Museo de la Pirateria, Teguise

3.1
#4 of 16 in Things to do in Teguise
While Museo de la Pirateria is not an easy place to access, the museum's contents and remarkable location make the trip worth it. Sitting atop a hill overlooking Teguise, the castle requires visitors to navigate a narrow road with sharp drops on either side, and even parking spots are located on the edge of a cliff because of limited space. Regardless, incredible views await you in every direction. The fortification once protected the land from pirates, but now acts as a memorial. Learn about the history of piracy in the area, see ancient weapons, and even examine a replica of the castle as it once was. Models of the ships are also available.

  • We have used this museum to spend the last hours before our departure. You may expect no particular scientific Museum, but our daughter, the currently also pirates-beigeistert is, loved it. I also not much more expected entry, what is so dirt cheap compared to the other island attractions for € 3. You can easily explore the various rooms of the Castle and if you have time and the inclination, can read through various information panels. Otherwise, kids just have fun than to explore ship to discover the pirate treasure, and from the battlements down into the environment to a room paneled with wood look. There are only a few parking spaces directly at the Castle, but not latecomers, should get something else. I would dare the ascent out of the place definitely only without children...

  • The Castle, a small place on the edge of the mouth of a volcano, it is fine. The Museum inside instead is unwatchable. Equipment suitable for kindergarten children. There are pubs around the world that have pirate-themed set up much much better than this "Museum".

  • Admission € 3 (were not in there), but alone the views and the circulation of the volcano's crater are worth a trip there in any case. At the Museum directly, there are very few parking spaces, it is rather a "wait until one goes away and then try to come together", therefore prefer the Bay before use and the rest walk a few metres.

  • Beautiful view and there is also something to learn about the history of piracy. The price of €3 is therefore justified and okay.

  • Place not great and there are things of little interest apart from the documentaries that take the various captains of the time.
