Attraction details
Owner description: This Museum´s permanent exhibition, in Casa Lercaro, is a journey through the history of the island, with the emphasis placed on the main economic and social milestones of the last few centuries. Inconclusive and provisional, as any representation of history inevitably has to be, this exhibition is, however, a synthetic approach to the social and cultural dimensions of the island’s past and of how it fits into the dynamics of the history of European expansion.

We were interested in the history of tenerife and tought the museum would be a nice place to find out how it became what it now is. There are audioguides in several languages. (On your mobile with wifi) but the written information was only in spanish .... its not that they had no space for english or whatever they would like to have as an 2nd language .... they just didnt do it .... it was a great disapointment. De audioguides were not helpfull either. We could have sat on a bench infront of the museum and listen to the audioguide. It would be better than standing in the museum like an idiot with you mobile on your ear. Sorry plz write it in english.

We enjoyed looking at the exhibits. The staff were very friendly & proudly showed off two restored carriages. However, this is not an interactive museum, so as long as you like reading about the exhibits, but not touching, you'll be fine. I did love being inside such an old building, with lovely courtyard.

A very interesting small museum. The iPhone commentary adds to this. The 2 young women in reception were exceptional in their help and information. Real ambassadors for the museum and for Tenerife.

Great place. Need to speak Spanish to fully appreciate it. If you use the audio guide on your iPhone then take care. The position in the museum on not accurate and if you accidentally touch the screen it means you have to start again. The only downside.
