Overview
More
The Museum of Nature and Man has organised a modern museum exhibition project to present the investigation and conservation work conducted over the decades by the Museum of Natural Science and the Archaeological Museum of Tenerife. The result offers an insight into the natural wealth of the Canary Islands on the one hand, and on the other, it is a chance to discover the largest existing collection on the Guanche culture. The Guanches are the aboriginal people that inhabited Tenerife before the arrival of the first European conquerors.

Fantastic exhibition of mummies and a fair collection of plants, animals and archeological artefacts. The curatation is very interesting and modern, but only few things are told in other language than spanish.

It is an artificial divide between nature and society - good data on the archeology of the aboriginal population of Canary Islands, excellent information about botany and zoology of the archipelago. Missing the link between the two - the use of the land and the...More

Using the hop on/hop off buses this is one of the stop points on the route. I must say we had hoped to find this of real interest, both being geology geeks. However as a popular tourist place the museum didn't really cater for multinational...More

A rather big museum with a somewhat confusing layout. Most of the information is in Spanish, very little in English. Still a nice place to take school children on a rainy day.
