Pre-hispanic culture in the Canary Islands
This museum is located in a building dating from the end of the 19th century. It is the largest centre devoted to Canary Islands culture on the archipelago.
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.
