About
Enclavado en unas antiguas casas cuevas, habitadas desde tiempos de los antiguos canarios. Fueron adquiridas en 1962 por Don Santiago Aranda, quien las rehabilitó manteniendo las características de una vivienda típica canaria. Tras su adquisición por el Ayuntamiento de Artenara están destinadas a museo de etnografía doméstica. Su interior está dotado de mobiliario de gran tipismo. En sus aposentos se hallan camas de hierro, con cobertores de colchas y traperas de artesanía local, cajas de cedro y tea, sillas y taburetes de líneas austeras, así como otros detalles de carácter etnográfico propios de las viviendas rústicas del lugar. Los oficios más representativos de Artenara también están aquí mostrados.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We visited this as part of our island your. It was interesting to see this and see how people use to live. This was a great experience and well laid out. Certainly worth a visit.

We were met by a nice young woman who told us briefly about the history of the village and why the people still choose to build their houses partly into the mountainside. The museum is very small but an interesting experience worth a visit for those interested in history.

A warm welcome in our own language from a friendly young woman who introduced the cave houses and made herself available for any questions. This was a fascinating visit and entirely free. It’s a little off the beaten path (we missed it on our first visit to Artenara) so look out for it.

An absolute gem of a museum. A friendly guide welcomed us, explained the site to us and gave us guides in English for us to explore with at our leisure. All of the caves were beautifully laid out and it was fascinating to gain a deeper understanding of the history of the island.

You can visit the Casa Cueva Museum for free. You are given friendly welcome on arrival and an introduction before left to explore this genuinely fascinating museum of cave rooms at your own pace. You can make a donation. We certainly did.

an open-air museum of how people lived in caves (not in the Stone Age, but still in the 20th century - see the room with furniture from the 1950s). It was interesting for us because we then went to stay at casa cueva and could compare the current modern equipment. They had it well thought out in those caves!
I appreciate printed guides in many languages including Czech!
Artenara is a beautiful mountain town, although very windy

A fantastic museum with a variety of cultural items and information. The host was extremely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable of the history of the region. His passion was evident and he had truly created a special place. We recommend stopping at the Centro de Interpretación de Risco Caído y las Montañas Sagradas to learn a bit about the history of the region first before coming here to see and experience it.

Lovely little museum dedicated to life in the caves of the area. Well curated and presented and not just piles of junk like so many museums of its type. Lady at the "desk" was lovely and had lots of information and chat in many languages

Really interesting cave houses with a beautiful view visitors can explore. There's no set charge, just donations. Desiree warmly welcomes visitors upon arrival. She speaks multiple languages fluently and is knowledgable and enthusiastic about the houses and we really enjoyed chatting to her. There's also an amazing little cave church just 5 mins walk to be explored too.

The museum is a must see if you visit Artenara. The guide is very friendly, tells not only about the museum,but also about the history of Artenara. The rooms are full of interesting things,and the views are spectacular. The entrance is for donations,so basically you can visit first and then decide how much you would like to pay.
