The Museum of Nature and Man can be found within the Old Civil Hospital in Santz Cruz, the island’s capital city. The museum is home to a range of permanent exhibitions, which includes a formidable colletion of mummies, including the famous Mummy of San Andreas.
There are also 13 Egyptian ceramic pots which are dated to be as old as 5,700 years – one of them is the oldest piece of this civilisation to be found anywhere in a Spanish museum.
Also to be found at the Museum of Nature and Man is a fine selection of fossil remains of extinct marine arthropods. If you have a passion for natural history, the Museum of Nature and Man is a sight not to be missed on your trip to Tenerife. In fact, it is regarded as one of the most important museums to be found anywhere in the North Atlantic.
