The institution conserves and exhibits archaeological and ethnographic items, and special mention should be made of its collection of more than 2,000 prehistoric sculls. It also has a library and archive specialising in themes related to the Canary Islands. Open since 1984, its collection centres on the pre-hispanic cultures of the Canary Islands, making this a visit not to be missed by all those interested in the field.
