Permanent Exhibition – The Canary Museum

The permanent exhibition on display in the halls of The Canary Museum has a monographic character, dedicated to the Aboriginal population of Gran Canaria, the Canaries. It attempts to show the visitor the ways of life of this human group of Berber origin, which inhabited the island from the time close to the change of era until the fifteenth century, when the conquest and colonization of Castilian occurs. The organization of settlements, economic activities or funeral practices are some of the aspects that the visitor will discover during his tour through the eleven rooms that make up our Museum.
