Museo Canario (Canarian Museum) Tours and Activities

Museo Canario (Canarian Museum)
The Museo Canario (Canarian Museum) houses the most complete archeological collection in the Canary Islands. Its permanent exhibition can trace its beginnings to the founding of the museum in 1879 and consists of an impressive range of artefacts devoted to the original inhabitants of the Canaries (the Guanches).

Visitors are invited to develop an understanding of how these early humans lived as the exhibition leads you through 11 rooms displaying mummies, skeletons, jewelry, pottery, statues and other items that played an important role in the Guanches lives from the second half of the first millennium BC to the 15th century. Displays include scale models of their dwellings and a replica of the Cueva Pintada (Painted Caves) at Gáldar.

Museo Canario's library is extensive – so much so it is divided into four separate libraries! The Canarian Library alone holds the largest existing collection of printed material about the Canary Islands. A restoration and expansion project is currently underway to house its collection.

Practical Info
