  • Very scenic attraction and well worth a visit.It is a pity that there are no guides,and you find your way by reading a hand book.Lovely place and admission is free.What more do you need 
  • Very interesting and a member of staff asks your preferred language and gives you a guide book which you give back on the way out. It detailed well all the exhibits and guided you round the ground flo...  more »
  • It is worth visiting it. Outside and inside. But don't expect too much. The collection is limited, with one person mummified (or mirlada,) according to the local terms and some mannequins with period costumes. The most important are the explanatory panels, which serve to understand a little better the prehistory and history of the island. The Museum is at the level of the rest of cultural facilities of Lanzarote. I guess there is no more resources to do a more sophisticated Museum treatment, or to translate the explanations into languages other than Spanish.

  • We only saw this fortress from the outside, and it has a great ancient atmosphere to it. Good for tourist photoshoots too, and enough space to breathe - a big difference to the city.
  • Quite a surprise. Really great museum. Learned a lot about local history of Lanzarote and the Canary islands.
  • Some local places to visit. Good to pass the time or a day visit.
  • Should be called Castilleto or something. Doesn't deserve the name "castle". It's tiny!
  • A small but interesting Castle. On the reef, I remember constant from times past that contrasts with the modernity of the city. Inside there is a mini free Museum, so it is no more enter.
