The Museum of Nature and Man of Santa Cruz de Tenerife is a highly significant establishment, since it shelters the most important archeological findings on the island. Thus, the museum displays items related both to the natural riches of Tenerife and to pre-Hispanic human remains. The museum abounds in preserved paleontology, entomology, botanic and terrestrial vertebrates collections, being deemed, at the same time, the best “botanical atlas” in the Canary Islands.

The museum consists of 3 sections, namely, the Museum of Nature Sciences, the Museum of Architecture and the Canary Institute of Bio-Anthropology. The edifice is located in the center of the city, and the building is an embodiment of neoclassical architecture.
