  • A must see even if your not in to sailing, its great for an 1 hour tour children would also like this. 
  • As well as narrates everything related to them, whole you times, accidents, the joys, difficulties and you see all sorts of experiences in those important races, really is a pleasure to visit them and something strange, is total free

  • A fascinating insight into the phenomenal challenge presented to both competitors and organisers who participate in the tri-annual Volvo Ocean Race. The Museum is co-located with the Global Headquarters of the Volvo Ocean organization in the port from which the race starts. A comprehensive multimedia display is on offer here, with examples of yachts from previous races on permanent show outside the building.
  • It's free and has a pleasant staff. You get to learn things you probably never thought would be interesting, but i was! Definitely worth a visit. The downside was that som of the things to do was out of order.
  • A must see for sailors and sea lovers!!
  • Interesting presentation on this return to the world of sailing. There is not much physical material and more works with panels and screens. But it is one of the best facilities in Alicante.
