An attractive building with interesting exhibits
Sep 2020
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.

Some interesting Spanish navy and seafaring exhibits in English
Nov 2019
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!

Beautiful building
Oct 2019 • Couples
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.

Take in the history

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

An interesting little place
Apr 2019 • Couples
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.

An amazing museum about Tenerife
Mar 2019 • Solo
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.

Beautiful architecture

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.

Well Worth a Visit
Feb 2019 • Solo
The museum itself is interesting as it reveals the history of the islands in terms of their social and economic development over a long time frame. The courtyard of the building is very beautiful and the C18th family carriage a highlight.
