Decided to go here on an off chance as struggling for activities. Fantastic quirky museum which was free and offered a good experience for an hour. Full of information, you are easily taken back to the beginning of the early tourist adventure.

Often pass this on way to or from Airport. Drop in check opening hours 10.00 to 14.00. But worth the visit. Very helpful enthusiastic staff. Gives history of flight in the Canaries. Good parking and free entrance
