Located in Barranco de Santos next to the bridge Puente Galcerán, with a surface area of 1,052.74 square meters, Casa del Carnaval represents a milestone in the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife and it provides a new way of understanding this festival. It has been declared as an “International Tourist Attraction” and this is how we would like it to be regarded by its visitors.
The area has a permanent exhibition hall with costumes and interesting items related to the Carnival, a multi-purpose room for temporary exhibits and presentations of all kinds. This multi-purpose hall is called ‘Sala Suspi’, in honour of a well-known murguero, the murga is a group made by 20-100 people that sing songs about nowadays topics, for example politics, but always in a funny way. A shop where you can find merchandising from the museum and take a present, also we have and spot to rest. Also here we have a centre for documentation and conservation on our Carnival’s heritage aimed at experts, journalists, students and researchers, which will allow the cataloguing of funds.
Definitely the visit through the Casa del Carnaval will be a unique experience, thanks to the different digital applications that allow the visitor to feel and experience the festival from the inside, including the opportunity to try on costumes.
Santa Cruz de Tenerife now has a Carnival all year round! Come and enjoy it!
