  • We enjoyed our walk along the harbour from our hotel to the museum. Even though there is only a limited collection of art to view we enjoyed our visit. The restaurant is very nice & has a lovely view ...  read more »
  • With the bike in a 20 from the Centre of Arricife. I could without entrance ticket while this normal is required. Small museum with rooms, photography, fine art, paintings. Nice cafeteria and the castle is decorated white with grey volcanic stone. View images in the water. Unfortunately, next to an industrial Harbour

  • The Museum is well located and castillo is interesting, but it was soon made the tour of the works. Finally the employee who sells tickets to moping at the entrance and the public is few; It seems more interested in the bar restaurant downstairs by exhibitions

  • Originally built in 1779 by order of the King of Spain this small fortification now houses a contemporary art gallery. The building was left to ruin but in the 80's the architect Cesar Manrique restored it to its former glory and added a restaurant for good measure. Situated inbetween the old port and the new this fortification wasn't very effective at spotting pirate attacks but today you can enjoy the exhibition (including Jason Taylor 2016). The restuarant is open daily and overlooks the port, ideal for watching cruise ships come and go (mainly winter season). This restaurant also has the most photographed toilets on the whole island, curious?
  • I took the stairs up to the roof and also to the mid-level "underwater" exhibit which was good. While I didn't eat there, the restaurant seemed very nice with floor to ceiling windows overlooking harbor.
  • I would love to see the museum uber the see which will be fulfilled with the sculptures exposed
  • Great Museum, the restaurant offers fantastic views on the harbour.
  • Nice view of the harbour. Rather small museum.
