MUNA, Museo de Naturaleza y Arqueología

Museum located of the metropolitan area of Tenerife

The Museum (MUNA​) is housed in an emblematic building in the island capital: the Former Civil Hospital, an outstanding example of the islands’ Neoclassical architecture. Its renovation scheme sought a spatial balance between the areas intended for exhibitions and those aimed at other cultural and leisure uses (documentation centre and library, multi-use room, restaurant, shop, courtyard and gardens, etc.).

On one hand, this museum allows visitors to find out about the natural wealth of the Canary Islands and, on the other, to discover the largest existing collection related to the culture of the Guanche, the aboriginal people who lived on the island of Tenerife before the arrival of the first European conquerors.​
