Owner description: Everybody who wants to experience Tenerife just outside of mass tourism, is able to find a worthwhile goal - very close to the Centre of Icod de los Vinos. The small town with its old and historic towncentre is also known for the Millenary Dragon Tree, the Drago Milenario, which is located approximately three kilometres from ARTlandya. In Santa Barbara, a district of Icod de los Vinos, with quiet, rural ambience, you will find ARTlandya - la Finca. It is an estate with a tropical Park and old, stylishly renovated Canarian houses with different exhibitions. Besides, it is no TOY MUSEUM and no private collection of dolls of all kind. We show you the fascinating world of dollART! ARTlandya is also no dusty museum in the customary sense but dollART from today in rooms from yesterday. Artistdolls and teddy bears on Tenerife? But why not? Tenerife exists not only of nature - the island also offers a lot of culture! ARTlandya is unique in whole Europe - it is a museum for contemporary dollART at the highest international level! A world of experience with DOLLS and TEDDYbears, a world for children and adults!

On arrival, my partner, our autistic daughter and myself were warmly greeted by Georg, into an exquisite world of dolls and teddies. The museum is breath taking, set in magnificent gardens full of beautiful plants,shrubs and fruit trees.
Many of the exhibits are 'one of a kind' that you will not see anywhere else in the world or 'limited editions.' by numerous artists.
Once we looked around at our leisure, Georg gave us a guided tour which, only enhanced an already magical day.
The dolls beauty are beyond words and set out so you don't miss a thing. Princesses, beggars, Queen of the elves, dolls from around the world, just so many to mention.
Georg even showed us how they are made, his knowledge is fantastic and so eager to share it with you.
A truly magical world and such a kind, wonderful host.
Thank you for such a magnificent experience and for taking that extra special time with my daughter.

The most interesting and exciting experience that we had in Tenerife was visting the doll Museum from Icod de los Vinos, a city known by the tourists because of the quaint Drago Milenario tree. However, for me, seeing that tree which represents a symbol of longetivity, was only a must-see that we checked on the islandmap. It was impressive yet not overwhelming.
The Doll Musuem represented a totally different experience. We met two wonderful people, Georg and Ingrid Taupe who introduced to the unique art dolls world. The collection contains over 300 dolls in different sizes, with a huge variety of facial expressions and made from different materials. We have from a doll with a huge smile to another who is just about to burn into tears. We have princesses and we have beggers.
Their artistical value is incommensurable. Many of them are one of a kind or from limited series and made by famous artists.
: The returning to childhood is even more fantastic, since the museum is situated in an old pictureque farm, with a huge tropical garden that will make you hold your breath.
If you add to all of these an absolutely faulous landscape with a land full of grass beyond which the ocean appears, you obtain a perfect holiday cocktail. We thank our guests for this unforgettable experience.
