There is an excellent audio tour available (connect your smartphone to their free WiFi and perhaps bring headphones) in various languages. I used English; the pace was very nice. A mix of Canadian history, culture, development, and an outstanding art display but
the interior of this beautifully restored building itself is worth a visit alone. There are 2 old horse drawn coaches in a room off the garden area which are in amazing original condition.

The building is the real star here - it has been beautifully restored and offers a great vision of wealthy life in the Canary islands. Add to this interesting exhibits covering the history of the islands and the life of the inhabitants over the last 500 years and this makes for a very worth while visit. The best of the local museums for my money. Admission was free.

Not much here but a few things like Columbus ship models and a huge cannon are unique. The building itself is of interest. Free entry, too!

An interesting museum within a beautiful old house which has been nicely restored. Though the exhibits are described in Spanish an English guide was available and an app for the phone. The exhibits were all interesting with some great photographs. Worth a visit and then stroll down the road to view some imposing old buildings.

You can't spend an afternoon in this colonial gem of a city without learning about its rich past. This is the place. The building itself is a restored mansion.

It's an interesting museum, but 2 things need to be realised for tourists. Firstly, it's primarily aimed at children, and secondly almost all of the instructions for the many hands on demonstrations are in Spanish - which is fair enough. I come from a science type background, and it was hard enough to figure things out, so I'm not sure that a family of tourists would enjoy it so much

A cool little museum in a historical building in La Laguna. The information is in Spanish only but you can connect to the wireless in the museum to access an audio tour with many narrated stops in the museum from your phone. I would suggest bringing headphones to make the information easier to hear. Definitely very interesting information on the history and development of Tenerife. An educational and affordable way to spend an hour and a half in La Laguna.

This is a museum in the Casa Lercaro and its tells the history about Tenerife and its indigenous people. The collections were well displayed and gave an informative knowledge of the island. I had an audio phone application at my mobile, which told me about the items of the museum.

I managed to pop into this historical building and photograph the very pretty inner courtyard without paying or viewing any of the exhibits, as most of the rooms seemed to be locked. Worth having a look at.
