  • Very interesting visit to the interior of the caravels to understand the prowess of those daring adventurers. Very nice and funny environment with the recreation of the indigenous world.

  • Unfortunately, I could see only the three ships of a sizable distance. The museum is closed for renovation. So you will first have to look on the website to know if it's open again.

  • Of the best places to learn something of the history of Huelva and its environment, to spend a nice morning or afternoon and dive into discovery of America...

  • Unbelievable place! Reconstruction of 3 ships Christopher Columbus used in his first travel to discover indies and we all know how this ended up! THE Very Place Christopher Columbus and his brill crew set sail for the very first time for the reaches of India only to find impoverished - to the point (of his/their view) of being naked - people. Feeling lost and down they did not even realised they have found the New World. Knowing all this from school does not compare to visit The Muelle de las Carabelas to bring it all in their lives perspective. We are talking a waterfront exhibition with life-size exact replicas of Columbus's three ships: the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa María, built for the 500th anniversary celebrations in 1992. AWESOME!!!Not only can you walk on the ships but also see the village in which they prepared for the long journey. Very interesting and interacting!
  • great
