  • We did the tour and we learned a lot about the race, it is a very interesting world! Who has not had contact with the navigation (as we so far) will be surprised with the exploits of the sailors, in addition there is a simulator and several interactive installations to make it even more fun. For experts, it is must-see! Exhibitions recalling past races, models of boats, projection of documentaries... lovers of navigation undoubtedly will enjoy with passion! You can also visits one of the ships that took part in one of the previous editions, it seems incredible that they can live there for months. You also explain how handled, how they eat, how they sleep... Loved the children! In fact, they offer workshops related to the sostenibilad. And admission to everything is free! I certainly recommend this visit for the whole family!

  • Very interesting and well worth a visit if you are in Alicante, particularly as it is free. Unfortunately, like most such attractions, the merchandise in its shop is horrifically expensive!  more »

  • Very interesting displays relating to the Volvo race and the boats. The staff are enthusiastic and helpful. We were able to see go on the boat displayed outside and see just how the crew must live when at sea. There is a cafe/bar upstairs with a view of part of the harbour. Well worth visiting even for those of us who scarcely know port from starboard. Value for money? Entrance is free!
  • Nice place to visit if you only have a few hours. Pleasant, informative displays of facts about our oceans and of the Volvo yacht racing team. On weekends you can try out the simulator on premises. Admission is free. Nice place to bring children.
  • Great place to roam for a short trip. Video exhibition was really interesting, we sat there for an hour, amazing stories and a brilliant view into the experiences of all crew members. Free entry plus not busy.
  • Lovely place to visit. Try out a virtual sailing craft and race two craft together. Nice location overlooking the marina with excellent coffee shop on the second floor. Wonderful information displayed on all aspects of round the world sailing. Well worth a visit!
  • Really nice and free of charge. Also teaches a thing or two about our planet and how we can stop destroy the environment.
