The space has more than 2,000 for exhibition, as well as spaces for dissemination activities for schoolchildren and for research, among others. "It will be a living museum that will summarize the new investigations that are carried out in the Betancuria Convention and in the islet of Lobos, which are putting on the table knowledge that until recently they did not have about life in Fuerteventura before the Conquest "said Marcial Morales. "With this museum the Island will have two museum spaces to present the pre-Hispanic history of Fuerteventura and the centuries after the Conquest, in the museum that will be in the Casa de los Coroneles with a project from the Government of the Canary Islands."

For his part, Marcelino Sardinia said that the Insular Archaeological Museum "will be a great step forward for Betancuria for the municipality and for the people who visit us".

The building is distributed on three levels. The lower level, consists of an exhibition hall, the workshop and warehouse. The intermediate level consists of an exhibition hall and an assembly hall. The upper level consists of a temporary exhibition room, the cafeteria and the terrace

The ways of life of the old settlers of Fuerteventura, as well as the role that the woman had, the burial systems and the games are part of the Archaeological Museum exhibition that will bring visitors to the pre-Hispanic history of the Island.

Yes, it's the one up the hill behind the former archaelogical museum.  It's opposite the unfinished Ayuntamiento building, and below the primary school.
