Interesting museum to see how luxurious living in a cave can actually be. If you come by car, stay until the mini van groups are gone and you basically have the place to yourself.

This museum consists of 7 caves recreated as they would be when people lived in them. A real insight into that way of life, with great explanations in 5 languages. Plus a great game den space with the most stunning views across to Tejeda. Plus...More

This little museum consists of seven cave houses set up with a variety of functions like kitchen, sleeping chambers, etc. Great to see the inside of a cave house, and a nice place to cool down. Entrance is free. Takes 25-30 minutes to tour completely.

If you come to Artenara, it makes sense to visit this small museum - one of key attractions here. It is free, but you are welcome to leave something to recognise the efforts to maintain this museum. There are several rooms in separate caves -...More

Overlooking stunning views over the mountains and valleys of central Gran Canaria lies this little museum. Entrance is free but the enthusiastic owner/guide pleads very nicely for a contribution for the upkeep. There are information leaflets in many different languages with nice descriptions of the...More
