The Museum of Nature and Man has organised a modern museum exhibition project to present the investigation and conservation work conducted over the decades by the Museum of Natural Science and the Archaeological Museum of Tenerife. The result offers an insight into the natural wealth of the Canary Islands on the one hand, and on the other, it is a chance to discover the largest existing collection on the Guanche culture. The Guanches are the aboriginal people that inhabited Tenerife before the arrival of the first European conquerors.

This was ok but honestly everything was in Spanish there was nothing in English, we still had a look around but would have enjoyed it more if we knew what we were looking at.

Expectations were unfortunately too high. Otherwise this is a very informative museum that reveals all aspects of the history (human and natural) of the Canary Islands. Unfortunately, only the first geological part of the museum is equipped with explanations in English, all other are exclusively...More

The entrance fee of 4€ is reasonable considering the size and number of exhibits. They also have a beautiful atrium and a separate exhibit on how the islands were formed volcanically.

This museum is packed full of information and exhibits about volcanoes, geology, the Canaries, wildlife and the Guanches. Unfortunately most of it is in Spanish. I bought the audio guide because I'd read this thinking it would fill in the gaps. It didn't. It just...More

Lots of interesting things for adults and children alike. Kept us busy for a couple of hours plus a visit to the cafe. There was a paper guide available for 1 Euro plus a plastic card in each room to explain things in other languages....More

Labeling of the exhibits is only in Spanish, although explanation cards are available in other languages, these do not contain translations as much as summaries. If you can, time your visit for after 4pm on Friday or Saturday, when there is no entrance fee, which...More

Wonderful exhibits but would be 100% improved by translations into other languages. My schoolgirl knowledge of the language just wasnt enough.

No English captions (though why should they, I know), some of the materials and presentation look a bit dated, and there's more representations of the natural history than actual samples. It's not a bad museum, but it was billed in the guidebook as one of...More

Faced with some Uk style weather - i.e. rather cold and very wet, we opted to cut short our sightseeing and visit this museum earlier than we had intended. It is very good, very reasonable in cost and apart from the lack of signage in...More

There is very little English signage you can get an audio tour but it is an extra charge. Exhibits are uninspiring stuffed animals and broken pottery. Didn't inspire us at all, go to the military museum it is free and much better
