The basics

Visitors can take a guided or self-guided tour of the Museo Canario’s 11 exhibit rooms to learn how the first inhabitants of the Canary Islands lived from the first millennium BC through the 15th century. You’ll explore models of traditional dwellings and villages, see idols and figurines thought to have religious importance, and view mummies from real funerary sites found on the island. The museum houses a large collection of skulls, bones, and full skeletons, which may not be suitable for small children.
