The Aeronautical Museum responds to the interest of citizens to know the aeronautical history of Lanzarote, and also makes possible the preservation of a historic and emblematic building, since the Museum is located in the first construction for passengers, built at the Lanzarote airport in the early 1940s.
In the Museum, among other interesting pieces distributed throughout its 10 rooms, you can see the original mural by the Belgian painter Jean P. Hock, made in 1959.
The Museum, which has the “Wellcome Family” recognition for being family-friendly, has a specific program for outreach and guided tours called Visits a la carte. It is aimed especially at Lanzarote residents, the island's schools and educational centers, and specific groups.
The César Manrique-Lanzarote airport inaugurated, in 2010, the Aena Environmental Classroom. Located next to the Museum, it is divided into four thematic rooms dedicated to the four basic elements for life: water, air, fire and earth.
Various activities related to environmental issues take place in this venue, such as conferences, workshops, presentations, screenings, and so on.
The contents are aimed mainly at the child and youth population with very clear sustainable messages that they can put into practice and that help them to become aware of the importance of respecting the natural environment, remembering that it is located on an Island declared a Biosphere Reserve by Unesco.
Next to the low-relief Mural by local artist César Manrique, located in the Inter-island Terminal T2, there is an open space, converted into an exhibition hall.
There the creations of artists, both local, national and international, have a place, who find in this site a privileged place to spread their works.
The César Manrique-Lanzarote airport offers students, during the school year, the possibility of getting to know its facilities through arranged visits.
The itineraries followed during the visits depend on the school age of the students and the educational programs of the teachers. The visits are personalized according to the interests and objectives of each group and its educational programs.
The educational centers interested in carrying out this activity must contact the Aeronautical Museum to register and coordinate according to the number of students, ages and day they wish to visit.
The airport offers an interesting program of joint visits to various facilities. The program has bilingual guides and is coordinated with the island's teachers to adapt to the educational programs taught in schools.
