  • Absolutely fantastic day drip to this very well presented historical place. There, you can find something that will stay with you forever. Something you don't see very often. The museum, the cinema the artifacts displayed , the sounds brings you to the times of the shipping of that era. Christopher Columbus must be proud of himself there. There is something for children too, to stop by, like puzzles. The coffee shop with hot food if you were hungry too. I've been there in February but I presume that must be more going on during summer months. Loved it💖
  • A wonderful day, the faithful and to scale models of all three of Columbus boats are there to go on to. Spend as much time as you like exploring above and below decks. We visited on a winter Sunday and it was very quiet. Superb inside the museum and out. Disabled access, free and excellent parking.
  • Beautiful historic site with great replicas. Very interesting to see the builds of the ships and how they differ. Some of the information provided is a little lean and some of the artefacts don't have descriptions but other than this it is a great little exhibit which is only a couple euro for students.
  • Brilliant value for money. Would recommend for anyone who loves the history of Christopher Columbus..so good to be able to go on the boats...a real insight 👍
  • Absolutely no information about opening hours on 31/12. Many tourists had to leave disappointed... :(
