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

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...More
