If you want to know the history and culture in Tenerife, stop by the Guanche Museum in Icod de Los Vinos. The Guanches were the aborigines who inhabited the islands before the conquest of the Spanish and, to this day, part of their culture is still preserved in museums and exhibitions. In all the Canaries there are frozen in time pieces of the prehistory of each island.

A wonderful and different museum for being partially open-air is one of the Güímar Pyramids. It has interior exhibitions dedicated to the history of these mysterious monuments as well as fantastic voyages in the name of ship science like the RA I and RA II. You will walk through a garden dedicated to poisonous species, an auditorium in which documentary projections are made on the different topics dealt with by the museum and through multiple outdoor areas where you can stroll, see the pyramids, and relax in the sun or the shadow as you spend the day.
