  • Free entry, lots of interactive stuff for kids and adults alike. Absolutely fascinating to see about the rigours of the round the world race. Looks like it has a pleasant bar/cafe upstairs too.  more »
  • The first thing to note is that the entrance is free. I highlight this because there are places where there are no pay input and when we travel 4 people is greatly appreciated. It is a museum where you can touch everything (also is appreciated), teach you a real ship and how Live crew members, some of which there is another videogame and Simulator. It is located in the port, logical, but thanks a nice environment

  • 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.
