The scale models of the Earth and Mars

There’s a great exhibition about the Earth and Mars in Palacio Salazar in Santa Cruz de La Palma until Saturday May 26th. It features lots of great photos of Mars, scale models of the two planets, and explains the similarities and differences in atmosphere and weather, geology, and hydrology. Even better, they have a genuine meteorite from Mars which you can actually touch.

The exhibition is free and it’s open from 9 am to 1 pm and 5-8 pm, Monday to Friday, and on Saturdays from 10 am to 2 pm.
