Canarian Museum, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

4.0
#3 of 9 in Museums in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
Visit Canarian Museum for a detailed cultural, natural, and archaeological history of the Canary Islands. Founded in 1879, it is the largest institution of its kind in the Canary Islands. This museum offers detailed explanations of the way of life of the inhabitants of the islands before the Christian Conquest and Spanish colonization of the 15th century. Of particular interest here is the large room of cabinets filled with the skulls of native people. You can also take advantage of the museum's large library of newspaper and historical archives. Free on Mondays, and every day for children under 12 years old. Canarian Museum is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Edition.

  • Well see the island from this perspective-how they lived on it before people, where they lived, what they. The Museum is not media-old Museum with an exhibition behind the glass. The biggest impression on everyone they do skeletons, Mummies and skulls.
