  • This is a must-see thing to do in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The Casa de Colón is located in the historic centre of the city. It is a visit and excursion in the surroundings to make it in a full day. There is also a variety of restaurants to choose from.

  • Great piece of history. We learned a lot about Columb's adventures. Amazing presentations and displays.
  • Informative and chilled out museum. Translations in many languages and a couple of macaws to spend time with after/during the experience. Enjoyed whole experience.
  • OK museum. Parrots that live there are very funny.
  • Not possible to enter the rooms. There was a room with only a computer inside.
  • This House where lived Columbus retraces his life including his different travels to America (multimedia multilingual)
