Even if you are not a sailor the Museo is worth a visit. The sense of adventure was all there. Check timings for a visit around a boat.

After we had lunch on an NCL cruise ship were walking back to the car park and spotted the museum. Very nice staff and lots of interesting informative and interactive items. A great end to a good day.

This was a good walk around the marina which finished off our good days visit to allicante. We were unable to visit the galleon as this attraction was closed

We had some time to spare on our last day and found ourselves by the harbour so decided to go and a look round this exhibition. Even if you not a yachting fan, it is still really interesting. Some of the displays are interactive and good for children.

Loads to see and do and it is free! Situated by Alicante Marina, the exhibition is very well displayed and full of information. Just nice to wander round in the sun looking at the yachts too! Plenty of cafes etc offering drinks and snacks, or you can walk down to the main Marina for some very good restaurants.
