Best for History - Expert review of Museum of Man and Nature

The Canary Islands - from their explosive creation to the present day.

Three vast floors of exhibits and interactive displays chronicle the Canarian Archipelago. Beginning with their volcanic origins and unique micro-climates, the museum takes visitors through the islands' population by their first known inhabitants, the Guanche, their conquest by Spain and their modern development.

The museum has exhibits that cover the accumulated knowledge of generations in the history, geography, climate, flora, fauna and anthropology of the islands.

Price advice: 

Entrance is 3 euros. It's free on Sundays.

Expert tips: 
You'll need several hours and comfy shoes to do justice to a visit.
The highlight for all teenagers and most people is the macabre collection of Guanche mummies on the top floor.
