Easy to find and good parking. Two very reasonable cafes on-site. The musuem is well worth seeing but the stars are obviously the three (perfect-) replica ships that can be safely boarded (though wear sensible shoes and don't let young children off the leash -...More

Impresssive replica’s of the 3 ships of Christopher Columbo. You can enter the inside of “la Nina”-“la Pinta”-“la Santa Maria”. Not everything from the exhibition is in English. Still a one of a kind experience !

Great to see these full-sized replicas of Columbus's three ships of discovery. You can go onboard and explore. I was amazed how small the ships are and how the sailors lived on-board.

The caravels are similar to,the originals and though not navigable they give @ good perspective about sea travel In the age of discovery. Don’t miss the pretty good large video presentation. Even if you missed the English presentation, The Spanish one is clear enough to...More
