We visited the museum on the day we flew back home. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The 1940s building was beautiful and I loved going up to the control tower. Some of the photographs and instruments on display were fascinating. There was some information provided in English, but not really enough and I think that we would have got... More

The staff were excellent, friendly and knowledgable and very enthusiastic about the exhibits and the history of local civil aviation. There were plenty of audio-visual exhibits, uniforms and equipment... More

An interesting way to spend some time for anyone wanting to learn about early aviation and the history of air travel in Lanzarote and the Canaries. The enthusiasm of the girl at reception made a good experience a fantastic one -... More

If you are interested in the history of civil aviation, this is definitely worth a visit. If you are lucky, you'll be shown round by the staff.
