Exodus and Return of the Tenerife Guanche Mummies
02 noviembre 2022 - 30 junio 2023
The Tenerife Museum of Nature and Archaeology (MUNA) is introducing a new exhibition module showing the location and tracing the history of scattered archaeological vestiges. Since the European conquest in the late fifteenth century, the Guanche mummies have been the objects of pillage and plunder. Valuable specimens ended up in distant lands. This module shows five of these mummies, which were recently brought back to the island.
In addition, there is a replica of the mummy kept at the National Archaeological Museum in Madrid. Found in Barranco de Erques, it is an adult male specimen, and it makes the best-preserved human remains of the Guanche culture.
When: From 2 November 2022 to 30 June 2023
Where: Tenerife Museum of Nature and Archaeology (MUNA), Santa Cruz de Tenerife
Sundays and holidays 10am-5pm
24, 25 and 31 December, 1 and 6 January, closed
