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 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...More

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.

We were lucky as the entrance is free on Friday afternoons, but we were a bit disappointed as we would have expected to learn more about the history, economy about the islands. This is a small museum, in a charming house, with things on display...More
