The Casa del Carnaval (Carnival Museum) in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, reopened its doors on Monday after renewing the content of the permanent exhibition and digital media, updating exhibits to those of the latest edition of the festival. Among the main changes is the exhibition of more of the carnival posters from various years in the reception hall, while in the Permanent Exhibition Hall a new section, called 'Did you know that ...? ', has been added with information of historical and social importance and curiosities.

The Queen's Hall now houses the costume of the Carnival Queen of 2019, accompanied by some of her maids of honour.

Next to the showcase of 'Ayer' (Yesterday), a costume called 'Tajaraste' from 1987 will be exhibited as part of a continued discourse on the history and evolution of the costumes of the Carnival Queen.

The video summary of Carnival 2019 will be reproduced on the video wall, as well as the different summaries dedicated to the comparsas, musical groups or murgas, while the Costume Workshop has also been renewed, incorporating new costumes and headdresses.
