  • Site to learn a little history about the competition and its protagonists. For gnte that not know much about the candle and their boats is a good alternative.

  • Interesting, educational and entertaining even if you're not fond of sailing. However, can not be assessed what is not, and the afternoon in that we were was not operating the 360 movie and Simulator, or temporary display, which left him us very lame. In any case, I recommend to visit it, to see if you have more luck.

  • 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.
