What a wonderful, quirky and interesting museum! Could have spent several days here enjoying the various rooms, displays and the stunning garden full of interesting little pottery gnomes and animals. Well worth a visit!

Billed as an ethnographic museum this eclectic collection was assembled by a husband and his artist wife. Her imaginative and thought-provoking additions and juxtapositions enliven what could have been a rather dry assemblage of bygones. The museum fills every corner of an impressive old winery,...More

This private museum has not only a history of the island but also the family who are 7th generation Lanzarote. We had hoped we would see the house but that is owned by the family and not open to the public. The museum is mainly...More

Much too expensive and bad texts. The lights were off and a lot of rooms closed. There was no coherence and I didn't get into the sphere at all

This small museum is housed in what was once the private residence of a local family who collected all manner of artefacts of how life was in Lanzarote before tourism. We were met by a welcoming lady at reception and given a folder with information...More
