more for locals than for visitors. Also tucked away in a side room. I am really interested...More
