As other reviewers have said, some of the displays are a bit out of date, but nonetheless, it is a good pace to go to learn a bit more about the plantain growing industry. Then go for a stroll around Tazacorte, enjoy the views and have a bite to eat.

An interesting small museum. Lots of information boards but needs to be updated as it only goes up to early 2000.

Everything you ever wanted to know about bananas but were afraid to ask. In a delightful setting, with a colonial plantation feel, the main industry of the island is explained in detail. Recommended.

Visited the banana museum as bananas are a very bit part of La Palma. Well kept and very interesting little museum and at a cost of only €2 it’s well worth a visit. I bought a bag of the dried bananas which were delicious!

Well laid out little museum showing the history of bananas on La Palma - lots to read so not that good for children and they miss out by not having a bigger gift shop selection of things

Everything you wanted to know about bananas. Mainly display information, not many exhibits, but in English and very interesting.

There is parking (down a steep road) quite close to the museum housed in a quaint building (timber balconies and beams) and entrance fee is only 2euros. The senor on duty at reception is very pleasant and helpful. A range of excellent local products, reasonably priced are on sale at reception (sugarfree banana jam, banana crisps - almost oil free and good quality mojos).

Banana plantations abound in La Palma and it was an interesting one hour visit to learn more about plantation construction/growth/development, the different varieties of bananas, trade and the ensuing politics. Political and banana trade struggle is well-documented.

Good views of the sea, plantations and the town of Tazacorte from the balconies.

Probably the best two euro's you can spend in Tazacorte. Great insight into the islands history. Plenty of information in Spanish and English. A great way to while away an hour before lunch.

It's a beautiful location. There isn't a lot to see in the museum but it's only €2 each so well worth a stroll around if you're in the area.

Small local museums dedicated to one subject are often the best. Here everything that needs to be told about bananas and the industry on the islands is shown in fascinating detail without wearying the visitor. Details of history, cultivation and industry and impact on the society of La Palma and the other islands beautifully displayed. Lots of information on healthy properties of bananas, pests and diseases and the world wide trade described. Climate, geology and volcanic processes also feature. The museum is housed in a charming historic property surrounded by lovely gardens, in the heart of this pleasant town. Opening hours vary so do check before you go.
