An archaeological museum in Gran Canaria
The Museo Canario in the capital city Las Palmas in northeast Gran Canaria hosts a large collection of prehistoric artifacts from the whole Canarian archipelago. These are displayed in a series of exhibition rooms and are fascinating for anyone curious about the history of the Canary Islands. The collection of mummies and skeletons is of particular interest and are the most photographed exhibits (no flash allowed). Enter the mummy room and you feel like you are in an old-fashioned laboratory.
