What's on during your visit to Fuerteventura

Betancuria Archaeological Museum

Betancuria Archaeological Museum

This museum has two exhibition halls equipped with explanatory panels, one for Aboriginal material culture and the other to the spiritual world, both exhibit some archaeological pieces belonging to the Aboriginal stage of the island. The museum began with the donation by old Fuerteventurans of various pieces found by accident in the fields. Vicente Ruiz, a resident of Betancuria, was the one commissioned to gather and organise the material.

After crossing the threshold, visitors will receive information about the paleontological wealth of the Island. Photographs and models of aboriginal inhabitants, ceramic remains, tools made from bone or molluscs all help us to discover the life of Fuerteventurans in years gone by. Without forgetting the religious idols made from stone and the information about Tindaya and its podomorphs as centre of the magical-religious world of the ancient Fuerteventurans. Panels and illustrations invite the young and old to read quietly, and thereby discover what the old Fuerteventurans used to eat, their techniques for pasturelands and fishing or how they managed to obtain much-prized water.

Opening hours : Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10:00 to 18:00 (Closed Sundays and Mondays)
