How to get to the Museum

The Canarian Museum is located in the old historic quarter of Vegueta, close to the cathedral and to Santa Ana square. It is a privileged spot, often traversed by visitors to the city's old quarter.

Two bus lines connect the harbour end of the city and Las Canteras beach with the old quarter, lines 1 and 2, which terminate at the Pérez Galdós theatre and Alameda de Colón respectively. From the tourist resorts of Maspalomas and Playa del Inglés, those interested in visiting the Museum  should catch lines 50 and 30 of the Global bus company (The terminal is by the Maspalomas lighthouse).
