15/05/2012 Lanzarote (KMC) - Lanzarote’s original airport building will commemorate International Museum Day with a week of longer opening hours and a musical performance. From Monday 14th May to Friday 18th May the museum will open from 9am to 6pm.

 

On Friday 18th May, which is International Museum Day, there will be Latin American music from singer Luis Alberto Gonzalez called ‘Cuando el museo suena’ (when the museum sounds). The performance begins at 7pm and is open to the public.

 

Luis Alberto Gonzalez is an artist who arrived in Lanzarote from Tenerife in 1998. Since then he has been involved in music on Lanzarote, giving various performances around the island, his musical sound is raw and acoustic, with warm vocals and he enjoys audience participation.

 

The aeronautical museum, managed by Aena airports, is installed in the building of Lanzarote’s former airport terminal. It was built in the early 1940s and was used between 1946 and 1970 while the larger airport terminal 2 was under construction. Admission to the museum is free, and the exhibition is spread over ten different rooms which cover subjects such as the beginning of aviation in Lanzarote, the first flights to Lanzarote, the first airport terminal and the control tower. The space offers an educational and informative experience through photographs, exhibits and model aeroplanes. It is also interactive and invites visitor participation through information technology, audiovisual and multimedia displays.

 

The museum is open to the public all year round and normal opening hours are 10am to 2pm. It is located within the grounds of the current airport, just next to the dual carriageway into Arrecife. Personal tours of the museum are available by ringing: 928 846 365.
