At Muelle de las Carabelas, see replicas of Columbus’ ships and learn about the explorer's journey to the New World. The museum paints a picture of 15th-century Spain through reproductions of maps, arms, and treaties. An audio-visual production tells the story of the sailors who made the voyage to the New World. Board the Pinta, Niña, and Santa María, which are now occasionally used in TV and film productions. Visit the medieval port city neighborhood exhibit to view how locals lived when Columbus set sail, and the Isla del Encuentro exhibit to see the world Columbus came upon when his ships landed.

  • We wanted to visit the vessels on a Saturday afternoon as we were driving by Huelva and were disappointed the place was closed and there was no sign up to advise why and for how long. So we continued ...  more »
  • As other reviewers have commented, this is still sealed off with people arriving and leaving, disappointed as we were, not to get a closer look at the boats.  more »

  • Super closed... what a bummer should open back up next month.
  • Closed for renovation, not mentioned here. Looks like the managers don't know that Google exist.
  • 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!
  • Closed for renovation in February 2017
  • Old ships that sailed to discover America 500 years ago. ..
