This museum is designed, it seems, for tourists to be able to imbibe a cursory understanding of local history during a 15-minute walk-in visit. OK - that's what museums aimed at tourists are about. But while offering only a narrow view of local history -...More

Taste of canarian culture. Fulfilled with souvenirs that describes canarian lifestyle. Old building with quite an interesting history. If you visit La Orotava, worth to see, to climb up and down the montain roads in the town.
