The Governing Body of the City of Santa Cruz de Tenerife have met to confirm the project to create the first Museum of History for the City with a budget of around 700,000 euros, and will be based as the star attraction within the Palacio de Carta.
This new museum will display a journey through history, where the most relevant events that took place since the foundation of the city in 1494 will be shown.
Mayor, Jose Manuel Bermudez, said “We want it to be a museum of the modern history of Santa Cruz, and this has been achieved from the support and influence of the project from many heritage associations, including the Tertulia de Amigos del 25 Julio”.
The proposed display spaces in the new museum will present an interactive room on the ground floor, where different videos and applications will introduce visitors to different aspects and characteristics of the history and symbols of the city of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
