    This has sections on the history of cheese - I never knew there were so many patterns and types or how it was used to ensure trade. There are also sections on the flora and fauna of the islands, inclu...  more »

    We stopped off to visit here, it's a nice small museum. Tells a bit of history. But the route up was worth the trip if you're in caleta it's worth it.  more »

    For the Canaries, it is something that you should see and know, is a small museum but it is worth watch it and enjoy it, since it reveals many questions about cheeses.

  • A cheese museum where you cannot buy or taste or even smell the cheese. There are no goats, only fake cheese, no staff on site other then to take a couple of euro from you. This seems like European Union money spent on a local initiative. And the only real profit is made by the company who build this. Why not make a good shop etc there aswell in season?
  • Needs more interaction and information. Would have been good to have a cheese tasting at the end but sadly they don't do that!
  • STOP!!!! Before we start is really important to understand this is certainly more about the life of the island (Fuerteventura) than just cheese. We was really surprised about how much there was to see as do at the museum, from milking virtual goats, to understanding the way the islands were born all those million of years ago. The landmark is the windmill which resides in the garden and you are free to explore it along with the cactus gardens. Finally this is the cheapest museum I've ever had to pay to enter, in 2016 an adult price was just €2 and with everything that it offers is exceptional value.
  • The kids love this place, mainly due to its interactive display. Parents can appreciate not only the merits of the display, but also the location of this museum - a very well maintained and clean garden! I recommend visiting this site!
  • Lovely buildings, but you must need to really love goats, oh yeah & windmills
