Yesterday, Wednesday, we visited the Museo Agrícola El Patio – The Open Air Museum of Agriculture in Tiagua.
The nearest equivalent I can think of in the UK would be the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum in Sussex, as most others of this type, in the UK, focus on industrial heritage.
Compared to the UK museums of this type, this museum is not very extensive, but has excellent exhibits and comprehensive interpretation/information which is in English as well (albeit with a few small errors!)
Essentially, it is a museum of traditional Canarian peasant life and culture, and frankly anyone from the Outer Hebrides or indeed anyone who comes from a community where traditional small-scale agriculture is still practiced, will have no problem making sense of what they see – possibly without any translation.
Here’s some highlights from our visit to the museum.
