  • I liked this outdoor family-friendly museum mainly because it a welcome change from the overcrowded attractions. Breathtaking views and some interesting information about the history of the Islands. And they let you borrow a dog, for some reason.
  • Mundo Aborigen is an attempt to present the life of aboriginal Canarian people (Guanches) in the form of a small settlement at the top of a hill overlooking the sea and Maspalomas. The settlement contains ordinary houses, chief's house, the meeting hall, "church", women's house, hall of justice, prison, and even an execution (not for very small children!). All this with original vegetation and animals (sheep, pigs, dogs). You even can borrow a dog to keep on leash during the round. A very good ifdea, and the realization is quite ambitious, but it is clear that the exhibition is struggling so it is already a little shopworn. Still, it is a good stop on your way to San Bartolome. Don't let the plastic Indians to turn you off! There is much to learn during the (one hour) round. And it is not too crowded!
  • The place is fine with good views. But everything is reconstructed. Don't think there is one single thing that is originally. Everything says in Spanish. Perhaps child-friendly as there are a few animals around the paddocks.

  • Everything has something in the years come, many houses not opened. Good but is the four-language signage, explained everything well. Good location at the bus stop, close to reach.

  • Highly recommended. Great mountain panorama and views to the dunes of Maspalomas. Lots of interesting and vivid about the life of the old Canarian.
