a nice museum, from the building itself to the exhibition about the history of the island, with displays and exhibits. the combined entrace ticket is also valid for the Museo Insular in Santa Cruz.

We enjoyed the re-creation of the dwellings of the islands’ indigenous inhabitants: living at a Neolithic level when reached by Europeans in the 15th c., they were conquered and enslaved by the Spanish. DNA research suggests that the male population was almost wiped out and the female population assimilated. The museum is attractively laid out and the exhibits are interesting. Well worth a visit.

Interesting museum about the original inhabitants of the Island of la Palma. If you are a history buff, you should definitely go here. It is in the heart of Los Llanos, your visit can be easily combined with other points of interest in the city.

A spaceship of a building, this modern design contrasts with its content;the early history of the first people on the Island - which predates Stonehenge.
Interesting displays, that could benefit from more of an explanation. We particularly liked the reconstruction, and design of the original inhabitants stone huts.
Some of the significance of the exhibits passed us by - probably due to the language barrier.
Worth visiting.

Discovered this ultra-modern museum while strolling about on Sunday morning. Very well designed and tells the historical story of La Palma extremely well in panels which have English text. Just the right amount..no overload. This is complemented by physical examples of caves, etc. If you have been out walking on the trails especially in the Cumbre Veija and seen stone formations, this museum will reveal all.
So sad that the civilisation was wiped out, but man's inhumanity to man has been demonstrated in so many other places.
If you are over 65 you are admitted for free.

The archaeological museum housed in a modern building is in Los Llanos within walking distance from the old part of the town. 4 euros entrance fee gives you access to the Museo Insular (worth a visit) in Santa Cruz as well. No charge for seniors but evidence required.

Reception staff welcoming and enthusiastic. The exhibition area on the upper floor is accessed by a gentle ramp. Clean bathrooms.

This permanent exhibition is about the Guanches/Benahoaritas, the original settlers of La Palma.The video, exhibits and displays give an interesting insight into the habitat, houses, industries and culture (very good art work) of the original settlers. The visit is less than an hour and most certainly worth having on one's itinerary.

There is a gift shop on the ground floor.

Good displays and very informative. Learned a lot about the geology and formation of the island, together with the early history of the people. Beautiful simple building that complements the displays. Lots still to learn, would definitely visit again.

There is a lot of information and artefacts in a small space.
All the information is clear, concise and easy to understand.
Even I didn't get bored or muddled!
The admission ticket also gives entry to the Museo Insular in Santa Cruz.

A dusty layout of Benahoar artefacts in a card board decor with no appeal or educational value. Put up in a building of modern architecture, and lots of pretence, which promises a better content to the visitor. Very disappointing.
