The shipping line was very important to Gran Canaria, and tharefore, the building and the Elder Museum have assumed the name. Anybody interested in science and technology will be fascinated by the Elder Museum. The fun starts outside the Elder Museum with a resident aircraft simulator and inside the Elder Museum there are lots of interactive exhibits to keep it's visitors amused for hours. The Elder Museum has exhibits like an industrial robot that spot welds cars and an IMAX cinema to name but just two of them.
