This is an interesting and well laid out museum, providing a lot of background about the island as well as about its cheese production. We would have liked to have had the opportunity to taste the cheese. The cactus garden was very attractive.

We thought the museum was very well run and the exhibits were all clearly labelled in Spanish as well as in English.

Really well done mini museum, and the staff were very welcoming, even opening the shop during their lunch break so we could buy some cheese! Lots of interesting facts, and the cafe is very pleasant as well, easily a good spot for lunch.

The museum does not offer a lot more then 3 rooms, only 2 of which dedicated to cheese. A nice display about the origin of the islands and animal and plant life. The cheesemaking history and the part about all the different goats was mindboggling....More
