  • This is a village built 200 years before the first turists ever set foot on Fuerteventura. Now a museum well worth visiting.Each of the seven houses are set out as if the owner has just left the room....  more »
  • I get no pleasure from writing this, as this place could be great, with the right leadership and investment. When we went in February 2016, the exhibition hall was locked, one of the little complexes ...  more »
  • We love this place - old houses to explore, gardens, crafts people at work and of course the animals - donkeys and camels. A beautiful AND educational visit.  more »
  • Very quiet, I mean very quiet, silent, lovely. Small but interesting open plan Musium. Up to an hour. Little bar café.
  • This small museum aims to give an overview of what life on Fuerteventura might have looked like in recent history (19th/early 20th century). It consists of a number of small buildings clustered together which collectively offer a glimpse into a time when Fuerteventura wasn't just a tourist destination. It costs five euros per adult and we spent over an hour there, slowly wandering around the different buildings. Although the English translations provided are absolutely atrocious, it's not too difficult to discern what each room represents from the pictures and artefacts on show. A fun bonus is that there is a donkey and some goats to see/smell! It feels a little bit run down but overall it's worth visiting if you're passing through the area.
  • Thats a real interesting museum about farming and craftsmanship on the island. Historic, authentic buildings. Inside you will find ladies, producing typical products with historic techniques and machines, that you can buy to. As in all museums on Fuerteventura all in Spanish Language and the ladies do not speak a word English. So, thats a petty, they can not tell you anything about there interesting techniques. If you have a good command in Spanish, they will very friendly show you more and let you try yourself.
  • A wonderful place to visit for adults and children alike
  • Informative as well as interesting
