  • This museum is located in La Casa Lercaro, ja very important family in centuries past. It has two courtyards, the first is the main, is accessed after a chromed poly stone portico and highlights its wooden columns supporting a gallery of wood with large wood windows. The second courtyard is surrounded by stables, warehouses and stores, kitchens, and this garden. Rooms and rooms are very beautiful wooden ceilings and floors and there is a legend that a female ghost haunting them. Where the Museum falters is in its collection, which is the real reason why we tend to go to a Museum, tries to give as an overview of the history of the island that remains something very superficial, nothing to do for example, with the Canarian Museum of Palms which is fascinating in its explanation of the pre-Hispanic history of the Islands and much more interesting. So if someone wants to know more direct and profound history and above all the Prehispanic Canary recommend the Canarian Museum of las palmas de gran canaria, an outstanding institution in this regard

  • The Casa Lercaro, now a Museum of the history of Tenerife is located in San Agustin Street where, in the past they lived the most powerful families of the city. It belonged to the rich and influential family gallery and as such is a beautiful mansion. It has two courtyards, the first is the Manor and is supported by columns, above which rises a set of wooden windows decorated with Mannerist motifs. The second court was that of bondage where the stables, warehouses and other dependencies were. The same House itself is absolutely recommended for their beauty and even legends of the ghost that lives there. The Museum is also interesting because walking around the various departments through the history of Tenerife from the conquest (late 15th to the 20th century) and this tour see the social and economic evolution of the island. All the concepts I believe that Casa Lercaro is to be visited by anyone interested in the place you are visiting.

  • If you want to have a global view of history from the conquest of the island, to the present day is a must-see, perhaps the first visit, so when you explore the island you'll love.

  • Good stuff to see, awesome Audioguide that works thru their wifi on your smartphone. Not very interactive.
  • Very interesting museum. In fact there are three museums in one. It iw worth spending the morning over there. Three is also a good cafeteria in one of the wonderful patios.
  • Great building. If were Zoro I would rent this when I was in town. Nice Don Quixote tribute somewhere inside
  • Terrific audio guide using your smart phone. Great way to learn about the islands. Takes about an hour.
