This is a village built 200 years before the first turists ever set foot on Fuerteventura. Now a museum well worth visiting.Each of the seven houses are set out as if the owner has just left the room. The grounds are well cared for and easy to walk around. The farm animals are a lovely suprise & quite happy to... More

I get no pleasure from writing this, as this place could be great, with the right leadership and investment. When we went in February 2016, the exhibition hall was locked, one of the little complexes was locked up, the toilets on the far side of the sight were locked, but that wan't the worst of it. For me, what put... More

We love this place - old houses to explore, gardens, crafts people at work and of course the animals - donkeys and camels. A beautiful AND educational visit.

We were recommended to visit this echo museum to see how life was in Fuerteventura many years ago. The 5€ entrance fee was reasonable but more expensive than other museums in the area. Other reviewers have stated that very little information was available in English and that is true today. Many of the buildings were locked and we felt that... More

Unfortunately the day we visited it was a rainy October day and the place was deserted.We were the only visitors. There was very little literature in English and the 2 ladies who were demonstrating their crafts spoke very little English.. 1 was weaving and the other was making pots from clay. The place did have a feel that it had... More

If you want to see a bit of the real Fuerteventura away from the coastal resorts then this is well worth it. It is in a lovely area with stunning views all around and if you have only ever experienced the beaches then this will give you a taste of the interior landscape. There could have been a more detailed... More

My wife and I were taken here by a private guide Penelope. She was very informative and took us around the buildings explaining that it was as little as 40 years ago that people still lived like this. It was a very tough life with only the very basics, with which to survive. Water was scarce and you were rich... More

An outdoor museum with houses representing how people here lived 100 years ago. It's quite cute and good to explore. There's a few goats and animals too. You are given a leaflet explaining what each house is.

The open-air museum surrounded by volcanoes is one of those ‘somnolent’ skansens. The only way to get there is by car. The place is not overcrowded (thanks heavens!) so you can feel completely free sightseeing. You walk there on your own with a small map but there are plenty of additional information provided for you. The Skansen is composed of... More
