I liked this museum, which told the history of the indigenous people of Tenerife, the Guanches. The museum also told the whole history of Tenerife. You can also find some mummies from the time before the Spanish conquered the island and destroyed the Guanche culture.

The exhibits are amazing at this museum. The only issue we did have was the exhibit information was written only in spanish. There were english and other language fact sheets at the door of each room however, these do not engage children well.

The museum was quite interesting. The receptionist instructed us about the audio tracks availlable via wifi, but we didn't have earphones with us so we missed those. And we didn't realize there were leaflets in english summarising the info about each room, until I read...More
